With three rounds to go in this year’s home and away season, the Gold Coast Suns sit in an all too familiar spot at the bottom of the ladder. Despite a positive start to the season, which saw them claim wins over the Dockers, Dogs and Blues, the Suns have failed to register a win since Round 4.

With the club now in its ninth season, and having failed to make a single finals appearance, much has been attempted to assist the Suns out of the footballing abyss. Despite countless first-round draft picks, a brand-new stadium, and the prowess of one of the greatest players of all-time in Gary Ablett Jnr, the Suns have yet to spark into any sort of successful action.

Looking ahead to next season, here are five players who could give the Suns some much-needed shine.

Bryce Gibbs

Having fallen out of favour at Adelaide following a drastic dip in form this season, Gibbs found himself lurking in the Crows’ reserves team for the majority of this season. The former number one pick has ultimately struggled since moving back to his home state from the Blues at the conclusion of the 2017 season, and a move to the Gold Coast may allow Gibbs to reinvigorate his career at the highest level. With 259 senior games under his belt, Gibbs would provide the Suns’ midfield with necessary experience and leadership.
