As foreshadowed by Senior Coach Damien Hardwick during the week and after a taxing first match in Darwin conditions, the club has made the decision to manage four players.

After being managed themselves for the match against North Melbourne, both Brayden Fiorini and David Swallow have returned to the team to take on the Cats.

Joining them as inclusions are young ruck Ned Moyle and veteran forward Sam Day.

Moyle comes in for co-captain Jarrod Witts, while Day has replaced SUNS Academy young gun Jed Walter.

Jake Rogers and Nick Holman have also been managed to allow for the return of Fiorini and Swallow.

Walter, Rogers and Holman all remain on the emergency list.

The SUNS will once again have three Indigenous and local Northern Territory products in the lineup for the match at TIO Stadium, with Joel Jeffrey, Ben Long and Lloyd Johnston all having strong performances in Round 9.

The match will kick off the AFL’s Sir Doug Nicholls Round and will be broadcast nationally on the Seven network.

First bounce is at 7:30pm, with Jess Mauboy set to take the stage at TIO Stadium for a pre-match show Darwin fans won’t want to miss.
