When are we gonna sign someone!
Try to attract elite athletes from other sports who already live near the coast.
Then do what the AFL team has to do.

Draft, draft, draft, draft.
Develop, develop, develop, develop.

And hope that a good player every now and then is happy to move to the coast for work/lifestyle.

Then hope they have the right people drafting and developing.

For the large part you are drafting from your academy, then QAFLW. Possibly players who originate from northern NSW as well.

Other than that, similar to last year, some interstate players, particularly from SA, who get overlooked from the Crows and are willing to move north to play football.

That rounds off our Trade Period. Quite a quiet TP which is surprising as I gathered we would've looked to try and bring in some new experienced players given those who we have lost this season including former foundation captains too.

Curious if anyone here knows how many Suns players and academy girls will be lining up for Bomd Uni in tomorrow’s QAFLW final?

Looks like it's...

Current GC players: Ellie Hampson, Kalinda Howarth, Wallis Randell, Lucy Single and Serene Watson.

Academy members: Jasmyn Davidson, Giselle Davies and Georgia Hutton. Caitlin Thorne named as an emergency.

And there's also Molly Ritson who played 2 games this year (and 7 last year) for the Suns but has since been delisted.
