AFL Live Melbourne Demons vs Gold Coast Suns Live Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 20 match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Sunday 05 August 2018 online, 15:20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
North Melbourne find themselves outside the eight, looking in, after their 17-point loss against Essendon at Etihad Stadium. Although the Kangaroos didn’t come away with the four points, it was a terrific brand of football to watch, with an incredible 13 goals scored in the first quarter.
The Kangaroos got off to a flyer, with early goals from Ben Cunnington, Mason Wood, Jack Ziebell and Nathan Hrovat, the Roos quickly established a 20-point first-quarter lead. That lead quickly evaporated, with the speed of the Bombers on full display. The Bombers kicked seven goals in the second quarter to back up their six goals in the opening term and never looked back.
Despite this loss, the Kangaroos have won four of their last six matches and cannot be displeased with the position they sit in, with eight rounds to go. The Roos face Sydney, Collingwood and West Coast in the three rounds after this, making a victory against the Gold Coast Suns absolutely necessary.
The Gold Coast Suns are officially in crisis mode. The Suns have lost their last nine matches and have failed to score over 60 points in five of those nine matches. Star forward Tom Lynch is almost certainly out the door at seasons end, while key defender Steven May could well follow him.
The Suns have lost their last nine matches by an average of 50.3 points per game and I don’t see things improving when they take on a North Melbourne side who is desperate for a victory to boost their finals chances.
Jarrad Waite continues to be a To Be Confirmed (TBC) after being a late out against the Brisbane Lions in round 11. He then re-aggravated the calf injury at training a fortnight ago. Mason Wood is still 3-4 weeks away from returning from his hamstring injury.
After the rumours that star forward Tom Lynch is almost certainly out the door, key defender Steven May is also uncertain about his future. May has a tweaked ankle is listed as a ‘test’ for this week’s clash against the Kangaroos.
