Experienced SUN Brandon Ellis will make his AFL return in Round 15 against Fremantle in Perth.

Damien Hardwick has confirmed his team to face the Dockers on Sunday with Ellis re-called for what will be his 251st game.

Ellis is one of five inclusions for the match alongside Wil Powell, Jarrod Witts, Jake Rogers and Sam Day, all of whom were confirmed in the side on Thursday evening.

Lloyd Johnston, Alex Davies and Hewago Oea are the three emergencies. The SUNS will name its sub an hour before the first bounce on Sunday.

The match at Optus Stadium gets underway at 4pm AEST on Sunday afternoon and will be broadcast live on the Seven network (check your local guide), Fox Footy and Kayo.

SUNS members and fans are invited to Paint The Star Red at a free live site event for Sunday’s match.

The free event gets underway at 3pm with plenty of games and activations for the whole family, giveaways, appearances from SUNS mascots Sunny Ray & Skye and plenty more, before the SUNS clash with the Dockers live on the big screen from 4pm.
