The Gold Coast SUNS can confirm that former player Elijah Hollands has been served with a notice to appear in court on one count of possession of a small quantity of an illicit substance.

All players receive extensive education on the AFL’s Illicit Drugs Policy and are fully aware of the behaviours and standards expected of them as AFL players.

The AFL Integrity Unit have been made aware and are in the process of conducting their own investigation.

As the matter is currently before the courts, the Club will not be making any further comments at this stage.
