At A Glance

Draft history: 2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

Luke Russell overcame a slow start to 2015 to play 13 of the final 16 games of the season, building momentum for his sixth season with the SUNS.

Last season saw the Tasmanian spend the bulk of his time on the wing and going through the depleted midfield as he took his career tally to 70 games.The 24-year-old is known for his leap and thumping right foot kick and will be eager to continue to make a prominent impact for the SUNS.

The high point of the 2015 season for Russell came during the Gold Coast’s big win over North Melbourne at Metricon Stadium in round 14, where the wingman collected a season-high 23 possessions and seven inside 50s to be one of the SUNS best performers.
