Gold Coast 3 v Wellington 1

Wellington will be dirty. They had a fair goal disallowed. But if that one goes in they probably don't get the penalty.

Jason Culina was amazing. His energy won this game for Gold Coast. It is also amazing that Gold Coast could win over Bruce Djite (2 great great tonight including a back heel) just as they lost Shame Smeltz.

Just as amazing is Wellington's ability to pick Australians at the expense of their locals. Jade North appears not to be the answer in their defence, where'd he go? And then Olyroo Mirian Pavlovic is their youth contributor. Will Wellington pay the price for not giving fair game time to Kosta Barbarouses? Other teams seem to be able to regularly pick and play an emerging local talent, why not Wellington? Did Kosta fall out with Herbert?

Where was Manny Muscat's card?
