Gold Coast Suns vs Richmond Tigers Preview

The total points tide is turning. We saw plenty of high scoring games to start the season with the average score of 85.6 per team for the first three rounds, but the last three rounds has seen a big decline with teams averaging 73.2.

Round 15 was the lowest scoring round of the season with an average score of 70.5 per team, and Gold Coast play in the lowest scoring games in the competition this season. The average total score in Suns games this season is 146.9 per game, ranked 17th for points scored and 7th for points against.

From the Suns last nine games, only twice has the total game score gone over 161.5 – the average total points score over this span at 143.9 per game.

Richmond have been a high scoring team of late – didn’t that just change last round scoring just 22 points against the Saints. This will not happen again, but despite how bad the Suns are they’ve down a reasonable job down back this year.

Expect the Tigers to turn on the heat after a dismal effort last week, with Gold Coast struggling to kick a score resulting in the total points well unders.
