Gold Coast Suns vs Carlton Blues match will be kickoff at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, Saturday 28 July 2018 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Carlton faced a tough assignment in their first game of the season, taking on the premiers, Richmond, in the traditional season opener at the MCG.
The Blues held their own for much of the game before fading in the last quarter, going down by 26 points. Charlie Curnow booted five goals, while Patrick Cripps played a blinder in the middle, registering 36 disposals.
Their opponents in Round 2, Gold Coast, come off a win under their new coach Stuart Dew. In extremely wet and soggy conditions, the Suns toughed it out to win by 16 points in a low scoring game over North Melbourne. Jack Bowes and Jarryd Lyons were a couple of the key contributors.
Despite their efforts, the Suns head in as underdogs for the Round 2 clash but they may be the value in the betting. Under Dew, they are unbeaten so far in 2018- if you take into account the JLT Series in which they won both of their games. In 2017, both sides won six of their 22 matches across the season.
Carlton hold the favouritism tag on the back of the home ground advantage, while the school of thought is that their younger players are more advanced than their Suns counterparts at the moment and their list is more rounded.
Brendan Bolton’s side have the added benefit of having a couple of their veterans in form including Marc Murphy and Kade Simpson and do look to have more depth.
Tom Lynch and Steven May are a couple of players that can influence the game for the Suns. Lynch was unable to boot a goal last weekend but should find the conditions a lot more conducive this weekend. He booted seven against Carlton at this venue last year.
Matthew Kennedy and Matthew Kreuzer are in doubt for Carlton after pulling up with issues out of the Richmond game. Nick Graham, David Cunningham and Sam Kerridge are among those with good form in the VFL. Aaron Hall is a possible inclusion for the Suns
Little has separated the two sides in recent years and the overall win-loss record since Gold Coast entered the league in 2011 is split at four wins apiece.
Last year, Carlton prevailed by 10 points at Metricon Stadium in Round 13, however, the Suns took out the Round 4 encounter at Etihad Stadium by 26. The Blues have won two of the three encounters between the two sides at the venue.
