Yeah there's definitely a few DFAs that have done well. I can't see Keays having the success of someone like Membrey, Robinson or Lyons at their new club, but he's still young, at leastProbably McKernan if talking specifically the rookie draft.
If you're also taking into consideration all delistings, I'd have (since McKernan):
- Jarryd Lyons (from GC to Brisbane)
- Trent McKenzie (from GC to Port)
- Ricky Henderson (from Adelaide to Hawthorn)
- Matthew Wright (from Adelaide to Carlton)
- Tim Membrey (from Sydney to St Kilda)
- Joel Hamling (from Geelong to Western Bulldogs)
- Mitch Robinson (from Carlton to Brisbane)
Hope you are right, still pretty young so if there's more growth ahead there's probably a pretty solid role player there. Been impressed with his whole season, especially early on when most of our side was junk and he continued to put the 2nd and 3rd efforts in.Just wanted to say, as you're probably already aware by now, that you guys have got a good one here. Always loved the way Keays has gone about it, plays hard and fair. Was annoyed whenever he got a game for us he was stuck in the forward 50 having minimal impact, felt he had more to offer. Great to see him getting a fair crack at it with you guys and thriving.
Reckon he'll only improve from here.
He was honestly one of our better players week in week out when we were getting smashed 0-13 period, says a lot about him. Obviously has great character in him, does he have any leadership abilities? Can see him becoming a leader at our club.Just want to say thank you on behalf of all Brisbane Lions fans for taking on Ben Keays.
He never got a proper chance at the Lions, but as an academy kid, he was always considered “one of us”.
