A disappointing day in Shanghai

Roger Vaughan, AAP  May 14, 2017 6:35 PM

Port Adelaide has reaped rich reward from its first China expedition, defeating Gold Coast by 72 points in Shanghai.

While the jury will be out for several years yet about whether the concept can work, the 16.14 (110) to 4.14 (38) win was a massive result on and off the field for the Power.

A week after an outstanding win over Geelong, and plenty of pre-match talk about the need for greater consistency, the SUNS had a shocker.

The first AFL match for premiership points outside of Australia and NZ happened because of Port's determination to build a presence in China.

After weeks of speculation about air quality and logistics, the game went off without any noticeable dramas.

The sold-out crowd of 10,118 featured a healthy contingent of locals among the fans who travelled from Australia, along with expats.

The temperature was in the high 20s and the air quality was no worse than a similar windy, hazy day in Sydney or Melbourne.

Indeed, the biggest drama happened on the field, a few minutes before the opening bounce.

Gold Coast defender Rory Thompson, who was returning from a quad muscle injury, hurt a hamstring during the warm-up.

Keegan Brooksby was called out of an official function to take Thompson's place in the side.

Michael Barlow gave the SUNS a good start when his scrambled kick was ruled a goal after a score review.

But Port quickly took control.

Jarrod Harbrow continued his strong form to be best for the SUNS on a disappionting day for the club.

 

GOLD COAST SUNS    1.1   3.5   4.9   4.14 (38)
