Australian Football League (AFL) Live Gold Coast Suns vs Geelong Cats match will be kick off at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast,Saturday 21 june 2014 online, 16:40 AEDT and its broadcast on Fox Footy.
The Suns have the option of playing exciting youngster Jack Martin on his return from a shoulder injury whilst Guy McKenna could opt to include Jeremy Taylor, Clay Cameron, Jesse Lonergan or Sean Lemmens. There are some selection headaches at Geelong after their big win over St Kilda. Steve Johnson, Jared Rivers, Hamish McIntosh and Allen Christensen are arguably in their best 22 and ready to return.
After such a bright start, the Suns have dropped their last three games and are currently a game clear in eighth. They play Hawthorn and Collingwood after the Cats and will be desperate for at least one win there. Geelong thrashed St Kilda last week and have now won three of their last four to be in fourth (same points as Sydney and Hawthorn) – a confidence boosting win.
Geelong hosted the Suns in round 10 last year, and it was closer than the final margin suggested. The Cats ended up winning by 52-points but it was all-square at three quarter-time with their mature bodies and experience dragging them over the line. The game will be best remembered for Gary Ablett’s magical goal from the pocket that brought Geelong fans to their feet.
