It was a decline from the Gold Coast Suns in season 2015, as they failed to live up to expectation under new coach Rodney Eade.

Mounting injuries and without proper leadership saw the potential top eight side slip down to potential winners of the 2015 wooden spoon.

The Suns lost key forward Charlie Dixon to Port Adelaide, which will add more pressure on to the young shoulders of Tom Lynch.

The Suns however, brought in experienced defender and former West Coast Premiership player Matt Rosa.

Wayne Milera

Obvious choice to assist Brandon Matera and Tom Lynch for the Suns in 2016, talented and smart in attack, the South Australian will capture the eyes of the Suns recruitment team at the National Draft in Adelaide.

Five goals and 25 possessions for Central Districts can also see Milera play up into the midfield alongside O’ Meara, Rischitelli and Ablett.

Other Likely Picks

Eric Hipwood, Charlie Curnow


Sam Weideman

With the departure of key forward Charlie Dixon and with Brandon Matera playing more of a midfield role in 2015, the Suns would need a second tall down forward, and if Melbourne, Carlton and Essendon pass on Weideman on Tuesday Night, he may travel up to the Coast to begin his AFL career.
