Found this old article from a couple of years back. Both sad and funny in parts. I had never heard of this fellow before, pity he had to endure racism and it didn't work for him in the end. Also reminded me how much I love that particular shade of maroon.

SHANE O'Sullivan still shakes his head.

The then-Brisbane Bears general manager of football was hosting a teenage recruit, Tiwi Islander Adam Kerinaiua, when he woke in the middle of the night to a commotion.

Kerinaiua had no memory of it the following morning, but they figured out together he was sleep-talking in his native tongue.

Thats mighty impressive from Rich! 430 effective m out of 523m on avg per game.

and then I read on and Lachie Neale is leading the assisted metres gained :eek: (though they don't specify here if it is assisted effective meters gained*.. as they did for the earlier stat i guess not effective.. oh well)


I choose to read these stats with bias and accept they are the golden stats that prove eliteness. Well done Lions! :)

I've been wondering about that assisted metres gained for years. Very important for inside mids. Frustrating how many stats like that are hidden

Fun thread started on the main board- Your best team from players who played for other clubs after playing for the Lions, could be an interesting talking point.

I only selected from the Brisbane Lions era, did I miss anyone?

Sam Docherty, Mal Michael, Jed Adcock.
Jack Crisp, Joel Patfull, Pearce Hanley.

Matthew Leuenberger, Jack Redden, Dayne Beams.
Tom Rockliff, Elliott Yeo, Jason Akermanis.

Des Headland, Lachie Henderson, Luke Power.
Josh Green, Daniel Bradshaw, Mitch Clark.

Michael Rischitelli, Craig Bolton, Jared Polec, Jason Gram.

And Jarod Molloy or Matty Clarke.

Daniel Pratt also forged a good career after leaving Brisbane.

Why not Matty Pask:p

As for Caracalla, he shouldn’t count given he came from another club in the first place.
Oh man, I'm spending far too much time on the yoochoob. When I saw you mention Daniel Pratt, my first thought was this bloke
