THE TEAM NEWS

GOLD COAST SUNS

  • Gold Coast Suns were able to avoid a third consecutive loss as they overcame Sydney Swans last week which saw them improve to 4-3 for the season and another win here against Western Bulldogs would put them in a solid position thru Round 8.
  • The Suns got off to a strong start and did not look back as they came out on top in all four quarters of the contest with the Swans which resulted in them coming away with a 60-92 success.
  • After such a solid performance, the Suns have opted to retain the same line-up for this clash with the Bulldogs and they will be confident of making it back-to-back victories against their opponents in this one.

WESTERN BULLDOGS

  • Western Bulldogs were under pressure to perform after a very poor performance against Carlton and they responded to that heavy loss by producing a solid showing to defeat Essendon last week.
  • The Bulldogs have now won four of their last five matches with the win over the Bombers and it was a superb performance just after the half that sealed the win as they built on their 13-point half-time advantage.
  • They dominated the third period and won that 3-33 to open up a huge lead on their way to victory but there are two changes to this week’s side with Bailey Dale out injured while Lachie Hunter is managed with Billy Gowers coming in along with debutant Callum Porter.

THE PREDICTION

Gold Coast Suns and Western Bulldogs go head-to-head in an intriguing contest between two teams that sit on a 4-3 record as the pair chase a spot in the finals. The Suns defeated Sydney Swans last week while the Bulldogs were too good for Essendon and the pair will be desperate to build on their respective successful outings. Both teams are capable of the win but the Suns have won their last three games on home soil and they can make it four in a row in this one.
