Draft History: 2010 local talent access selection (Gold Coast)

Joel Wilkinson joined the GC SUNS as Queensland Zone Selection towards the end of the club’s VFL campaign in 2010.

A truly elite young athlete, Wilkinson captained Queensland at the 2010 Under 18 National Championships and showed plenty of potential as a hard-working running defender.

Wilkinson is a latecomer to the game and his senior appearances will mount as his skills improve.

A small defender who possesses terrific speed and endurance, Wilkinson notched up seven games in 2011 and impressed with his work ethic and diligence to stick to his man.

He found the going bit tougher in 2012, but still managed nine games; his best effort coming against Fremantle when he gathered 16 possessions.

Wilkinson has shown maturity beyond his years, after being the subject of racial taunts from both an opponent and members of the crowd. He has been involved as an ambassador for the AFL in indigenous affairs.
