Northern Suns rising star retained

Northlander Reef Bainbridge has been retained for the first time by the Northern Suns for the 2021 AFL New Zealand Premiership. 


The 2020 round 2 rising star continues to develop into an all round footballer.

The speedy winger from Whangarei has only been playing the game a short time but made a big impact playing in his first season of the Premiership.

Reef was hard at the contest in every game he played and created multiple opportunities playing off the half back flank.

“Reef is absolutely fearless, ferocious, and his second, third, fourth efforts would put seasoned veterans to shame. We are absolutely excited to have such an enthusiastic talent not only on our list but part of the heavy contribution on the field.” Adem Manderovic, Northern Suns Head Coach.
