Where and when: Docklands Stadium, 4:35pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R8 2020: Gold Coast 6.10 (46) DEF BY Bulldogs 7.9 (51) at Metricon.
The match was an arm-wrestle all night, with the Bulldogs leading by two points at quarter, half and three-quarter time. Third-game whiz-kid Izak Rankine had a chance to level the scores late in the match but his around-the-corner set shot from the left forward pocket missed on the near side. Caleb Daniel (25 disposals) was terrific in the dry and then the rain, using the ball expertly, while Jack Macrae (29) and Bailey Smith (22) were also prominent. For Gold Coast, Jarrod Witts led from the front, outplaying boom young ruckman Tim English, while Touk Miller (28 touches) and Alex Sexton (three goals) were big contributors.
