After their respective tenures with Port Adelaide and North Melbourne came to a close throughout the past 12 months, the pair have set their sights north, with the Suns set to open the door to the duo for an audition.
As reported by Josh Gabelich (AFL Media) and Mitch Cleary (7 News) on Wednesday, both Woodcock and Anderson will commence training under Stuart Dews' watch on Monday in an effort to make their way onto Gold Coasts' rookie list.
Anderson had been linked with a Sunshine Coast lifeline since October, with the Northern Territorian training with NTFL outfit Darwin Buffaloes after failing to secure a new contract at Arden Street.
Woodcock's three-year stay at Alberton came to a close at the cessation of the 2021 season, with the South Australian managing 8 majors across his 12 games in teal.
The 22-year-old spent the 2022 season turning out for VFL side Southport, finishing equal runner-up during the league's best and fairest count after averaging 27.9 disposals per week for the Sharks.
Woodcock won't be the only VFL player heading to AFL clubs for the pre-season, with CODE Sports' Paul Amy reporting Frankton pair Kye Turner and Brodie McLaughlin will train with the Demons and Suns respectively.
Turner played just two matches in 2022 due to an interrupted campaign, while McLaughlin booted 24 goals from his 12 appearances for the Dolphins this year.
VFL: great recognition for two Frankston Dolphins, with key defender Kye Turner (Melbourne) and crafty forward Brodie McLaughlin (Gold Coast) to train with AFL clubs.
