Footy is back! The AFL have kindly given us a 3-day break to reacquaint ourselves with our families and loved ones before jamming even more into our eyeballs next month
Gold Coast and Carlton will kick off the Sir Douglas Nicholls round tonight however the AFL still won’t give us full squads for the weekend, so we’ll just have to make do.
Not a lot of SuperCoach relevancy in this one. David Swallow returns for game 150 in one of three changes for the Suns. Brayden Fiorini has again lost his spot along with Alex Sexton and Nick Holman. At the Blues, Josh Honey only ahem… stuck around for one week. Jack Martin makes his return and Marc Pittonet is back to help Tom De Koning in the ruck.
Vice Captain Options
Patrick Cripps is the obvious choice here scoring 169 in round 4 when these two teams met last year and 173 in round 19, 2018. Gold Coast however haven’t let midfielders off the hook as much so far this year and Crippa hasn’t been his usual high scoring self in 2020. Carlton have given up some easy points to forwards in recent times, though there’s no one at the Suns to take advantage of this.
You might be better served holding your VC until tomorrow.
