Damien Hardwick has copped the full Gold Coast experience in a wildly fluctuating win against former club Richmond to begin his Suns era. The Suns’ 14.15 to 9.6 victory in front of a full house at home on Saturday was far from regulation — Gold Coast up by 67 points but facing anxious moments when the under-manned visitors reduced the gap to 23. An off-the-ball 50-metre penalty and a controversial deliberate call on Nathan Broad created final-quarter Suns goals.

A cardboard cutout of the injured Martin, in a Suns guernsey in the stands, could only look on. His teammates on the ground weren’t much more useful as the Suns built a 67-point lead. Hardwick’s men racked up an incredible 11 consecutive majors in an opening half that seemed too good to be true. And when it seems like that, it usually is. The Tigers’ second goal just shy of halftime made it a 61-point margin - a Suns club record - but stopped the rot and set the scene for the Tigers’ reply.
