Northern Suns secure key players for 2022

The Northern Suns will have the services of Reed Cathcart, Tom Hayhoe and Josh Cunliffe for the 2022 Men’s Premiership season.

Reed Cathcart is one of the most exciting players in the country and the Uni Blues star is fast, agile and an amazing mark.

Reed dominated the 2021 Premiership and has represented NZ at senior level in 2019.

Tom Hayhoe has been super consistent in defence for the past two seasons and was rewarded with back to back inclusions to the Premiership Team of the Year.

Tom plays for the North Shore Tigers in the Auckland AFL and can’t wait for an exciting 2022 season with the new look Suns.

Josh Cunliffe will return to where it all began in 2022. Josh started his career at the Suns and has carved out a successful career in footy, so far.

2017 was the biggest highlight for Josh. After winning the Premiership with the Southern Saints in April, Josh then made the New Zealand side for the AFL International Cup, followed by winning the Auckland AFL Premiership, with the North Shore Tigers.

Josh is a hard running small forward who loves to kick a goal. His versatility often sees him as a key defender when required.

The Suns will rise up and play their first game on February 13th, 2022.
