Australian Football League Live Carlton Blues vs Gold Coast Suns Stream AFL 2015 Seasons Week 13 math will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Sunday 28 June 2015 online, 15.20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Carlton Blues are riding high after beating Port Adelaide last weekend whilst the Suns will be buoyed by a competitive effort against Fremantle and a host of key inclusions.
The Blues will need to find a replacement for Bryce Gibbs (suspended) whilst Michael Jamison has put his hand up for a recall via the VFL. For the Suns, David Swallow, Steve May, Harley Bennell whilst the great man, Gary Ablett will have to wait another week. Whilst Rory Thompson and Sam Day are also a chance. They are still missing key midfielders Jack Martin, Jaeger O’Meara and Dion Prestia from their best 22.
Battle of two sides who have three combined wins. The Blues have two wins from 11 games though have covered the line in all of their games under John Barker. They rank 16th for points scored but have conceded the most points in the league. They have a 2-4 (4-2 against the line) record against bottom ten teams. The Suns are stone motherless last with just one win to their name. They are last in points scored but 14th in most points against this season. They are 1-3 (2-2 against the line) vs bottom-ten teams this year but have not played a non-finals team for the last six weeks.
The Blues are 3-1 both head to head and against the line vs Gold Coast. Carlton is 20-26 (21-25 against the line) at Etihad Stadium since 2010. The Blues are 5-5 (6-4 against the line) at the venue in 2014-15. The Suns are 5-19 (13-11 against the line) away from Metricon Stadium in the last three seasons – including 3-10 (6-7 against the line) in the last two years. Gold Coast has a 2-8 (5-6 at the line) record at Etihad Stadium but went 2-2 (3-1 against the line) under the roof in 2014 (this is their first game there this year). Three of their four match-ups have totalled over 183 points. All six games in round 12 went over the total game score. Carlton is 1-2 (but 3-0 against the line) when coached by John Barker.
The Suns are a legitimate chance to win their second game of the year. Though the Blues have played with greater effort and intensity under John Barker, the wheels have started to turn for the Suns too as shown by their pre-bye effort in the wet against the Dockers. They are starting to get their spine back together whilst a lack of experienced key defenders does not matter as much against the Blues. The Blues are likely to have a bit of a let-down after the emotion-charged win over Port Adelaide last weekend. Anticpate it to be fast paced and high scoring with the Suns a genuine chance to upset Carlton.
