Pearce Hanley endured the year from hell in 2017, starting with a return to Ireland to be with his younger brother who passed away and then injuring his foot in a NEAFL practice match upon his return. The Irishman then went on to play 12 of the final 14 games of the season.

After breaking his hand in the International Rules Series, Hanley underwent rehab during pre-season to build up to full fitness. Now 29, Hanley should be a crucial player again for the SUNS in 2018, having been elevated to the club’s leadership group.
