Who makes the final 22 will be an interesting discussion.

There are still a handful of positions undecided in Gold Coast’s round one side to face Brisbane at Metricon Stadium this Saturday night.

With unprecedented depth and competition for spots leading into the 2017 season, the SUNS are in a strong position with some robust discussions to take place at Monday afternoon’s match committee meeting.

“We’ve got match committee this afternoon so the conversation will be a long one I’d imagine to see who makes that final 22,” assistant coach Dean Solomon told reporters at SUNS headquarters on Monday afternoon.

“I think when you’re having those conversations it means you’re in a good position. We haven’t had a lot of that over the previous years which is unfortunate but the past is the past, the future’s right here and now and right now we sit in a good spot.

“Who makes the final 22 will be an interesting discussion.”

Much of the conversation will be around whether players who represented the club in Saturday’s NEAFL practice match have done enough to force their way into the side, or if they have the required match fitness to make an impact in what will be a high-intensity, physical contest against the Lions.

Solomon said there were probably four or five spots up for discussion.

“We had a couple of guys play in our NEAFL on the weekend on limited game time and performed quite well so yeah, probably four or five spots we’ve got to chat about and then it comes down to balance of the side as well so a long afternoon ahead,” Solomon said.
