In his 50th AFL game, Gold Coast forward Peter Wright has earned himself a Coates Hire Goal of the Year nomination.

Receiving a handball from debutant Jack Lukosius deep in the pocket, Wright's snap sailed through for his second goal of the game.

Richmond's Jack Higgins and Brisbane's Charlie Cameron were the other Round 1 nominees.

SUNS fans can get behind Wright and vote for him below to put him in the running for the major award at season’s end.
