Where and When: Metricon Stadium, Saturday 31 July, 2021 at 3:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 6, 2020: Melbourne 12.8 (80) def Gold Coast 9.9 (63) at Giants Stadium.
Last 5 H2H: Melbourne 5 – Gold Coast 0
Gold Coast: Touk Miller is killing it as is the late season rookie sensation, Jeremy Sharp.
Melbourne: Are they the most Supercoach-relevant team in the AFL at the moment? Gawn, Oliver, Petracca and Stevie May are in multiple ‘fully-premo’ SC squads.
Match Preview: The Demons finally lost a game to a top 8 side last week and they find themselves in poor form at the wrong time of year. This match should be a simple victory for them, but Melbourne are erratic against weaker teams and the Suns are no longer easy beats. The Gold Coast has pushed several good sides and is finally showing some consistent form. If the Demon’s don’t show up this afternoon, they could drop yet another game to a team outside the top 8.
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 12 points. (Tipping record: 30.5/55)

Gawn against Zac Smith, might go 150+.
Or Jackson gets more of a run in the ruck due to the opposition.
Satan, Racca, Gawn, Miller and Lukosius for me here.
Worst case scenario: Flanders clamps down on Satan, Harmes clamps down on Miller, Gawn gets second fiddled by Jackson, Racca butchers it all day and Lukosius just disappears.
Best case scenario: Satan and Miller are free, Gawn has a 3:1 ruck split and devours Z. Smith, Racca actually kicks straight and Lukosius finds 25+.
Here we go.
Hi all, a technical query. If I have two emergencies in the one line, one plays and the other doesn’t, which one gets activated to be on field? Do I get the scoring one, or does the non-playing one count as a zero and therefore the lowest scorer?
only the scoring one
Thank you both, with any luck medi sub Jordan gets activated early. (Feels very disingenuous to wish for an injury though)
You get the scoring one….if both play you get the lowest score.
Clarry, time to pull out another double ton to keep my season alive !!!
Geez I was stuck on bont or Miller all week and Miller is more than half of bonts score and it’s not even quarter time!
Feel your pain mate, I went the ultimate upgrade to beat a mate in our cashy… Cripps to Bont! Then watched Cripps outscore him 🙁
Miller been getting favourable CD scoring all year … he was the one to pick if you had trades left … so too Bont I guess, though with Dunkley back I think it impacts Bont … and all the doggies scores … not as much need for Bont to be in middle with Dunks there … can be released with more forward time
Hey, Macca. Hope you’ve been well.
Have to completely disagree on Miller though.
He’s been done in by CD in recent weeks. I watch his games and touches closely.
Backed up by Jack’s Scoring Anomalies each week.
Howdy. Going OK GD.
Have to agree to disagree – the games I watched and scored him (admittedly going back a few weeks now – and perhaps scorers or different scorers tighter on him lately?), he was awarded very generous stats of CP’s & effective kicks / possessions and even some tackles …
Remember – it’s not the stats as recorded on a page that is key … it’s whether the player actually earnt the stats or not and how CD scored them … the key words are “CD favourite…” … Parish was getting similar and Bont always does …
Anyways, as I said many weeks ago on him, well done to those, including yourself that got on him early … he’s a key pick up! (not my TD on you either mate!)
Nice start Clarry. It will be a fail if you don’t double ton son. I’m relying on you. Track…good effort so far.
Cmon Clarry…big finish….you can double ton son.
Terrible second half Clarry…..20 400’s at training on Tuesday !!!
geez Wighty 160 is pretty darn good!
Come on Gold Coast, have a dip! Need you to start bombing it forward so May can get me over the line…
