North Melbourne vs Gold Coast Suns Predictions


North Melbourne need a win to stand a chance of avoiding the wooden spoon again. Gold Coast Suns have ended the season in poor form, but they should have too many weapons for the Roos.

The Suns were 62-points winners over North earlier this year, and with the Roos hit by injuries I'm backing Gold Coast to cover the handicap.

  • North Melbourne have lost 18 of their last 19 matches.
  • North Melbourne have lost their last 4 matches by 29+ points.
  • Gold Coast Suns have won 3 of their last 4 matches against North Melbourne.
  • Gold Coast Suns beat North Melbourne by 62 points in Round 12.

Head to Head


North Melbourne and Gold Coast have claimed five wins each in the last 10 meetings.

The Suns won the last time they met in Round 12 this year as they recorded a 109-47 win in Darwin.

North Melbourne Form


North Melbourne slipped to a 19th defeat of the season last week when losing 103-74 away to Adelaide Crows.

It means the Roos need a win and for West Coast Eagles to lose if they are to avoid the wooden spoon once again.

The Roos have conceded 103+ points in their last four matches and continue to struggle defensively.

North Melbourne Team News


Jaidyn Stephenson, Jack Ziebell, Paul Curtis and Jackson Archer all miss the final game through injury.

Jed Anderson, meanwhile, is ruled out due to concussion protocols and Aaron Hall has been omitted.

Todd Goldstein has been passed fit to play. He is joined by five ins with Jack Mahony, Jason Horne-Francis, Aiden Bonar and Flynn Perez starting and Josh Goater debuting.

Gold Coast Suns Form


Gold Coast's hopes of playing finals footy for the first time were dashed by a run of just two wins in their last eight matches.

Last week, the Suns were no match for minor premiers Geelong Cats at home as they lost 119-59 in a largely one-side affair.

Alex Sexton and Hewago Oea come into the side as their replacements.

Verdict

Another nightmare season finally comes to an end for North Melbourne. I'm tipping they'll end with the wooden spoon. The Suns have had a poor last two months, but can sign off with a comfortable win.
