Gold Coast Quartet Bid Farewell

Harbrow Handballs Under Pressure

Gold Coast quartet Jack Hombsch, Jordan Murdoch, Jarrod Harbrow and Zac Smith have all announced their retirements. Hombsch and Murdoch played for the Suns for three seasons. Hombsch played just 18 games for the Suns after stints with GWS and Port Adelaide. Hombsch said, “It’s something that’s been in the works a little bit this season, but I feel pretty comfortable with the decision. Playing for three clubs I’m pretty grateful for because you just meet so many good people along the way ... I’ll certainly miss the footy club and I’ll miss playing AFL because it’s one of the best jobs going around.”

Murdoch started with Geelong before joining Gold Coast and played 110 games across 10 seasons. Murdoch said, “I feel I’m ready to begin the next step in my life. My wife Emma has followed me for 10 years and I think it’s time I take a back seat and let her follow her dreams. She’s been right there and incredible support for me throughout my career ... My highlights have been to see the development of the young guys at the club and chip in with bits and pieces that I’ve learned along the way and just try to help them.”

Suns Shine In War of Attrition

With positions tight for a Top Eight finish, a Gold Coast win would set them up with a real chance to play Finals for the first time in their short history, while Collingwood was looking to consolidate a Top Eight spot and possibly challenge those in the Top Four.

Fremantle Too Good For Suns

Ablett In The Rain

Rick Browner reporting from Perth for AFANA

It was a pity that the only rain Perth had seen for many months happened to fall at the start of what could have been a closely fought contest had it been played in dry conditions. Rain bucketed down as the ball was bounced and turned the match into a scrambling and largely uninteresting display. The Gold Coast Suns were nothing if not determined to take the game right up to the Fremantle Dockers. Their fearless attack and swarming defense had the Dockers on the back foot in the opening stages. With the first two goals on the board for the Suns, they were off to a fast start.
Dockers Triumph
Fremantle eventually settled and - with the help of two unnecessary, undisciplined and ultimately costly 50 meter penalties - slotted the next four goals to start stamping some authority on the match.
