Team Announcement: Round 16

SUNS TV: Coaches Chat - Round 16 Stuart Dew talks us through the changes for Round 16 against North Melbourne.

Gold Coast have made two changes ahead of Sunday’s match against North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium.

Will Brodie has been named for his third senior game of 2018 after showing strong form at NEAFL level in recent weeks.

SUNS coach Stuart Dew is looking forward to seeing Brodie form part of Gold Coast’s midfield unit.

“Obviously he got an opportunity a few weeks ago and then went back (to the NEAFL side) and had a really good game on the weekend,” Dew told SUNS TV. 

“He’s got another opportunity to show his stuff and we’re keen to see him fit into our midfield and play well.”

The SUNS are also boosted by the return of Callum Ah Chee, with the classy utility back from a one-week absence.

Ah Chee has played at both ends of the ground this season and has started to get more time in the midfield under his belt.

“Absolutely, he’s a keen addition to the side and he’s really built some good form since coming back from injury.

“He’s been playing up the ground a bit more through the midfield.”

As confirmed on Thursday evening, Ben Ainsworth will miss Sunday’s clash with injury, while rookie Jacob Dawson has been omitted.
