Mark Thompson looks set to reunite with Gary Ablett, with the Premiership coach the $1.50 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to take over the reins at the Gold Coast Suns.
It’s Thompson then daylight as far as the betting is concerned, with Scott Burns given the next best chance at $8.00 ahead of Leigh Tudor ($9.00), Brendan Bolton ($12) and Stuart Dew ($12).
“Thompson is the most credentialed coach available at the moment. The Suns look on the verge of finals footy so if any team was going to appeal to Bomber, it would be Gold Coast,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
