What Gold Coast must achieve in 2021 according to Dal Santo


Nick Dal Santo hopes we see a more consistent Gold Coast side in 2021.

The Suns started 2020 in hot form, winning four early games before falling part and finishing the year with five wins.

Dal Santo believes a key part of this is working out their game style and identity.

“They need to cement their game-plan. Stuart Dew has been there for a period of time and enough time now for them to have an identity about how they play their football,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“They’re fast, they’re attractive to watch, but it’s not consistent.

“I like their style of play, but do it more often and cement that. Have trust that when you go out every weekend the opposition have to do analysis on exactly how you play.

“We know how the Tiges play. We know how Geelong plays. They need to cement who they are offensively and defensively and probably around stoppages to get that real consistency.”

The Suns take on Brisbane and the Bulldogs in the AAMI Community Series before travelling to Perth to take on West Coast in Round 1.
