FULL TIME

Geelong has kicked away to an 85-point win.

The Suns have three injury concerns out of the match: Aaron Hall (shoulder), Aaron Young (ankle), and Steven May (ankle).

Gary Ablett was named best afield by Tony Shaw for a 37-disposal game.

Ablett did it all over the ground, as evidence by having both five inside 50s and five rebound 50s.

=====

HALF TIME

Geelong is blitzing Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium.

The Cats booted 7.6 to just one behind in the second quarter to open up a nine-goal lead.

Gold Coast CEO Mark Evans said the quarter wasn’t good enough.

“We’ve been really poor coming out of defence,” Evans said.

“We get some things right, but you can see the young team has more to do.

“What you like to see from a team, regardless of what’s happening, is a real fight. That will be what Stuart Dew will be most disappointed with.”

THE BUILD-UP

The Suns FINALLY return to Metricon Stadium after it was unavailable due to the Commonwealth Games.

And as the Suns return, so too does their former captain Gary Ablett.

Can the Suns make it an unhappy return? Or will the Cats claim the first win at Metricon in 2018?
