Suns 'embarrassed' by Richmond thrashing

Suns 'embarrassed' by Richmond thrashing Gold Coast Suns coach Stuart Dew said his team wouldn't be hiding from the reality of an inept display against the Tigers.

Exciting young Gold Coast forward Izaak Rankine has signed a contract extension before he has managed to play a senior game. The re - signing of Rankine is a significant development for the Suns after years of losing their young stars including three captains in barely more than a year.

Izak Rankine kicked an incredible goal in the opening minutes as the Suns held on over the Bulldogs for a gritty win in the 2019 JLT Community Series. You' re viewing YouTube in Russian.

The 19-year-old, taken with pick three in last year's draft, has been hampered by injury in his first AFL season after showing glimpses of his talent in the pre-season series.

Despite hamstring injuries preventing him from making his AFL debut, Rankine has signed an extended contract with the Suns until the end of the 2022 season.

"Since I've arrived, I've loved my time on the Coast," the South Australian said.

"I've learnt so much about footy and my body and am looking forward to continuing that over the coming years.

Young gun willing to be a Sun . AFL national talent manager Kevin Sheehan is confident players like Walsh, Jack Lukosius, Max King and Izak Rankine can have the sort of careers that will make this year’s national selection meeting known as Super Draft Mark 2 down the track.

Gold Coast Suns player Kade Kolodjashnij is knocked out by heavy hit against Richmond.

"There have been so many different people who have invested their time in me, I can't wait to repay them."

Rankine recently returned from his latest hamstring injury for the Suns' reserves and is hopeful of making his AFL debut before the end of the 2019 campaign.

He is one of several Suns to commit their long term futures to the club this season including co-captains David Swallow and Jarrod Witts, vice-captain Touk Miller, forward Alex Sexton as well as Rory Thompson, Peter Wright, Ben Ainsworth and Jack Bowes.

Western Bulldogs have locked away one of the key members of their team going forward, with ruckman Tim English signing a contract extension. The deal will see him stay at the club until the end of 2022. Both Western Australian clubs have kept a close eye on the 21-year-old since he was drafted by the Bulldogs with pick 19 in the 2016 national draft. English is the ninth player to re-sign with the Bulldogs in 2019, along with the likes of Josh Dunkley, Tom Liberatore, Aaron Naughton and Caleb Daniel. English told westernbulldogs.com.au how happy he was to extend his contract with the club.
