The Gold Coast SUNS' NEAFL team return home to Metricon Stadium to take on the Redland Bombers this Saturday afternoon.

The SUNS will be looking to recapture the good form that they were in prior to last week's defeat against the Swans.

A win for Gold Coast will consolidate their position in the top six as we near the end of the season.

Eighteen AFL-listed players have been named for the home team, with a host of names returing from the AFL side as well as injury.

The likes of Jesse Lonergan, Darcy Macpherson and Brayden Fiorini will form part of a strong midfield unit for the SUNS.

Experienced midfielder Michael Rischitelli comes out of the team, having proven his match fitness and earning promotion to the senior side.

Wingman Matt Shaw will miss the game due to injury, as will Cameron Loersch.

The match will be played at 12.55pm as a curtain raiser to the Gold Coast SUNS v Collingwood clash.
