Game Review

The Blues would score their second win in a row by defeating the Suns by 10 points at Metricon Stadium, reversing the home loss to Gold Coast earlier in the year. In this thrilling game, the Blues were up by almost 5 goals early in the third before some brain fades and good Suns pressure saw them back in the game and lead in the last.... but we came through in the end.

In the post game wash-up Bryce Gibbs was called out for his outstanding game by the Coach - 43 stats, 10 tackles and 2 clutch goals in the last. What a star!

Interesting Fact: This would be our last win for 9 weeks....
Interesting Fact: This would be the last time we would win two in a row until 2019!. In 2017, we would do this twice in our 6 wins, but I don't think we knew how barren we would be for the next 24 months.... well, until the Club took a change in direction....
