The Gold Coast Suns fell 91-87 at the hands of the Carlton Blues as they tasted their third defeat in as many games. Will the bounce back and end with a win?

Head to Head

The Suns downed the Kangaroos 97-54 when the sides last met back in April, with this their third win in a row over North Melbourne and their seventh win in their last 10. North Melbourne have won the other three. 

North Melbourne Form

The North Melbourne Kangaroos have been awful this season, with 22 matches resulting in just two wins along with 20 defeats. 

Mercifully, the home and away season for the Kangaroos is almost over with the Roos one of the few sides looking towards next year already.

Can they get their first win since beating the Fremantle Dockers back in March?

Gold Coast Suns Form 

The Gold Coast Suns may have been beaten by Carlton last week, but they were on the cusp of a huge scalp as the Blues squeezed to a win. 

Despite this improved performance, the Suns slipped to their third defeat in a row last weekend. 

However, with six defeats in a row on the road the Suns' road woes are clear to see.

I am backing the Roos to finally end their losing run and finish their season on a high against a Gold Coast side that have really struggled on the road.
