There are two changes to the squad for JLT2 this Sunday in Lismore against the Sydney Swans.

Pearce Hanley comes in for his first competitive game of the pre-season while Jack Hombsch will also line up alongside him on the half-back line after both were rested last week.

As reported by SUNS Media in the Alpha Sport Injury Update earlier this week, both Sean Lemmens and George Horlin-Smith will not play the JLT2 match due to injury.

Lemmens will miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery on his ankle while Horlin-Smith has been managed after rolling his ankle in JLT1. 

The club’s three top draftees will all start on the field from the first bounce, with Ben King named in defence and Jack Lukosius and Izak Rankine in the forward line.

The club can choose to field between 22 and 26 players for the JLT Community Series which means the interchange will be cut by at least four and up to eight when the final team is announced on Friday. 

The Gold Coast SUNS will take on the Sydney Swans at 1.10pm AEDT at Oakes Oval in Lismore. To purchase tickets, click here.
