The Gold Coast SUNS have selected Levi Casboult with pick 3 in the 2021 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Casboult joins the club after 12 seasons at Carlton where he played 153 games and kicked 154 goals.

A key forward for the majority of his career, Casboult also has the versatility to play as a key defender or ruck.

GC SUNS National Recruiting Manager Kall Burns said the 31-year-old would bolster the club’s key position stocks.

“Levi will bring depth to our key position stocks and add valuable experience to our developing talls,” Burns said.

“He is a strong and competitive player who plays with great physicality. He is a marking presence and will provide a great target in the front half.

“Levi has achieved a lot at AFL level already and we look forward to him contributing to our future success.”

Casboult’s best season came in 2017 when he won the Carlton leading goalkicker award, playing every game and booting 34 goals.

He was first drafted in 2009 with pick 44 in the NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Casboult joins new recruits Mac Andrew (pick 5) and Charlie Constable (pick 63) at the SUNS after the pair were taken in the National Draft earlier this week.

The club also re-drafted Rory Thompson and Jez McLennan earlier on Friday with Thompson being selected with pick 3 in the NAB AFL Pre-season draft and McLennan pick 3 in the Rookie Draft.
