Suns add regional flair to 2022 squad

The Northern Suns have added regionals players, Josh Allen, Chris Bailey and Clayton Hicks to their 2022 player list.

Ruckman Josh Allen will remain a Sun next season after returning to the Premiership in 2021, following a two year lay off through injury.

A quiet achiever, Josh had a breakout season in 2018 and capped off the year with his inclusion into the New Zealand Senior side who played the AFL Academy in Wellington over ANZAC weekend.

Midfielder Chris Bailey will be a part of the Northern Suns set up in 2022, following stints with the Giants and the Crows in recent years.

Chris is a hard running midfielder who can be utilised off the half back flank. His ability to link with the forwards is exceptional and this will play a key role for the side chasing their first Premiership.

Clayton Hicks will make the move from the Saints to the Suns in 2022.

The Manurewa Raiders gun made his debut in the Premiership in 2021 and made a sudden impact.
