AFL 2017 Portraits - Gold Coast Suns

Last Saturday’s performance against the Swans has left the selection door wide open this week.

With a crunch match against Collingwood at Metricon Stadium on Saturday, the SUNS Match Committee will be debating long and hard about what changes to make to the team.

A number of experienced players are expected to make their way back from injury, as confirmed in the Optomo Injury Report on Tuesday.

Pearce Hanley
and Aaron Hall both look like they will be available for selection, having recovered from their respective hamstring injuries.

Former skipper Gary Ablett’s recovery from a hamstring injury is also progressing well and he will face a fitness test later this week as he pushes to return to the team.

One name that will be thrown around the selection table is that of Michael Rischitelli, who is edging closer to a return after he got through another full NEAFL game unscathed.

His experience and on-field leadership would be a welcome addition to the SUNS midfield, having not played at AFL level since round 16 last year.

With the Gold Coast reserves suffering a disappointing loss on Saturday, there were few SUNS players putting their hand up for selection.

Ruckman Dan Currie was named best on ground for the SUNS, but as has been the case all season, Jarrod Witts has been in stellar form and will be hard to displace.

Draftee Jack Scrimshaw also performed strongly at reserves level as he looks to make his AFL debut in the back half of the season.
