Jack Lukosius Biography

Saturday, 3 June 2023
Jack Lukosius became the first player in Gold Coast history to boot five goals in back-to-back matches as the Suns recorded two wins from two in Darwin.

Monday, 20 February 2023
After four seasons of being used in a variety of positions, Jack Lukosius hopes to settle in attack for Gold Coast in 2023.

"It is where I want to play. I think Dewy and the coaches want me to impact the game as much as I can," Lukosius said.

"If that's in the front half of the ground, whether that's higher or deeper, to help us score, I think that'll help the team the most."

Thursday, 23 June 2022
Jack Lukosius signs a four-year deal with Gold Coast to remain with the Suns until the end of 2026.

"I was always comfortable here. I'm obviously close to my family back home, but never had a reason to leave the Gold Coast and have always enjoyed playing football here," he said.

"I'm glad the deal's done and I can get to work and get back on the field."

Saturday, 4 July 2020
After getting his AFL feet wet all over the ground last year, Jack Lukosius has settled into the Suns' backline in 2020.

"This year I trained all pre-season down back and really simplified the game, and it's got me really confident in my role," Lukosius said.

"I think it's worked out pretty well. Obviously, I learnt a lot seeing the game behind the ball and in front of it last year, and I'm feeling really comfortable in defence at the moment and it's really catapulted me into this season.

"I am definitely feeling comfortable there at the moment but I'm happy to play wherever 'Dewy' (Suns coach Stuart Dew) puts my magnet. I'm open to going forward at some point as well."

Thursday, 21 November 2019
Jack Lukosius signs a two-year contract extension with Gold Coast to remain at the club until the end of 2022, putting an end to any speculation of a return to South Australia.

"Over the off-season I took the opportunity to reflect on my first year at AFL level and that made making the decision an easy one, I've loved my time at the club so far," Lukosius said.

"We've got a great group of players, who are all committing to the future of this football club and I can't wait to be a part of it.

"The way everyone at the club has made my family and I feel welcome has definitely helped with the transition to becoming a professional footballer in the AFL.

"The challenge now is to put my head down, continue to work hard on developing my game and ensure I'm ready to play my role for the team on field in 2020."

Sunday, 24 March 2019
Jack Lukosius makes his AFL debut for Gold Coast at Docklands Stadium with 11 disposals (7 kicks and 4 handballs), 4 marks and 2 tackles in a 1-point loss to St Kilda.
Friday, 23 November 2018
Gold Coast select Jack Lukosius with pick No.2 in the 2018 National Draft.

ďItís an awesome feeling Iíve always dreamt to get drafted (and) canít wait to get up there,Ē Lukosius told SUNS TV.

ď(Itís) a big relief hearing my name called out, I canít wait to get stuck into training on Monday, meet all the boys and get stuck into it really.Ē

Monday, 15 October 2018
Port Adelaide has fired a warning shot at Gold Coast, declaring it would back itself to lure highly rated draftees Jack Lukosius or Izak Rankine back home if the Suns recruit either of them.

"If Lukosius and Rankine end up going to Gold Coast, we're probably pretty happy to try to get them back in a few years' time," Cripps said.

"It's interesting, because then it just becomes a two-horse race between us and the Crows, as opposed to a Victorian kid that wants to come back home, who has potentially got 10 options."

Thursday, 4 October 2018
Likely top-two pick Jack Lukosius says he has no qualms about becoming a Sun and moving north.

"It would be awesome to stay home with the family, but I can see big benefits in moving away and becoming a better person and growing up a lot quicker," Lukosius said.

"I think if I move away, I won't be 100 per cent ready for it. But I think I'll make the most of it and it would be good for my football."

Wednesday, 11 July 2018
The Crows hold at least two first-round picks in November's NAB AFL Draft and speculation has mounted that the club could be willing to construct an attractive package of picks to move to the top of the draft in order to secure South Australian and pick no.1 prospect Jack Lukosius.

This may align with Carlton's intention to lure some established talent to Ikon Park this off-season.

"I do know that Adelaide are desperate to have Lukosius go to them, local boy, very good player," Carlton football boss Andrew McKay said.

"We've been to the draft the last three years getting good young players, but we're a bit light on through that 24 to 27 age bracket, so we need to strengthen that up a little bit."
