Where is Lyons going pretty sure he’s contracted
He's not going anywhere per se, however, unless his form picks back up I'd be surprised if he is best 22 quality next year. He's barely best 22 quality this year, looks like age has caught up to him quickly. He has lost a bit of pace and considering he was already slow by AFL standard he simply couldn't afford too.

If you look back at all my posts on this shitty subject directed towards Lachie, I have always said that they are happy here and not going anywhere. 90% of all this was created by gutter journalism and pessimistic supporters.

Easy there Mr cranky pants, was just a light hearted post. Sheesh. I'm more than aware you have always stated that the Neale's were happy in Qld, never doubted you, nor have I ever posted anything nasty about Lachie & Jules.

So why don't you stop shouting me down.

Edit: This post isn't overly serious either btw. Especially the last line. Feels like I have to keep saying that more than I should around here.

As far as I was aware most of us were desperate to keep Lachie . And generally disbelieved what was being put up in the press.

Just hopeful and waiting to see what happened.

Didn't see huge negativity here. Although some always get emotional and carried away.

I also don't see it as gutter journalism to say he was weighing up his options. Which he was.

I would suggest that giving Lachie an extra couple of years may be part of a bigger move to allow us to smooth his contract and create more money for McStay.

Considering that they have pulled the Neale deal off, I wouldn't be surprised if McStay re-signs in the next six weeks.

Or McStay’s inevitable exit freed up cap space to get Lachie over the line, possibly by giving us the opportunity to recruit more midfield help for him.

Lachie will get the Captaincy.

And the promise of more support . Perhaps we're confident re Ashcroft ?

Or maybe Lachie just loves the club and is very happy here.

Or all of the above. Hopefully.

Do we try and lure Brandan Parfitt to the club? We need a strong bodied, contested ball winning mid to replace Lyons and support Neale.

Love this.

Have you watched much of Jaspa Fletcher briz, wondering if you think he would be an upgrade on those wings you mentioned... then there is always Harry Sharp if he develops well. Do you know much about the academy boy S.Brain, I can't find much about him online.
I haven’t watched a lot of Fletcher. I know he played more inside as a junior, and he moved outside when he stepped up to senior QAFL level.

The only question I have is his overhead marking, because I haven’t seen a lot of him.

He’s a good kick, will put his body on the line, has a high footy IQ (thanks dad) l, he’s fast, but not express speed fast.

I’m not sold on Sharp yet. Has a lot to work on football wise.

I don’t know anything about Brain. He looks like a unit though.

It’s so hard to find out anything to do with the academy kids.

So far we have mentioned Hopper, Dunkley and Parfitt as support for Neale.

I think Dunkley would be too expensive trade and contract wise though.

There has been plenty of chat about Hopper over the years in our boards, but when he was up for contract last time, we thought we had a better version developing in JBerry. Dlanod thinks he is a good runner.

I remember being keen on Parfitt after the 2020 finals loss to Geelong. I wonder what his running is like?
