Matt Rowell was drafted to the Gold Coast Suns as the Number 1 Draft Pick in the 2019 AFL National Draft. The dynamic inside midfielder dominated Under 18 competitions across 2019, and at 180cm and 80kg, has the frame to slot into the physicality of the AFL.
Rowell has no issues finding the football and averaged 31.6 disposals throughout 2019. This culminated in 44 possession’s and 2 goals in a Best on Ground performance for Oakleigh Chargers in their NAB League Grand Final win.
While he has the attributes to play anywhere around the ground, Rowell’s work in the midfield through his disposal efficiency, contested work, clearances and tackling pressure could see him as a big addition to an ever developing Gold Coast Suns line up.
