Gold Coast Suns forward Malcolm Rosas Jnr has penned a fresh contract extension with the Sunshine Coast club, tying his future to the Suns for at least two more seasons.

Rosas, a Darwin recruit, recommitted to Gold Coast on Tuesday night, extending his contract to the conclusion of the 2025 season.

The Suns' livewire has played 33 games for the Suns across three AFL seasons, gradually cementing his position in ex-coach Stuart Dew's starting lineup.

Speaking via on Tuesday, Rosas expressed his excitement at being able to re-sign, citing the connections he has made while at Carrara.

"I love the club and have made strong friendships and connections with the playing group and coaches," Rosas said on Tuesday.

"Having the opportunity to play games in Darwin is special to me too. I love playing in front of friends and family.

"I'm really excited to stay at the Suns and help the team achieve success."

Gold Coast's General Manager of Player Talent & Strategy, Craig Cameron, echoed Rosas' sentiments, claiming he is starting to 'make his mark' at the senior level.

"Malcolm has started to make his mark at AFL level and we're excited to see that continue into the future at the Suns," Cameron also said on Tuesday.

"He has worked hard for his opportunity in the AFL and is a role model for young players in the Northern Territory to follow in his footsteps."

Rosas' speed as a forward has stood out since he burst onto the scene, kicking 26 goals last season and this season combined (14 in 2022, 12 in 2023).

Whilst his career is still developing, he has quickly become a valuable pressure forward for Steven King's Suns, applying forward-half defensive pressure in addition to involving himself in scoring opportunities.

Rosas played for Darwin Buffaloes in the NTFL as a junior and quickly became a star in national under-16's, and under-17's competitions then being part of the NT Thunder in the NEAFL. He also won the NTFL's rising star competition in 2018/19.

Rosas is currently averaging 8.6 disposals, 2.4 tackles, and 3.7 score involvements per game and is one of five Territorians on the Sun's roster, along with Joel Jeffery, Lloyd Johnston, Ben Long, and Jed Anderson.

Rosas and the Suns look to keep their slim finals hopes alive when they battle the Crows at Adelaide Oval this Saturday afternoon.
