New team, New Opportunity to Rise from the Ashes?
Starved of opportunities and overtaken by Brodie Grundy at Collingwood, Jarrod Witts has a great opportunity to resurrect his AFL career at the Gold Coast Suns.
In his second and third year of AFL, he looked pretty good and showed potential of being great. However, the kid hasn’t received much good fortune. However, he can put this run to bed the upcoming year. Let us examine the Gold Coast Suns’ ruck stock.
- Dan Currie (has played a few years in the AFL system, but is injury prone and inconsistent)
- Tom Nicholls (inconsistent, injury prone)
- Peter Wright (more a forward than a ruckman)
Now, I ask, “is this stiff competition?” If your answer is no, then well done. He’s a cash cow.

The SuperCoach Committee has given us potentially another Stefan Martin here. At the very least could accumulate up to $400k. May help us mid-season turn a mid-pricer into a Dangerfield. However, I wouldn’t dare pick him at R2. A wonderful bench option.
YES (only at R3) otherwise CONSIDER
