Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Palm Beach-Currumbin (Qld)/ Gold Coast SUNS Academy
Draft History:
2016 Rookie Draft Gold Coast Academy selection (Gold Coast) No. 67; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Gold Coast)

The SUNS Academy graduate impressed in 2017 playing 17 games and averaging 15 disposals. Jesse Joyce is a composed defender who can play tall or small, and has proved himself to be a mainstay in the SUNS senior side over the past two years.

Joyce is a product of Palm Beach Currumbin high school and is a composed ball-user coming out of his back half. Playing alongside Steven May and a fit Rory Thompson in 2018 will be the goal for Joyce as the trio aim to build a reliable defensive unit in 2018.
