Gold Coast renew interest in three-time Richmond premiership defender


Gold Coast has a renewed interest in Richmond defender Nathan Broad.

The Suns had cooled on the triple premiership backman, who remains unsigned for next season.

Broad’s uncontracted defensive colleague Oleg Markov, who was again overlooked for much of the season, had become Gold Coast’s priority.

But it’s understood the Suns have had a change of heart and are again knocking for Broad, who has former teammate Brandon Ellis at the Queensland club.

It’s understood the Suns would only take one of Broad or Markov.

Broad, 27, has played 69 games for Richmond since being taken with pick 67 in the 2015 national draft.

He has been a dependable regular in Damien Hardwick’s side since playing the last 10 games in the Tigers’ 2017 premiership season.

But the Suns will not overpay for a player who may want a decent pay rise after taking less at a strong Richmond side.
