Recruited from Fremantle with an exchange of draft picks, Lachie Weller joins the SUNS after playing every game over the last two AFL seasons. Originally from Tasmania, Weller spent the formative years of his football career on the Gold Coast before nominating for the 2014 National Draft.

Known for his pace and agility off half-back, Weller comes to the SUNS as a ready-made defender who can also rotate through the midfield or play higher up the ground when required. He will be looking to slot straight into the SUNS best 22 and establish his position in the side with some strong form throughout the season.
