Melbourne Demons vs Gold Coast Suns Preview

The Dees and the Suns in Western Sydney, you simply love to see it.

To put it bluntly, Melbourne is terrible.

They had more inside 50s and clearances than Richmond last weekend, yet still were convincingly beaten by the Tigers playing them back into form.

Stats like these have increasingly become the norm for them.

Melbourne can’t even tank like the good old days because they traded their first-round draft pick for this year.

As for the Gold Coast Suns, everyone is feeling the season-ending shoulder injury at the expense of Matt Rowell.

2020 struck yet again reminding us we can’t have nice things like Matt Rowell, who actually gave us a reason to smile and enjoy footy in an otherwise bleak climate.

Some have written the Suns off thinking no Rowell, no Gold Coast but that is foolish.

The Suns were competitive all day against the Cats last weekend and found themselves in front at one stage in the second half.

They have easily accounted for other contenders for the Wooden Spoon in the Crows and Freo and were simply outstanding when they faced West Coast.

Melbourne is in the mix for the wooden spoon, the Gold Coast Suns are not.

I expect the Suns to be 4-2 at the end of this weekend and still very much in the mix.
