After nine seasons and 129 games with the Brisbane Lions, the popular Irishman has made the move down the Pacific Highway to the SUNS as a mature-age recruit.

Hanley is coming off an indifferent year in 2016, despite finishing fourth in the Lions’ best and fairest. A truly damaging player with his speed, evasion and exquisite kicking skills, Hanley is quickly demonstrating he will be able to recapture his best form on the Gold Coast.
