Depends what you mean by break out?

Are we talking a young player who suddenly becomes a really good player? Or an already established player who suddenly becomes elite?

For us, Oscar Allen will become a solid WC name in 2019.

Real early but Im bullish on the 2 SA boys Rankine and Lukocious.

I feel like hes really tracking to having a big big year, but after only 8+ years Wattys finally going to take the comp by the scruff of the neck:D:p (if you cant hear my sarcasm by now, then soz)
Cumming hasn’t played a game yet..?

Izak Rankine
I think Sam Taylor has already broken out, in the sense he'smade it clear he's a best 22 defender and he has a rising star nom.

A meniscus tear ended his season. The medical report said he could have played, but jabbing a first year player and sending him out even somewhat hampered mightn't have been best for him long term. It can put pressure on a developing body in other areas.

Confident he'll play next year. Leon plays 4 tall backs, and he loves the flexibility to take different size opponents, which Taylor has.

A smoky for us is Ridley. I rate him very highly.

Standouts are;
Francis
McClug
Richards
Hipwood
Weideman

Other smoky;
Coffield

Langford and McGrath both look primed for midfield permanency too but I think they’ve both had breakouts of sorts already.

Zac Bailey, there were quarters late last year where he was the only lion firing. Very impressive for a first year kid. Think he has a surprising versatility, could cement a spot at any part of the ground.

Gallucci is another who fired late last year, think it’ll be another middling year for Adelaide with a few key players getting long in the tooth. But Gal to show it’ll be a quick bounce back.

Langford kinda already established as AFL quality but think he’ll improve significantly next year. I’ll go as far as to say likely to be in the first choice midfield rotation.

1. McLuggage
From a Giant: you've got plenty of silk at GWS to compaare him with Giant Pete.
From a trolling Magpie: 2002, 2003 has taught you a lesson, the insight has given you foresight; well done McOrist.
From a Bomber: the Baby Bomber era has taught you well blitzer.
From a Bomber: un_eggs you also know "Baby's" can win Flags.
From a Tiger: your word & your balls. I'll take your word on it tony_montana.

Make the Lions the Team you have a soft spot for when your not playing against them. The underdogs who have to compete with the NRL Brisbane Bronco's Machine. I loved it when Fitzroy was most peoples "2nd side", it gave me warm & fuzzies for all teams except Collingwood. Start hating Collingwood; if you already do then make it official. They are this Centuries GF bunnies of the Lions. While you follow your side passionately next season, enjoy the exciting brand of the #UNCAGED Lions in a special way when we play your rivals. Buy in for a little part of it. Invest in the excitement. For only $30 I think you can be an Official Lions Supporter & for an extra $25 you can receive a Birthday Card from your favourite Lions Breakout player. We turned the Magpies into Runners-Up twice this Century, more than anyone else. That's gotta get us some cred amongst you other 16 teams in the League. Get on now, buy into the Cinderella story! We want you. You'll love the ride.

I’ve never cringed harder in my life while reading a post
Good lad. 1 flag from 5 attempts this century. That's sensational You might be due for another flag by 2055 after another 6 or 7 losses. So that's 2 for the Lions & 1 each for the Cats & Eagles this century. Laddie, I'll be wearing Purple when the Dockers beat you & Red & Gold when the Sun's get their turn
2 Flags & 12 runners-up since 1958 isn't it? You even got a threepeat 79/80/81 & went Back to Back 2002/3. Your like a reverse Hawthorn or a reverse Crows. That's Gold.
Collingwood, truly the best Club to hate. They rarely let you down.

edit: felt awful when the ball bounced the wrong way for Milne. The Sainters would have won their only 2 flags beating Collingwood, both times by less than a kick.

Yeah Collingwood lose a lot of grand finals, but I tell you what we don’t do - miss the finals thirteen times in fourteen years and ride on glories from before the US invaded Iraq.

The only reason people are riding on Brisbane as their “second team” is out of pity. Sorry to shit on your parade but that’s all it is - pity. Footy fans love underdogs and back the strugglers and your team has been the biggest struggler of the last decade. Hopefully the pity support makes you feel good about supporting Brisbane but as an actual fan of club success, I’d rather a premiership and several rounds of finals runs over the last decade than have what your club dished up to it’s fans every week in that same time frame.

It’s funny you constantly refer back to those two grand finals and it’s funny because it’s literally you have - what have you done better since Collingwood since then? Nothing! Collingwood supporters don’t care about Brisbane in the slightest, your supporters and you in particular are desperate to maintain some kind of hatred between the two clubs (not sure why, after all your club won the premierships). Enter relevancy and have something to show for your last fifteen years and you might get some kind of rivalry going. All you are is dust in the wind.
