“It’s been good, it’s been really good.”

“It’s good that he’s just been able to have some consistency of getting out on the park and I think he’s developed a lot better sense of switching off and letting his body rest off it as well.”

Contract Update: Elijah Hollands

“You can tell that when he’s training and when he’s in at the club he’s doing it with real intensity.”

“We had a run around little match-sim last Saturday and he was good bursting out of a few stoppages, kicking a few snags (Goals).” 

“It was good to see.” Anderson said. 


Gold Coast CEO Marks Evans also provided an update via SportsdayWA on Rowell speaking of his recovery from a PCL injury early in the 2021 season and his return late in the year as well as a pre-season update. 

‘It was great that he got back and he got back in some pretty good form right at the end of the season, it was a bit of a grind for him there for a few of those weeks.”

“Pleasingly he’s having a ripper of a time across this summer and building up nicely into Round 1.”

“So hopefully for a kid who’s played probably less than 20 games that we’re going to start to see him really develop this year.” Evans said.
