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.
