AFL 2015 Training - Gold Coast 171215

A mix of old and new have shone for the SUNS so far, with small defender Sean Lemmens particularly impressive. Lightly built, Lemmens is stronger right through his body and much more difficult to push off the ball in contested situations.

Second year housemates Touk Miller, whose thirst for work is hard to top, and Peter Wright, have been standouts. Wright is noticeably stronger and already keeping his feet better than his first year.

Captain Gary Ablett has done a power of training and shown no side effects from the knee and shoulder injuries that curtailed his 2015, while Nick Malceski has been uninterrupted and looks like a new recruit after carrying a knee problem for much of last year.

Draftee Josh Schoenfeld has not only been a sensation in the running, but also added 6kg to his light frame.
