The SUNS will be looking to showcase their ANZAC spirit in the clash against fierce rivals Brisbane Lions at Metricon Stadium this weekend.
To celebrate the occasion the SUNS have released a commemorative ANZAC Guernsey in association with RSL Queensland.
SUNS midfielder Brayden Fiorini talked about how important it is to honour those who have given so much for the community.
“One of our values as a club is based around the community and trying to give back as much as we can, this is just one way we can show our support," Fiorini said.
“It’s a great initiative… I’m really proud to wear (the guernsey), and I can’t wait to put it on this weekend.”
The match-worn guernseys will be auctioned off with all proceeds going towards the ANZAC Appeal.
The ANZAC Appeal round will also hold increased significance with the match being the first QClash of the season.
Brisbane will come into the game full of confidence after a strong start to the season which has them placed third on the ladder with just one defeat so far.
The SUNS will have had plenty of time to reflect on their defeat to St Kilda, with Fiorini stating the team wasn’t able to play to its identity.
“A very disappointing result on the weekend, we weren’t satisfied with it. We have reviewed it and had a few key takeaways mainly focusing around contested ball and tackles," he said.
“Our SUNS ‘heat’ - that is our brand of footy and we know that whenever we bring that we can contest with anyone.
“We will have an eight-day gap between games and following a good session today, we worked on what we needed to and tweaked some things to go into the weekend full of confidence.”
Looking ahead to this weekend’s big clash Fiorini was looking forward to playing in front of a strong home crowd once again.
“QClash’s always have a bit more extra excitement around it and hopefully we get as many fans out there as we can on Sunday afternoon.”
The SUNS will play the Lions this Sunday at Metricon Stadium, with the match scheduled for a 4:10pm start.
With gates opening at 2:15pm, there is plenty for the whole family to do at the Metricon Stadium Kids Zone before watching the SUNS face the Lions.
