Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: Brisbane Lions best and fairest 2010; Gold Coast SUNS 3rd best and fairest 2011; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2006
Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 3; career votes 23
Junior Club: Keilor (Vic)/ Western U18
Previous AFL Club:
Brisbane Lions (2002-10: 111 games, 47 goals)
Draft History: 2003 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Brisbane Lions) No. 61 overall; 2010 uncontracted player selection (Gold Coast)

The former Brisbane Lion is the heart and soul of the SUNS. Turning 31, Michael Rischitelli faces the big task of overcoming an ACL injury suffered against his old club in round 16 last season and isn’t expected back until midway through this year.

Before the setback, Rischitelli was having another solid campaign, averaging 20 disposals a game. His off-field leadership is almost as valuable as his on-field play, and the quicker Rischitelli gets back on the field, the better off his team will be.
