"Having Stuey come on board this year, it's been awesome," Lemmens said of Suns coach Stuart Dew.

Saturday, 20 August 2016
Sean Lemmens is stretchered off the ground in the second quarter of the Suns' clash with Collingwood at Etihad Stadium.

Lemmens and Jesse White collided as they both attempted to claim a bouncing ball, and White, who has an 11cm height advantage, collected the Suns defender high although content appeared accidental.

Lemmens lay on the ground motionless for several moments before he was taken from the field in a neck brace.

The Suns later tweeted a photo of Lemmens giving a thumbs-up sign from the changerooms indicating that he was feeling much better.

"He just got a clip on the jaw which I would've thought was accidental. He actually contributed to it, I thought. It was just unlucky," Suns coach Rodney Eade said about Lemmens.

"It was one of those where he had his mouth open and knocked his jaw back and he's got a bit of a cut lip.

"He's quite lucid at the moment, he's OK."

Wednesday, 1 June 2016
Sean Lemmens signs a two-year extension with Gold Coast that will tie him to the Suns until at least the end of 2018.

"It is no secret to anyone that knows me that the Gold Coast has become my home away from home, so to continue to live out my AFL career in Queensland is an opportunity I donít take for granted," Lemmens said.

"The club has been incredibly supportive in my three years."

Thursday, 24 April 2014
No. 27 draft pick Sean Lemmens has held his place in defence for the Suns and the benefits have flowed to his teammates.

"What originally jumped out was his ability to read the play and cut the angles, knowing he had his own opponent covered, but was able to come across and assist another teammate," Suns defensive coach Dean Solomon said.

"He looked to be a bit above the level at under-18s. He has an appetite to be in the contest and you love that in your defenders."

After impressing in the pre-season, Clay Cameron is selected to make his AFL debut in the Suns' season opener against Richmond along with South Australian Sean Lemmens.

"Coming from being drafted this year I thought it (round one selection) might be out of reach, but I've done everything within my power to put my hand up and I was lucky enough the coaches thought I was ready to go," Lemmens said.
