The Gold Coast SUNS will have three players returning from injury in the NEAFL match against GWS this weekend.

After eight and nine weeks out injured respectively, Ben Ainsworth and Jack Bowes will make their returns to football.

Ainsworth has been named on the ball while Bowes will start in the half-forward line.

Jordan Murdoch is also set to return from an ankle injury sustained a few weeks ago, named on the wing.

With the SUNS naming an extended squad for the AFL match on Sunday afternoon, the same eight players have been named on the NEAFL interchange with the final bench to be finalised at 5pm on Friday.

The match kicks off at 12:00pm at Metricon Stadium.

The match will be live-streamed here.
