Team creating good habits, says Dew

GOLD Coast will wait for scans to Pearce Hanley's right shoulder on Monday to see if the Irishman will be available for round one.

Hanley dislocated the shoulder in the final quarter of Sunday's win over Brisbane after touching a ball on the goal-line and sliding towards a fence.

He had it popped back into place before leaving the field and was in a sling post-match.

Suns coach Stuart Dew said it was "hard to know" the extent of Hanley's injury.

"Sometimes they can come out and do a fair bit of damage, other times, given it went back in, it could be a really good sign or a bad one," Dew said. 

"I'll wait for the experts."

Dew said he pleased with Hanley's desperation during pre-season as it would "create good habits" for his team.

Jack Martin was another Sun who finished with a slight cloud over him, sitting out the second half with hamstring tightness. 

However the Suns coach said the rest was precautionary.

"He'll be up in Cairns (for round one)."

The victory was Gold Coast's second of the pre-season and came despite having less disposals, inside 50s and scoring shots.

Dew said after persistent rain on the Gold Coast in recent weeks, his team was ready for the conditions.

"It was a slog," he said.

"It was good for our boys to grind away.

"We won contested ball, ground balls and tackles, things we were working on. It was pleasing."
