One of the most intriguing clashes of the round takes place on Thursday as the Gold Coast Suns and Western Bulldogs go head to head.

Both teams come into the match after a win and will be full of confidence, and set to contest what could very well be a high scoring match.

Gold Coast Suns Form & Team News

Gold Coast were very good beating Sydney last week. They were pressured for the whole match, but their youth showed too much class for the Sydney midfield and backline.

Izak Rankine has been the star of the show since Rowell has been injured, bouncing into Rising Star favouritism after another super performance. Noah Anderson arguably played his best game for the season last week.

With the likes of Sam Flanders still waiting in the wings to play, this side has the sky as the limit this year.

Western Bulldogs Form & Team News

The Bulldogs are among the best sides in the competition, but at their worst they have been incredibly bad. 

They could not beat a poor Adelaide side, and you never know which Bulldogs side you are going to get.

The form they showed last week against Essendon was one of the best performances we saw all round, and that performance again would likely see them win again.

Gold Coast Suns vs Western Bulldogs Match Up

The key match up for this game is between the two ruckmen, Tim English and Jarrod Witts.

Both are arguably in All Australian contention, with English dominate last week and being one of the leading disposal getters on the ground.

Witts has shown the leadership needed this year and has been one of the senior players that has taken his side to where they are this season.

Whichever midfield is being fed the best from the ruckmen may be the winner of this match.
