Gold Coast vs Sydney Preview

The Suns are still searching for their second win of the season after being humbled last time out by the Bulldogs.

Gold Coast’s 62-point loss saw them drop to 15th on the ladder. They will desperately want to win this one with a tough month ahead of them. They face Collingwood, St Kilda, Brisbane and Geelong.

Stuart Dew’s side has had some trouble scoring so far this season, with three of their five matches this season falling below 60 points. Saturday will be a chance for their versatile forward line to kick a winning score.

Meanwhile, the Swans fell to a heartbreaking two-point defeat against cross-town rivals GWS despite being favourites.

The narrow loss against the Giants meant it was their first loss of the season, but they can consider themselves lucky to lose by that margin despite having seven fewer scoring shots.

Although the Swans have kicked over 100 points in three of their games this season, you can expect a low scoring match. They’ve kicked 83 and 69 points in the previous two weeks, and with injuries to their top two goal scorers, they need to share the load.

Although they are playing at Metricon Stadium, I believe the young Swans outfit will bounce back after last week’s loss.

Suns vs Swans Team News

The Suns didn’t add to their injury list against the Dogs, but a poor performance could see Stuart Dew make a couple of changes.

The Swans will be forced to make two changes with ruckman Tom Hickey and star forward Lance Franklin suffering injuries against the Giants.

The two sides last met in Round 7 last season which saw the Suns win by 32 points.
