One of the most exciting clashes of the round takes place on Thursday night between the Gold Coast Suns and Western Bulldogs.

Two of the youngest and electric teams of the competition, playing fast footy looks set to be a highlight.

Both teams come into the match with a win under the belt and full of confidence, ready to play in what could very well be a high scoring match.

Gold Coast Form & Team News

Gold Coast were very good beating Sydney last week where they were pressured for the whole match, but their youth showed too much class for the Sydney midfield and backline.

Izak Rankine has been the star of the show since Rowell has been injured, bouncing into Rising Star favouritism after another super performance while Noah Anderson arguably played his best game for the season last week.

With the likes of Sam Flanders still waiting in the wings to play, this side has the sky as the limit this year.

Bulldogs Form & Team News

At their best, they are the best side in the competition, but at their worst, they could not beat Adelaide.

You never know which Bulldogs side you are going to get, but they are seemingly playing their best against sides with a slower brand of footy (besides GWS).

The form they showed last week against Essendon was one of the best performances we saw all round, and that performance again would likely see them win again.

Gold Coast vs Bulldogs Match Up

The key match up for this game is between the two ruckmen, Tim English and Jarrod Witts.

Both are arguably in All Australian contention, with English domination last week and being one of the leading disposal getters on the ground.

Witts has shown the leadership needed this year and has been one of the senior players that has taken his side to where they are this season.

Whichever midfield is being fed the best from the ruckmen may be the winner of this match.
