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 was a big success story in 2016. After starting the year not expecting to play senior football, Jesse Joyce was thrust into the round 11 side to play Sydney and ended up playing 11 games. His composure in the backline belied his age (19) and his quality ball use off both sides ensures he should be a fixture on the SUNS list for many years to come.
