Three of the Shark’s big men – Fraser Thurlow, Brayden Crossley and Riley Bowman are locked in for 2023.

Fraser Thurlow will return after injuring his hamstring late in the home and away season, which meant that he, unfortunately, missed playing finals.

Brayden Crossley had a terrific season at the club in 2022. Crossley averaged 26 hit outs, 15 disposals, 4 marks and 6 tackles a game. He also kicked 13 goals for the season.

Riley Bowman made his debut for the club in Round 1 in 2022 and will continue to push for more VFL selection in 2023.

Southport Coach Steve Daniel said, “We can’t wait to see Fraser back on the field in 2023 after a decent stint on the sideline. To have Brayden and Riley back on board as well is exciting.”
