    A golden opportunity presents itself for either the Gold Coast Suns or Carlton Blues to catapult themselves back into finals race. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 7:25pm (AEST).

    It’s been another up and down season for Gold Coast in 2017, but despite sporting an ordinary record of 5-6, this year’s wide-open competition means they’re still a great chance of featuring in September.

    After dispiriting heavy losses to Port Adelaide and Melbourne on either side of their bye, the Suns have turned it around in the last fortnight.

    After stunning the football world with a monumental upset of West Coast two weeks ago, Rodney Eade’s side backed their performance up with a gutsy 16-point victory over Hawthorn at the MCG last week.

    Gold Coast won’t be able to rely on their percentage to help them into the eight, so winning the winnable games will be a must as they head for the second half of the year.

    Finals may not be as in reach for Carlton, but after some encouraging strides over the first half of the season they’ll be thinking anything’s possible.

    They may be sitting in 16th on the ladder, but they find themselves just two wins outside of the eight.

    Last week the Blues pulled off one of the upsets of the season, edging the heavily-favoured GWS Giants by a solitary point in arguably their most encouraging victory in the Brendan Bolton era.

    With a win over Sydney already under their belt in 2017, Carlton are shaking off the easybeat tag very quickly.

    Gold Coast’s first ever game was against Carlton back in 2011, with the Blues easily prevailing by 119 points. Since then the clubs have played six times, winning three games each.

    Both sides are making strides in 2017 and will likely look back on this year as a springboard to their future success.

    This should be an intriguing clash, but with a win over Carlton earlier this year and the home crowd behind them, Gold Coast should prevail again.

    Suns by 19 points

      Bryce Gibbs was enormous tonight. Value going up by the week.
      Crowds need to come up with a fair bit, if they want to prise him away.
      He could easily be the missing link for a Crows flag.
      All things considered, I hope he stays
      Go Blues

      3 VOTES – Bryce Gibbs (CAR) – Unquestionably the best on ground. Racked up 43 disposals, 10 tackles, seven clearances, seven inside 50s and two last quarter goals. Wow.

      2 VOTES – Sam Docherty (CAR) – Gold Coast found him impenetrable at half back – especially in the first quarter – collecting 30 disposals at an absurd 96.7% effectiveness, nine marks, nine tackles and seven one-percenters.

      1 VOTE – Kade Simpson (CAR) – Stood up in the last quarter down back when the Blues needed him. 33 disposals at 81.8% effectiveness and 15 marks in a spirited performance from the veteran.

      Carlton survive an almighty scare, forfeiting a 29-point lead at one stage to emerge 10-point victors over Gold Coast in a thriller at Metricon Stadium.

      That probably puts a line through Gold Coast’s finals hopes for 2017, while Carlton inch closer to escaping the bottom four.

      GC – 11.7 (73)
      CAR – 12.11 (83)

      Well done blues, a few more pre seasons and astute trading &drafting will see you competing hard as your young fellas mature.

      Liam Jones gets two more spoils in on Tom Lynch to cap off a superb evening, although this time Peter Wright is able to gather off the deck and snap home a consolation goal.

      Bryce Gibbs with yet another disposal and this time it’s a perfect kick to the advantage of Jed Lamb in the one-on-one with Adam Saad at full forward.

      Kicking from 20 metres out, directly in front – he puts it through and almost certainly gets Carlton home safe.

      Sam Docherty mops up the ball after Alex Sexton overruns it on the wing and that could just about be it.

      Docherty has been superb all night for Carlton, especially during their dominant third quarter.

      Carlton’s experienced heads are helping them prevail in defence.

      Gold Coast have had the last few inside 50s, but Kade Simpson has spearheaded the resistance.
