The combined clubs of the Northern Rivers Junior AFL turned out in force on Saturday for a sign-on full of fun and games with players from the Gold Coast Suns.
The Suns, who are our closest AFL side with their home ground at Metricon Stadium at Carrara, took the opportunity to head south and check out the local talent on show at the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex.
Suns’ player Nathan Bock said he loves the opportunity to watch Gold Coast juniors up close. ‘It’s always great to assist the local clubs and of course meet the future stars of our game’, said Bock. ‘You never know, some of these kids could one day be playing on Metricon Stadium for the Gold Coast Suns.’
