Being Captain of a team is nothing new for Gary Ablett. He was selected as a captain 180,283* times last year in Dream Team and this year, he will lead the Gold Coast Suns. Nathan Bock will be his vice and deputy vice will be Campbell Brown.
But if we look more into this announcement, we see who else is in the leadership group. Surely they won’t be putting anyone in there who won’t be getting games? Huh?!
Zac Smith (RUCK), Maverick Wellar (MID) Daniel Harris (MID) and last years captain Marc Lock (MID) will be basically rookie priced and surely now guaranteed games – at least early on! Not a bad thing to keep in mind when selecting your team… especially as we won’t get a “Round 1” team for the Suns with them having the bye first up.
