Player Bio

At a Glance

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2006.
Brownlow Medal: Career votes 14
Previous AFL club: West Coast (2005-15: 168 games, 39 goals)
Junior Clubs: Warracknabeal (VIC)
Draft history: 2004 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (West Coast) No. 29 overall; 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by West Coast for No. 36 (Tom Cole).

Now 31, Rosa has been a picture of consistentcy on the wing over the past two seasons in Gold Coast colours. He played 19 games in 2017, taking him past 200 for his career, and averaged 21 disposals and five marks.

Rosa helps form part of the SUNS’ leadership group and provides a cool head under pressure. Despite not being the quickest at the club, the veteran is still a smart ball user and will play a pivotal role as a leader under new coach Stuart Dew.
