The Gold Coast SUNS have made two changes to the team to face Hawthorn in Launceston this weekend.

Alex Davies makes his return to AFL level after two weeks in the VFL since overcoming a knee injury sustained earlier in the season.

He’s joined by Brandon Ellis who has been deemed fit to play after missing last weekend’s match with a shoulder injury.

Coming out of the team are Rory Atkins and Oleg Markov who have both been omitted.

The emergency list consists of Atkins, untried ruckman Ned Moyle, Jack Bowes and Brayden Fiorini, with one of those four to be named the medical substitute one hour prior to first bounce.

The match against Hawthorn at UTAS Stadium gets underway at 1:45pm AEST, and will be broadcast live on Fox Footy, Kayo and the Seven Network (check your local guide).
