SUNS Senior Coach Stuart Dew says he doesn’t want his side to fall over at the finish line this weekend against GWS.
Dew says it’s the last chance for the younger players to get valuable AFL experience this year.
“It’s an opportunity for some of our guys to get some good experience,” Dew said.
“Another home game and we want to play well.
“Some guys are getting some good opportunity like Caleb Graham – he’s playing AFL football when generally he probably thought he was in for a year of NEAFL.
“He’ll have some good matchups and there’s some good stories around.”
It will also be the playing group’s last chance to send off inaugural SUN Michael Rischitelli a winner.
“It would be great (to win) for spirit and morale and a tiny bit of momentum,” Dew said.
“The guys that get to play will play in Michael Rischitelli’s last game which is going to be important for us.
“The boys are keen to put in a good showing so I think they’re keen to win their spot in the 22 and play with Risch one last time.”
“He spoke to the boys and himself said he would love to play in one more win.
“It will be a nice touch for him if we could get over the line for him in his last game.
“He’s had a long career and a big career in Queensland footy but also for our club to be here from the start and play so much football, he’s been a great servant.”
The club will also be celebrating two milestones, with both Touk Miller and Aaron Young playing their 100th games.
The match kicks off at 7:25pm this Saturday with the NEAFL side playing a curtain raiser at 3:45pm.
