Sun sets on Saad


GOLD Coast defender Adam Saad’s impressive debut season is over, ruled out for the last two rounds because of a groin injury.

Saad, 21, a mature-aged rookie, has been a high point of a disappoint­ing campaign for the Suns. He has played in 16 games and picked up a Rising Star nomination for his Round 5 display against state rival Brisbane.

Meanwhile, Nat Fyfe will not be seen for Fremantle until the finals. The dashing midfielder and Brownlow Medal favourite is battling leg soreness but the Dockers are confident the 23-year-old will only miss two weeks.
