Australian Football League Gold Coast Suns vs Brisbane Lions Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 22 AFL Live Stream. Gold Coast Suns vs Brisbane Lions match will be kickoff at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, Saturday 18 August 2018 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The two Queensland based sides have struggled in 2018, winning four games each. Brisbane are currently 16th on the ladder, just shading their local rivals, who are 17th.
The Lions have had the better form in recent times, winning three games in a row from Round’s 14 to 16 and while they have gone on to lose their next four, two of those were by under a goal.
The Suns have been largely dreadful since earlier in the season and have lost 14 of their past 15. Asides from a shock win over the Sydney Swans by 24 points in Round 18 they have been largely uncompetitive. Last weekend they went down by 74 point to Richmond
The Lions have been posted the $1.25 favourites for this and have a healthier list at this time of the season, with many of the Suns players succumbing to season ending injuries.
Look for Dayne Beams and Dayne Zorko to have an influence in the middle, while Harris Andrews and Luke Hodge should control proceedings in defence. Key players for the Suns include Touk Miller, Jarrod Harbrow and Jarrod Lyons but the issue for Gold Coast is likely to be their inability to kick a winning score.
The rank 17th in the competition for points for, while the Lions have fared better and are 11th in this area. They should have more run in the midfield, setting up the likes of Eric Hipwood up forward.
Gold Coast have a number of players that are done for the season and the latest casualties are Will Brodie and Pearce Hanley. Jack Srimshaw and Michael Barlow are among the possible inclusions.
Brisbane are likely to be without Darcy Gardiner after the big man dislocated his shoulder in the loss to Collingwood. Jack Frost and Ryan Lester are among those that could come in.
Brisbane have won nine of the 15 games between the two sides but Gold Coast took out the Round 5 this year by five points. Brisbane won the two ‘Q-clash’ encounters last year, scoring by 58 points at the GABBA in Round 21, while it was a two point margin to the Lions at Metricon Stadium in Round 1.
Brisbane are playing the better footy and their list is in a much healthier state than the depleted Gold Coast outfit.
