Footy in strange and exotic places continues with the GWS Giants hosting the Gold Coast Suns in Ballarat on Sunday, or Mars which sounds better.
Only the Gold Coast Suns have ever played in Ballarat before, when they lost to the Bulldogs by 9 points in Round 7, 2018.
Both GWS and Gold Coast will be up and about this week.
GWS are in the eight after beating the top-of-the-ladder Dees and the Gold Coast surprised everyone by defeating Richmond in arguably the club’s best ever win.
Most would expect the Giants to win this clash, however, it will be fascinating to see if the Suns can back it up after last week.
There’s been a fair bit of chat about the performance of Suns midfielder Touk Miller this week, who was outstanding against the Tigers with 36 disposals, 19 kicks, 16 handbells, and had he not been suspended earlier in the year, would be in the conversation for the Brownlow.
Averaging 30.6 disposals a game this season, Miller is one of the hottest players in the AFL and a must for same game mutlis.
The $2.50 on offer for Miller to have 35+ touches on Sunday is tempting, so tempting, I’m willing to back it outright.
