An interesting encounter awaits us on Saturday night from the Gold Coast where the surprising Suns host the Dockers at Metricon Stadium.

The Suns currently sit inside the top-four and after crushing the Crows last Sunday, will be considering themselves as a genuine finals hope. The Dockers are yet to register a win in 2020 but two defeats by under two goals or less suggest they are no easy beats.

Gold Coast Form & Team News

Tipped by many to be finishing at the bottom of the ladder in 2020, the Suns shocked the competition by defeating one of the premiership fancies in West Coast before destroying the Crows last week. The Suns currently occupy third position on the ladder and another win would have the team confident of its first ever finals berth.

They arrive here with no changes from last week's 22.

B: C.Budarick, S.Collins, J.Lukosius
HB: P.Hanley, C.Ballard, J.Harbrow

Gold Coast vs Fremantle Head To Head

The last time these teams met was in tound two last year where the Gold Coast Suns recored a three point victory over the Dockers.

The Dockers had the better of the Suns in their prior two clashes and lead the Suns 7-3 from their last 10 games.

Three of those victories for Fremantle have come at Metricon Stadium and after spending now extended period of time in the Queensland hub, the ground and conditions shouldn't hold any fears.

Gold Coast vs Fremantle Match Up

Gold Coast are the deserving favourites heading into this clash but as 2020 as taught us, expect the unexpected, especially with this AFL Season which continues to be unpredictable.

The Fremantle's attack hasn't been able to fire where they've averaged just the eight goals per game this season, however, with established A Graders in Jesse Hogan and Michael Walters still roaming in that forward half, we feel it's only a matter of time before that clicks to complement a defense and midfield that is holding up okay.

They'll be looking to quell an entertaining style of play that the Suns bring who have strong top-tier talent throughout their line-up but completing a hat-trick against a safer Dockers will be a little tougher and Fremantle will be eager to leave the hub with a win to their name.

Dockers superstar Nat Fyfe's influence on the game will be a key and without a logical match-up for him in the Suns 22, he'll be setting himself for a big match on Saturday night.


Gold Coast vs Fremantle Key Stats

  • Nat Fyfe has netted four 31+ disposal games in his last five clashes against the Suns
  • David Swallow has accrued 20 or more disposals in all of his last four outings against the Dockers
  • Travis Colyer has kicked the first goal in Fremantle's last two fixtures at Metricon Stadium
