Bennell, Matera and McKenzie were on Tuesday stood down from this weekend’s game against Adelaide after the trio were spotted drinking after the Suns’ big win over the Brisbane Lions in round five.
According to News Corp, Stanley also will not be considered for the clash with the Crows after he consumed alcohol on Sunday.
The Suns have a rule in place that does now allow players to drink alcohol within six days of an upcoming match.
Gold Coast’s squad is already threadbare due to injury, and the loss of Bennell, Matera, Mackenzie and Stanley will leave the side short of options before its clash with the Crows on Saturday at Metricon Stadium.
The Suns’ comfortable win over the Lions was its first of the year, with Rodney Eade’s side currently sitting in 15th place after five rounds.
