Michael Barlow and Touk Miller have been added to a seven-man leadership group at Gold Coast for this year's AFL season.

The pair will join co-captains Steven May and Tom Lynch, as well as Michael Rischitelli, Matt Rosa and David Swallow in the Suns' senior roles after being voted in by teammates.

Ex-captain Gary Ablett is a notable absentee from the group after stepping down as captain in the off-season.

"We are really pleased that Tom and Steven will be supported by a strong group of leaders," Suns coach Rodney Eade said.

Michael Barlow has made an immediate impact on the playing group, leading by example on and off the field and his elevation to the player leadership group demonstrates the influence he has had on the team in a relatively short period of time.”
