GAME DAY: Gold Coast v Carlton at Metricon Stadium | 3AW Radio
It was a gallant effort for most of the night from the Blues, however Gold Coast kicked away to a big win in the final term.
Aaron Hall (40 disposals) and Tom Lynch (4 goals) were dominant players for the Suns. It’s the first time Gold Coast have won the first three matches of a season.

At half time, the Suns lead by 14 points. Nathan Brown is impressed with what he has seen from Carlton though, saying they should probably in front.
‘The Blues intensity, effort and work rate was outstanding,’ he said.
Browny also spoke about the possibility of moving Jacob Weitering to the forward line to help out Levi Casboult.

‘Obviously haven’t done anything yet… I’m definitely extremely committed to it.
‘Hopefully it all turns out well and I’m on that field next year.’
