    He has been trialled there before and failed.

    Prediction Our side round 1, 2020...?

    McStay has been trialled as a back man before and failed. He was ball,watching rather than worrying about his opponent. That is probably why he is 8n the forward line.

    I read somewhere that they were going to play Robertson in the NEAFL as an outside mid to improve his kicking. This makes sense because they want to improve his all round game. They already know what he can do on the inside. I have also heard that T Berry needs to tidy up his kicking so he may...

    Prediction Our side round 1, 2020...?

    For their forward entries they rely on getting the ball in quickly so that Cameron can play one on one and kick miracle goals. They do not rely on spotting up a leading forward that much. This game plan was exposed in the finals when both Richmond and GWS played an extra man in defence to...

    I agree with you about McStay he was trialled as a backman and failed dismally because he did not man up w him when needed. He seemed to play off him and was happy to take a mark and kick the ball but little else. So they moved him to the forward line where he can create a contest and palm off...

    What about Ballenden as a forward?

    I totally agree Birchall is an elite half back and has played many games and played in multiple premierships. He came to Brisbane for no cost and is a worthwhile risk although he has been injured. He is a best 22 player with elite kicking skills. I reckon he will be brought on slowly and will...

    Lions Season 2020

    Still only one captain and one vice captain which I like. So that’s the hierarchy. The other players are a mixture of experienced and up and comers which I think is great. It looks like they have two new leaders which is great because it gives new players an opportunity to stand up and deliver.

    Lynch has an interesting career as he played Centre half forward and kicked badly from memory kicked double the amount points as goals from set shots then the next year he played full back for Fitzroy and became an all Australian at a very young age. Soon after he was offered a 10 year contract...

    Lions Season 2020

    I am a little confused by the stats? Best midfield, 2nd worst forward line and middle of the road defence. I am puzzled how we won so many games? Are these stats are true reflection of how we played. My take on the year was that it was fabulous. We won most of the close games and should have...

    Prediction Our side round 1, 2020...?

    Totally agree what we want is a squad of players who can play in the 1sts. You want around 28 to 30 players. The NEAFL is really used to develop players who have AFL attributes but are not completely ready for the transition. The longer they play in the reserves the better because when they get...

    Training 2020 Preseason

    We have a few quick possible defenders which include Starsevich, Cox etc. Madden is super fast but to me doesn’t have the footy smarts yet. More of an athlete at the moment. I just think that we need to find a quick defender to lock down a quick forward. What coaches do is try to exploit our...

    I reckon they need to play a quick defender in the backline to lock down any speedy forward. To me this means Ah Chee should be trialled there.

    I have never seen Adams kick for goal so I have to believe you.

    Training 2020 Preseason

    My apologies my fellow Lions supporters I meant Adams not Payne. I am pretty sure Adams played centre half forward in Perth. He was recruited by the Bulldogs as a mature ager from memory. While playing AFL he has been used as a back man but I was thinking that because our backline has a number...

    Do you think Payne could play in the forward line like he did in Perth ? He has elite endurance and is a fantastic mark. Could play as a lead up forward ?

    I reckon you are spot on however I don’t know whether the coaching hierarchy will make too many changes with our side at the start of the year. I also really like Payne we will see how many talls they can fit in the side

    Training 2020 Preseason

    There are two players I really liked the look of last year in the NEAFL and that is Payne and Fullarton. Payne was a class above at this level and Fullarton was always impactful by making smart decisions when he got the ball. Looks like a natural forward and is clean below his knees probably...

    There is no reason why they can’t make finals again. They have a full list and the game style will be tweaked to be more competitive. I am hopeful that they play finals and win at least one game. To me that will be a pass mark.

    Lions Season 2020

    I agree they bought their A game to the finals. They were brave enough to bring the ball to the outside of the contest and bought the ball forward at speed. It made us look slow which isn’t the case but it worked for them the second half Of the year and they blew GWS away for the Grand Final...
