With no fresh injury concerns coming out of last week’s victory over the Western Bulldogs, the SUNS’ Selection Committee could opt to back in the same squad once again when they take on Carlton.
Gold Coast’s NEAFL side had some notable performers, with those players keen to knock down the door for selection in the senior side.
Sam Day can play at either end of the ground but it was his work as a forward that resulted in a five-goal haul against Canberra.
Midfielder Will Brodie was prolific as he racked up plenty of touches to be among the best. With the likes of Anthony Miles, Jack Bowes and Brayden Fiorini all performing strongly at AFL level, the 20-year-old may need to bide his time and continue to work on his craft.
If a change is required for a forward who can rotate through the midfield, then Aaron Young could come under consideration. He was also named in the best and managed to hit the scoreboard too.
Jacob Heron continues to impress and, having been named in extended squads already this season, shows that he might not be too far away from a call up.
Draftee Ben King will be keen to press for selection as he aims for an AFL debut, spending time as both a forward and defender at NEAFL level.
After missing the last two games with a back injury, George Horlin-Smith remains a test, but his name could be in the conversation if he does manage to prove his fitness.
