Buoyed by the recent appointment of triple-premiership manager Damien Hardwick, Gold Coast have a golden opportunity to equal the club’s best 10 wins of the season when they take on 18th-seeded North Melbourne, who could soon receive a hefty draft bounty.
The Kangaroos (2-20, 68.7%) are on a 20-game losing streak and would lose bottom of the AFL rankings, earning them a Pick 1. There’s also a chance they could end up at Pick 2 – as compensation for the loss of free agent Ben McKay – while also being given exclusive access to Tasmanian midfielder Ryley Sanders, who is widely regarded as a top 10 contender according to most scouts .
The Suns (9-13, 93.0%) this week named Hardwick their coach for the next six years, but they will play their last game under interim coach Steven King, who is desperate to lead the Suns to a tenth win of the season, which is what the case would reach their record of 2022.
