Another Win for the Suns

Post by Beaussie »

Well done Suns. Good to see another victory and in front of a sellout crowd in Cairns. :thumbleft:
Gold Coast come from behind and win against Richmond in Cairns
AAP
From:Herald Sun
July 16, 20111:56PM

GOLD Coast have all but killed off Richmond's finals aspirations and won over AFL fans in north Queensland with an upset 15-point victory at Cazaly Stadium.

The Suns trailed by six goals at the first change, yet held their composure to rally for a stirring 12.13 (85) to 9.16 (70) win in front of a sell out 10,832 crowd.

Nice on suns, think i tipped em too. But 11000 is hardly a good crowd, they would have gotten more in Alice Springs.

Perhaps Cairns is League Heartland after all?

In 2004, an Australian Football League AFL Regional Challenge between Collingwood Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club attracted a sell-out crowd of 10,000.

So KE, the NT Government don't even know how much capacity their own stadium holds?
Traeger Park

Address - Speed Street, Alice Springs

Uses - AFL football, cricket, major events

Facilities - grandstand (capacity 10,000), lights, toilets, change rooms, canteen

Poor ole Richmond. I had such high hopes for them this year. They still don't have enough high quality players to match it with even the average teams. Maybe next year?

They promise so much every season. The only thing they seem to be consistent on is missing the finals. I feel sorry for Richmond fans.
