Gunders on Gold Coast Suns’ radar
WHITSUNDAY Sea Eagles player Eli Gunders has once again been selected to play for the Gold Coast Suns academy at a carnival against rival AFL team academies in Coffs Harbour next month.
Eli joins Mackay’s Nick Kempe and Bo Saunders as the three players from the Mackay competition to be selected in the under-15s Suns academy team which will face off against academy sides from the Brisbane Lions, Sydney Swans and Greater Western Sydney Giants.
He played with the under 14s Suns academy team last year and said he was excited to be selected again.
“It was a really good experience and I’m keen to play along some of the boys from last year.”
Mackay AFL regional manager David Harding said it was a great effort from the boys and he congratulated all the coaches and clubs involved.
