The Gold Coast SUNS have made two changes to the team to take on Adelaide at Metricon Stadium this Saturday.

After mounting his comeback in the NEAFL last weekend, lively forward Sean Lemmens has been included to play his second AFL game of the season. 

Lemmens hurt his ankle in the Round 8 match against Melbourne but returned with 21 disposals and five tackles in the NEAFL win over Redland.

Michael Rischitelli has also been named for his first game this season after some impressive performances in the NEAFL.

As reported in the Alpha Sport Injury Update earlier this week, Wil Powell (knee) and Jack Martin (finger) will miss the match with injury.

After being a late out for the match against Richmond last week, Peter Wright will play in the NEAFL but remains an emergency for this week. 

Jacob Dawson will also be an emergency for the match and has been promoted off the Category B Rookie List as a replacement for Sam Collins who has been placed on the Long Term Injury List. 

The SUNS take on the Crows at 7:25pm at Metricon Stadium this Saturday, with the QW Winter Series team set to play at the Gabba at 2pm earlier that day.
