Gold Coast

Preview by: Matthew James – @MatthewJamesFP

For the Gold Coast Suns heading into 2016, there’s only one thing that Rodney Eade will be hoping for: that his core players can stay healthy. The Suns missed their entire first-choice midfield for virtually the whole of 2015, with Gary Ablett Jnr, Dion Prestia, David Swallow and Jaeger O’Meara playing just 20 out of a possible 88 games between them.

There were no major arrivals this offseason, although Matt Rosa and Daniel Currie will provide midfield and ruck depth respectively. The Suns have instead shored up their 2016 draft stocks, bringing in multiple future picks.

However, the loss of Charlie Dixon could mean a significant increase in game time for 2014 draftee Peter Wright. Harley Bennell’s departure will be felt, but the injection of the four previously mentioned midfielders will go a long way to ensuring this team will start to climb back up the ladder.

Predicted Finish: 9th – 12th

    I think the dockers will fished maybe 3rd or 7th I think the dockers will have a good year but beyond that the dockers need a main gold to is to be at our best but the recruiting in the draft was very low dockers put less 10 years for players and dockers don’t do it enough but the will do ok
