Jarrad Grant is one of five players delisted by the Suns

JARRAD Grant and Mitch Hallahan are among five players delisted by Gold Coast.

Grant played 14 games in his two years at the Suns after coming to the club as a delisted free agent from the Western Bulldogs at the end of 2015.

The 28-year-old mobile forward struggled to earn a senior spot this season and is stuck on 95 career games.

Hallahan came from Hawthorn at the end of the 2014 season and played 20 games in his three seasons, but managed just three this year.

Rookies Ryan Davis, Keegan Brooksby and Cam Loersch were also cut.

Davis was a solid contributor in 2016 after having his career resurrected, but battled to crack the senior team this season.

Season review: Gold Coast

The former Eagle played 19 games last year, kicking 15 goals, but appeared just twice at AFL level in 2017.

Brooksby, an undersized ruckman who could fill in as a key position player at both ends of the ground played 14 games in three years, while project forward Loersch failed to play an AFL game in his two seasons.
