Gold Coast SUNS beat GWS Giants 134-94

GOLD Coast has easily won the battle of the expansion clubs with a 40-point win over Greater Western Sydney at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

The GC SUNS were in control for most of the day, building a four-goal lead early and cruising home on a hot Gold Coast afternoon to finish 20.14 (134) to 13.16 (94) winners.

The victory cements their spot in the top eight with a 4-2 record ahead of next Sunday’s trip to Etihad Stadium to play in-form North Melbourne.


Gold Coast coach Guy McKenna was bubbling with excitement after the match about the contribution of his men in the middle.

“I think we’re understanding the ability to consistently compete,” McKenna said.
