The Gold Coast SUNS will have at least two inclusions to the team to take on Essendon this Sunday at Metricon Stadium.

After suffering a hamstring injury in Round 18, Will Brodie comes out of the side and will miss the remainder of the season. 

He’s been replaced on the field by Anthony Miles who returns from suspension. 

Lachie Weller has also been named to return on the wing after missing last week with illness. 

The extended interchange currently consists of Charlie Ballard, Chris Burgess, Jacob Dawson, Jacob Heron, Jack Leslie, Jez McLennan and Michael Rischitelli.

McLennan could make his debut while Horlin-Smith and Leslie could be other potential ins.

The final interchange will be trimmed to four at 5pm on Friday.
