The Suns enjoyed a week off in round nine and it came at a great time, considering their huge loss to the Power in China. Melbourne on the other hand couldn’t get over the line against North Melbourne, in what was a disappointing loss for their fans, but a thrilling, fiery encounter for the neutral.

Gold Coast are one of the most confusing teams in the competition, at times they look like a potential finals side and at others they look as though they look amateurish.

This is a game the Demons have to win, and if they don’t, the faith of their followers will begin to peter out. They should claim the victory, but hopefully the Suns make them work for it.
