GOLD Coast Suns have confirmed their four pre-listed players today with Aiden Fyfe, Alex Davies, Joel Jeffrey and Rhys Nicholls all committing to the club ahead of the 2020 AFL Draft. Under the AFL rules that came in prior to the 2019 AFL Draft the Suns were able to pre-list players without having to match bids on them, and have opted to select these four talented players.
Alex Davies and Joel Jeffrey were long touted as Top 25 prospects and were expected to be pre-listed from very early on in the year. For Aiden Fyfe and Rhys Nicholls, it is a reward for effort throughout 2020, having had sensational seasons with Broadbeach and Labrador in the Queensland Australian Football League (QAFL) competition respectively.
Here is all you need to know Suns’ fans:
