Suns Select Another Two Young Guns In AFL Draft
Duo Joins Top 10 Trio
The Gold Coast Suns have finished their raid on the AFL Draft with two more selections today.
The club used pick #23 to secure roaming half-back Jez McLennan, one of the stand-outs for South Australia in the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.
While with pick #71 the selectors chose Suns Academy player Caleb Graham, after the key defender moved from Cairns to join the Palm Beach Currumbin Lions.
It follows a massively successful first round raid on the Top 10 on Thursday night.
The club used picks #2, #3 and #6 to grab key forward Jack Lukosius, midfielder Izak Rankine, and key defender Ben King.
List manager Craig Cameron was ecstatic to secure the trio, but was adamant they have the power to keep them long-term, after losing a raft of stars to powerful Victorian clubs.
"We've made a lot of change in the off-season to our off-field staff," said Cameron.
"We're probably going to have the most well resourced Player Excellence Division so we're really confident the guys will stay.
"They're excited about coming up."
Meanwhile Broadbeach FC player Bailey Scott is moving to the big smoke down in Victoria.
He was drafted by North Melbourne with pick #49.
