Eade adamant he wants to continue as Suns coach

GOLD Coast coach Rodney Eade says he wants to lead the Suns well into the future.

The pressure has been on Eade at different stages this year after a poor start to the season but Gold Coast scored a three-point win over West Coast on Saturday which it will be hoping is a turning point in its campaign.

Eade, who comes out of contract at season's end, said while he could not look too far ahead with great certainty, he wanted to be the Suns' coach long-term.

"Yes, I do want to do it," he said on RSN 927.

"I don't think you set anything in stone in footy. Things can change in six weeks let alone six months. So we just wait and see and see how we go over the next period of time."

Gold Coast sits 14th on the ladder with a 4-6 record, but have enjoyed wins over Hawthorn and Geelong as well the Eagles.

"We're making ground, but we will still be inconsistent because we are young," Eade said.

Eade said he had been impressed with Adelaide recruit Jarryd Lyons, who had taken some of the pressure off Gary Ablett and David Swallow in the midfield, and young tall Jack Leslie alongside Steven May in defence.
