Izak Rankine continued his purple patch with a four goal haul, contributing around the ground with plenty of unselfish play.

Noah Anderson was industrious in the midfield with 30 disposals, six clearances and a goal.

Also hitting the scoreboard was debutant Hewago Oea who joined the illustrious first kick, first goal club.

The Papua New Guinean native showed real footy instinct at the higher level and fans will no doubt be pleased with his first AFL match.

The SUNS last line of defence were unrelenting, with Sam Collins doing his best job to repel opposition attacks.

Despite immense pressure, Co-Captain Touk Miller finished with 31 touches, 10 tackles, 10 clearances and seven inside 50s for the match.
