The Gold Coast Suns are looking increasingly likely to have key backman Stephen May for Saturdays clash with Geelong.

May hasn’t played the clubs last two matches due to a hamstring strain but the team  desperately need its fullback to counter the Cats potent attack.

Suns co – captain Tom Lynch says while May’s return won’t be a quick fix for the team, having his experience alongside rookie backman Jack Leslie gives his team a much better chance of negating the Cats forwards.
