The SUNS NEAFL side will have seven changes to take on Aspley this weekend at Voxson Oval.

Corey Ellis will make his return for his first game since an ankle injury sustained in a NEAFL practice match in late March. 

After travelling with the AFL side to Perth, Chris Burgess will play in the NEAFL this week, as well as Jesse Joyce and George Horlin-Smith who were omitted from the AFL side.

Sean Lemmens comes out of the side for AFL selection.

The SUNS’ top Academy prospects will be available for their first NEAFL match this weekend since the Academy claimed the NAB League title last week.

The SUNS’ listed players will be joined by exciting prospects Connor Budarick, Alex Davies, Josh Gore and Hewago Paul Oea.

Davies will play his first NEAFL match after representing Australia’s U17 side last month in an ANZAC exhibition match against New Zealand.
