Sun sets on horror AFL season of injury for Gold Coast

GOLD Coast coach Rodney Eade has congratulated his side on its resilience, despite finishing the AFL season with just four wins and a draw.

The Suns went down to Sydney by 63-points in the final game of the regualar at the SCG last night.

But Eade says their injury list needs to be put in persepctive.


“People talk about Fremantle resting ten, North rest eight or nine… and we’ve had 10 to 12 out of our best 22 out for 12 to 14 weeks and we’ve stayed in games for a really long time,” Eade said in a post-match press conference.

The club will spend the next week in meetings, deciding who will stay and who will go ahead of next season.
