    That's the Aspley Juniors complex at Brendale which has just been redeveloped?

    Yup, not sure how parking will go. From memory most people used to park where the main field is now.

    I read that some Lions Academy matches will be aligned to the fixture, but they're not actually ON the fixture. Are they usually before or after the Reserves game?

    Near Maps Aerial view as of 26/9/16 ...... looks like there may be additional parking east of the ground by the start of the next season (just guessing though - this area still under construction).

    Liked the games at Cooparoo for closeness sake to my house and the Gabba but it have to be a better ground set up.

    I don't see Robertson in the best 22 until he either starts winning it on the inside or starts hurting opposition more on the outside. McStay plays ahead of him.

    Barrett would be a fair bit ahead of Robertson. Gets it on the inside and can use it on the outside.

    i am an unabashed fan of Nick Robertson's "potential" although i agree it hasn't been fulfilled yet. he's OOC at the end of 2017 so it is a make or break year for him. if he gets into the team early next year he will probably have 3-6 games to prolong his AFL career.

    Don't know, they play different positions for a start. But it is a classic pure talent vs work ethic and resilience. They are both important to us if they can take a step forward

    I wouldn't write him off too quickly. Yes he is frustrating but he brings intensity and hard two way run, he just needs to find his feet at the top level. The only way that happens is through some continuity

    There are 3 others on the bench who can play the same role as Robertson.

    At this stage he only brings endurance to the team similar to Dalziell did. Maybe he's been poorly managed but we haven't seen him develop anything to separate himself from the other also rans. He can't play back or forward, inside or outside midfield at AFL level. I think Nick and Fagan and the other coaches need to work out what type of footballer he is going to be and they can work towards that.

    Nrobbo and lewy are the two hard runners in the team. Nrobbo should be looking to pin down a wing or high pressure hff

    completely agree with the bolded, i see him as an outside wing/mid type gut running up and down the flanks. i have watched him closely in a few live games at the gabba and his biggest fault is he panics under pressure which was in most cases perceived pressure not actual, he has more time than he thinks he does on a lot of occasions IMO.

    Correct and he just loses composure at full 100% when 95% is enough to get him clear and enable him to have a good disposal

    Just going through the fixtures to see how they line up. In the first half of the season, we play 5 games in a row 'away', and chuck in a couple of byes and there's an 8 week gap between home games (NEAFL).

    Matching them up to senior home games and the time constraints of sitting in general admission at the Gabba, means I will only be able to make it to 4 reserves games next year (one of those 'away' at Aspley). Gee I'd love it if they played more often on different days to the seniors.

    I am indeed, lionshine. I'm expecting our seconds to be very big improvers this year after the past three years of befuddlement.
