After the Round 5 loss to the Crows, Gold Coast’s match committee could be set to make several changes for QClash17 against the Lions this Saturday.
Anthony Miles was withdrawn from last week’s squad with a corked calf but will be keen to prove his fitness and re-claim his place in the team.
The midfielder had enjoyed a solid start to life in SUNS colours, averaging 21.5 touches across the first four games.
Wil Powell is another who started the season in the best 22 and after showing signs of progress in his recovery from concussion, could be available for selection.
Brad Scheer has strung together a couple of solid games at NEAFL level and continues to put pressure on the senior team.
With Gold Coast limited to six goals by the Crows’ defence, the door might open for some of the forwards performing well in the NEAFL.
Aaron Young was among the SUNS’ best at reserves level, gathering 38 touches and kicking 1.2.
If the coaches deem that changes are required in the key position posts, Josh Corbett and Sam Day are two names that could be considered.
Corbett now has two NEAFL games under his belt and shown promising signs, while Day has proven experience at AFL level.
