Gary Ablett: Gold Coast Suns confident of retaining star midfielder despite exit rumours
Brisbane Lions legend Jonathan Brown slams Etihad Stadium following Michael Close injury
Not many would have predicted the Cats and Suns to be searching for their first win in this round three clash at Simonds Stadium.
Both sides have been severely disappointing in the opening two rounds of the season, with Gold Coast suffering losses to 2014 strugglers Melbourne and St Kilda.
The Cats on the other hand have lost to quality opposition in Hawthorn and Fremantle, but there’s no doubt coach Chris Scott will have been livid with both defeats.
Gold Coast will be without influential skipper Gary Ablett for this one, and there’s no doubt that the Cats are the clear favourites despite their 0-2 start to the season.
Geelong welcomes back Jimmy Bartel into the fold, but Andrew Mackie will miss with a quad injury.
Make sure you tune in!
