Game notes: The premiers will head to Cairns with anything but a holiday on their minds, with a win over the struggling Suns a must if they’re to keep their faltering flag defence alive. Last week’s win over a gritty Carlton side wasn’t convincing, but the Dogs did produce a far more consistent performance than they have in previous weeks. If they are to make it back to September, they’ll need to start kicking bigger scores, with inefficiency up forward plaguing them this season. A Suns backline missing Steven May (hamstring) will make it easier to boost their poor percentage, but the Dogs will be missing forward Jake Stringer with a similar injury. The Suns on the other hand will be looking to record their first win over the Bulldogs in North Queensland, after losing all three matches between the sides at Cazaly’s Stadium.
Thommo’s Tip: Dogs by 20 points.
