Greater Western Sydney have recorded their biggest AFL winning margin to continue Gold Coast's woes with a 91-point home thrashing of the Suns.

Forward Jeremy Cameron has equalled his club record of seven goals, a mark he has achieved on four occasions, with the Giants strolling to a 22.17 (149) to 9.4 (58) victory.

The Giants controlled the game from the outset, scoring the first 20 points and kicking seven of the first eight goals.


It was the fourth time in their past five games the potent Giants had scored more than 125 points.

They face a series of potentially far-tougher fixtures against other finals aspirants, the Western Bulldogs, Adelaide, Geelong and Sydney.

Injury plagued Gold Coast slumped to a fifth-straight loss and their third in a row by more than 70 points.

GWS led by 21, 39 and 66 points at the three breaks.

Cameron's big haul was supplemented by three-goal efforts from Rhys Palmer and Rory Lobb.

Midfielder Jacob Hopper made an impressive debut for GWS, tallying 31 touches.

Brandon Matera and Jarrad Grant each kicked three goals for the Suns and Tom Lynch two, with Aaron Hall tallying 32 touches.
