Recently delisted Saint Jack Peris may find a home at Gold Coast under Damien Hardwick when supplemental selections begin after the upcoming National Draft.

The soon-to-be 20-year-old forward was picked up as a category B rookie as part of St Kilda's Academy in 2021, enjoying a successful period of play for the club's reserves side Sandringham.

Peris finished ninth in Sandringham's 2023 best & fairest, leaving many perplexed over the decision to cut him from St Kilda's list.

His debut game for the Saints came in a 26-point loss to Gold Coast, in which he collected 13 disposals, three marks and four tackles in a solid opening performance in the big time.

Recruiters are aware of his athletic potential, being the son of two Olympians, including Hockey Gold Medallist Nova Peris and sprinter, Daniel Batman.

Accordingly, Jack has made a name for himself on the football field with his electric pace and athleticism, and could now continue his career in Queensland.

As reported by AFL.com.au, Peris will link up with the Suns as a train-on player and will seek to secure a rookie list spot through the Supplemental Selection Period, which opens on November 27.

Gold Coast have expressed an interest in offering him a trial at training prior the February signing deadline should he not be picked up as a rookie selection when drafting commences next week.

He could become the eighth Northern Territory local on Gold Coast's list, as the club further fosters its relationship with the Darwin region and AFLNT.
