Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -

Junior Club: Cairns Saints/Palm Beach-Currumbin (Qld)/ Gold Coast SUNS Academy
Draft History: 2018 Rookie Draft Gold Coast Academy Selection
Previous AFL clubs: - 

A lightning-quick small forward, Jacob Heron played eight games in his debut season and kicked two goals. He debuted in the round nine clash in Shanghai against Port Adelaide, becoming the first player to make their AFL debut outside of Australia.

Hailing from Cairns, Heron is another SUNS Academy graduate and has plenty of weapons at his disposal. The 19-year-old loves to exert defensive pressure, can break lines with his speed and has good goal sense. He’ll have to prove he is worthy of a spot in the best 22 but has proven he has what it takes at AFL level from what we’ve seen so far.
