THE Suns had as strong a hand as you could get in this year’s “su­per draft”. They had three picks in­side the top 10 who all look set to be beau­ties. Jack Luko­sius (be­low left), se­lected at No.2, is a key for­ward who has been likened to for­mer St Kilda star Nick Riewoldt. He has played against AFL-hard­ened bod­ies in the SANFL for the past two years, sug­gest­ing he is ca­pa­ble of early se­nior op­por­tu­ni­ties. Fel­low South Aus­tralian Izak Rank­ine (pick No.3) sim­i­larly de­buted in the SANFL as a 16-year-old and is a classy mid­fielder with plenty of tricks, while Ben King (No.6) is a ver­sa­tile 202cm for­ward.
