GWS vs Gold Coast Preview


The Giants downed the top of the table Demons by nine points in a thriller at the MCG last time out.

GWS blew an opportunity to enter the top eight against the Hawks two weeks ago but didn’t need to be asked twice when the Tigers slipped up against Gold Coast.

They were able to get on top in the midfield against the ladder leaders, which they struggled with in the first half of the season. A positive result on Sunday will put them in the box seat to finish inside the eight for the first time since 2019.

Similarly, the Suns pulled off one of the upsets of the season, defeating the reigning premiers by 10 points.

Gold Coast outworked Richmond at almost every contest throughout the match, with their pressure leading into uncharacteristic Tiger turnovers. It was their ability the control the game which was most impressive taking 63 more marks than Tigers.

Touk Miller has been a revelation for the Suns so far in this campaign and currently sits fourth in the AFL Coaches Association votes.

Stuart Dew’s side will be keen to finally get a win over the Giants and will do so full of confidence that they can break that nine-match losing streak after their big scalp last week.

Although the Suns were able to pull off a major upset last time out, I don’t see them repeating that this week against an impressive Giants outfit.
