Player Bio

The younger Ablett has not been seen at AFL level since he played alongside his brother and now Gold Coast star Gary in Geelong’s 2007 premiership side. Moved to the Gold Coast to work and play local football but has decided he’s ready to re-commit and the Suns took him in last year’s pre-season draft. It’s a risk given he’s been out of the game at the highest level for three years but he has the size and the ability to make a fist of it.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2005; Geelong premiership side 2007.

Previous AFL club: Geelong (2005-07: 32 games, 46 goals).

Draft history: 2004 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round father-son selection (Geelong) No. 48 overall; 2011 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 1 overall.
