NEAFL: Match Preview v Aspley

goldcoastfc.com.au  March 18, 2016 10:11 PM

Former Western Bulldog Jarrad Grant will make his first appearance for the Gold Coast SUNS when he takes the field against Aspley in a NEAFL practice match at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

Selected with pick No. 5 in the 2007 national draft, Grant played 81 games with the Bulldogs before joining the SUNS in the off-season, seen as a perfect fit for Gold Coast’s new forward line structure.

After recovering from a fractured wrist suffered in January, the 26-year-old will be looking to push his case for a spot in Rodney Eade’s round one side on Easter Saturday.

Two others pushing for a round one berth are rookies Ryan Davis and Tom Keough. With David Swallow a chance to be placed on the long-term injury list, the SUNS will be able to elevate one player to be eligible for senior selection if this occurs.

Davis and Keough are seen as the top two options on the SUNS' rookie list. Both have played in all three NAB Challenge games and will be seeking to impress Eade and his coaching staff on Saturday.

Danny Stanley will also play his first game of 2016 against Aspley.
