THE TEAM NEWS

GEELONG CATS

  • Geelong Cats returned to winning ways with a narrow win over Melbourne last week but they will need to improve on that effort as they come up against a resurgent Gold Coast Suns outfit.
  • The Cats were involved in a real tussle with the Demons and despite trailing by a point at the half, a strong third quarter saw Geelong do enough to take a solid lead which they held on to until the end.
  • Although they earned the win last week, the Cats have suffered a couple of injury blows with Tom Atkins and Tom Stewart ruled out of this clash and their places are taken by Harry Taylor and Quinton Narkle.

GOLD COAST SUNS

  • Gold Coast Suns continued their brilliant start to the campaign as they made it three wins in a row with an impressive win against Fremantle last week with their effort in the final quarter seeing them earn the victory.
  • The scores were tied at the end of the third quarter but the Suns dominated 14-1 in the fourth quarter as they restricted the Dockers with the ball to seal another eye-catching four competition points.
  • The Suns are surpassing early-season expectations after last year’s horror show and they will believe they can make it four wins in a row having named an unchanged side from last week’s victory.

THE PREDICTION

Gold Coast Suns are one of the surprise packages at the start of this campaign and they will be going in search of their fourth win in a row as they travel to Geelong to take on the Cats. The hosts have been inconsistent at the start of this season with a 2-2 record and will need to improve on their showing in last week’s narrow win over Melbourne but they could find it tough going against the Suns who should be able to benefit from a +22.5 start.
