The order of merit: Gold Coast Suns 2021 season

  The order of merit: Gold Coast Suns 2021 season Who are the Suns players that should play to their optimum level in season 2021? To be eligible for selection, a player must have played at least five games in season 2020, so there can be a reference point as far as those players who apply their talent the best at AFL level. It appears as if all the Suns’ key players have a clean bill of health. It was tough to leave out players like David Swallow, Sam Day and Izak Rankine, but the reality is good players are going to miss out, because there are only ten players to choose from (plus an honourable mention).

He said the Australian Open followed by the launch of MAFS had given Nine some of its best ratings among people aged 16 to 39 in more than a decade.

'We expect the audience will again build across both linear TV and 9Now as Australia follows the journey of the experiment's participants,' Mr Turner added.

AFL stock market: Pre-season edition .
There are always reports during the pre-season in the AFL about a certain player who is ready for a breakout or playing a revamped role. Everyone wants to nail predictions about a player and to make it easy, I will be playing the AFL stock market. For each of the 18 AFL sides, I will be buying, holding and selling stocks, attempting to predict the future. Adelaide Buy: Wayne Milera This guy has always promised the world, but injuries have slowed him down. He has the ball skills, power, endurance and class to be a very handy AFL player, but we haven’t seen it. With a midfield role this year, it’s Wayne’s world.
