The Suns are in the 8, ahead of the Dockers and Blues on percentage with one of their better scoring seasons since their inception into the league. A massive win over the Cats last weekend will give them confidence coming into this clash with Carlton who copped a lashing against Sydney last weekend.

Both of these teams are top of the league in Centre Clearances with the Suns also top of the rankings in Inside 50’s, Metres Gained, Intercept Possessions/Marks as well as 5th in Scoring Accuracy. It is these metrics together with the predictive modelling that give strength to the Suns covering the line.

  • Gold Coast average 58.6 Inside 50’s per game, 1st in the AFL
  • The Suns restrict their opponents to 196.9 Uncontested Possessions per game, the 2nd best team in the league
  • Carlton give up 12.9 Centre Clearances to their opposition per game, 4th worst in the AFL
  • Gold Coast Turn the ball over at the highest rate in the league giving up 72.8 TO’s per game

Carlton were brought back down to earth last weekend against the Swans going down by 52 points, their biggest of the season so far and largest losing margin since 118-62 loss to Adelaide in round 5 last year.

The Blues got out to an early lead against Sydney but were eaten up in the 2nd quarter with their opposition running away with the game in the second half. The Blues had a rough day in their forward line reaching only 40.8% Efficiency Inside 50.

Carlton Team News

No relief for the Blues with the injury list continuing to grow. Marc Pittonet is the latest casualty with a finger injury ruling him out of this one. Jacob Weitering picked up a cork last weekend and will need to show he can play through the pain to be selected. 

In a bit of good news Lachie Fogarty, Sam Durdin, Jesse Motlop and Adam Saad may all make their returns if they can pass fitness tests.

Well what can we say about the Suns, two weeks in a row they have won their games by over 60 points with the most recent win against the Cats maybe their biggest win against a top team ever. It is also the first time since the middle of 2022 where they have won back to back games scoring over 100 points.

The Suns are undoubtedly a different team this year both in attack and defence they also lead the league in Inside 50’s and are 2nd behind Carlton in Centre Clearances.

Gold Coast Team News

No new major injury news for the Suns who expect to get Malcolm Rosas jnr back next week ahead of his original timeline.
