MANY commentators have said that the Suns will not win a game in 2019, but strange things happen in football. Remember Round 18 last year? Gold Coast played an in-form Sydney at the SCG and overcame a 29-point quartertime deficit to score a 24-point win despite being a $14 outsider with the bookmakers before the game. It goes to show that attitude is often more important than talent, and that victory will surely be in the back of the minds of Gold Coast players entering next season. on-field prospects. The Suns lost their first game in Shanghai by 72 points in 2017 and went on to suffer a 40point loss to the Power at the same venue last season. The next game after the China trip hasn’t been pretty. The Suns lost heavily both times, including to Geelong by 85 points this year. However, the club has dumped the Shanghai game for 2019, giving it one less thing to worry about.
