Gold Coast Suns

Gold Coast SunsAs part of the AFL’s most recent expansion, the Gold Coast Suns entered the AFL in 2011 with the competition’s 17th licence. The young team play at the boutique Metricon Stadium in Robina. The Suns are currently the only team in the AFL yet to qualify for the finals.

2017 was arguably the worst season of Gold Coast’s thus far tortured existence. Coach Rodney Eade quit the club with three games remaining in the year, as the largely uncompetitive Suns closed the season with eight consecutive losses, finishing second last.

New coach Stuart Dew has his work cut out for him in 2018, with several key players leaving the club at the end of 2017 making Gold Coast a popular pick for the wooden spoon. The biggest challenge, however, will be to re-sign captain Tom Lynch, who comes out of contract at the end of the season.
