Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: Gold Coast 3rd best and fairest 2012; Gold Coast leading goalkicker 2011.

Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: Collingwood (2007-09: 5 games, 0 goals).
Draft History:  Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Collingwood) No. 21 overall; 2010 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 5; 2010 rookie elevation (Gold Coast).

One of the most consistent players since the SUNS entered
the AFL, Stanley punched out another 22 games in 2014.

The versatile 26-year-old generally played in the midfield and turned himself into the team’s designated run-with player.

He plugged holes in the backline when required and averaged 17 disposals a game. A ‘Mr Fix It’, Stanley signed a contract extension that keeps him at the club until the end of 2016.

His versatility has been his greatest strength during his time at the SUNS, but in 2015 Stanley has been earmarked for a role across half-forward.
