Ablett stars as Suns belted by 85 points
HISTORY repeated itself last night.
Gaz kicked a screamer from the pocket in another best on ground performance and the Suns produced a stinker.
Gold Coast owe their fans an apology after their longawaited return to their home ground ended in an 85-point trouncing, equalling the lowest score they have kicked at the venue.
There was also game-ending injuries to Aaron Hall (shoulder), Aaron Young and Steven May (ankle) to add another layer of pain for coach Stuart Dew.
You would think of all people, the Gold Coast players would be aware of what Gary Ablett was capable of, given any breathing space, but the lack of respect they showed the four-time best and fairest and the club’s only Brownlow medallist was staggering.
“Everyone should know who No.4 for Geelong is,’’ a clearly frustrated Dew said.
There was a buzz around the ground before the start of the game as local fans celebrated the return of footy to the Gold Coast.
By halftime, there was stunned silence after the Cats booted nine straight goals to end the contest.
