New Brisbane Lions recruit Charlie Cameron has touched down in Brisbane and admits he’s itching to get started with pre-season training.

Cameron met with his new teammates and was shown around the Club’s facilities after being traded to the Lions from the Crows during the final moments of the Trade Period last week.

The 23-year-old admits he was nervous he would remain in Adelaide in 2018.

“I was speaking to my manager, with 20 minutes to go and I was like ‘is this going to get done?’. I was a bit nervous and then when it got done I was so happy,” Cameron told lions.com.au.

The excitement machine was desperate to return to Brisbane to be closer to family and...

AFL staying coy

The AFL has remained coy on the immediate future of AFLX, despite confirming a reduced pre-season fixture for 2018 that could accommodate the shortened new format of the game.

The men's JLT Community Series has been reduced to two matches for each club over a three-week period, creating space for standalone NAB AFL Women's games and the potential introduction of AFLX.

Asked on Thursday if fans would see AFLX played this pre-season, AFL general manager of clubs and broadcasting Travis Auld said: "You may, we're just not sure yet. Watch this space".

"AFLX is something we've been talking about for some time now and we're still in the process of developing," Auld said.

"We're not really in a position to formalise both the format and when we might program AFLX games or a carnival."

AFLX is a shortened seven-a-side format, with 10-minute quarters and no centre bounces. Play is re-started...

Blair a competitior

Blair beyond stoked Ruby Blair cannot wait to get a game with the girls she idolised watching in the AFLW league. Ruby was pick number 41 in the AFLW Draft and is a great intercept mark and can use the ball well off the half back.

Lions draftee Ruby Blair has always been a competitor, just ask her older brother Miller. Whatever Miller would do, Ruby wanted to do it too.

When Miller decided he was going to build a tree house with a plank between branches, Ruby was inspired to build a much larger ‘tree palace’ out of bamboo.

“I guess I’ve always loved to prove that I could do it,” said Blair.

The Brisbane Lions have Miller to thank, in a roundabout way, because if he hadn’t decided he wanted to play footy, then maybe Ruby might not have followed him to the Palm Beach Currumbin Lions Juniors.

“I think that’s why I started playing footy in the first place, all the way back when I was...

Seven extend

The Brisbane Lions have today announced that seven promising young players have extended their commitment to the Club.

Jacob Allison, Archie Smith, Corey Lyons, Oscar McInerney, Mitch Hinge, Jake Barrett and Matt Eagles have all signed contract extensions with the Lions. 

Hyundai Help for Kids Lions Academy product Jacob Allison made his debut in Round 19 in Western Australia this year. Tall, fast and paired with a penetrating right boot, the 19-year-old impressed and held his position for the Lions’ remaining five games of the 2017 season. 

Allison will continue playing for Lions until at least the end of the 2020 season.

“It’s a great feeling. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Allison said.

“Next season I want to continue improving to become a better footballer. I will do whatever I can to cement my spot in the Senior list."

Eagles' journey continues

Triple premiership forward Jonathan Brown's brother is responsible for igniting the fire under Brisbane Lions success story and former excavator operator Matt Eagles.

The Lions inserted legitimacy into Eagles' extraordinary AFL journey on Friday when they revealed they were retaining 2016's The Recruit winner on their rookie list for next year.

He will remain a category B rookie, but his advanced age – he turns 28 in February – suggests coach Chris Fagan believes he can make a senior impact next year, possibly alongside Harris Andrews.

Eagles was playing for Brisbane-based Yeronga, where he kicked 116 goals in 31 games, when clubmates Matt Brown and Tim Notting, the 208-game former Lion, asked him in no uncertain terms: "What the hell are you doing?"

The dreadlocked 200cm giant subsequently applied for the Fox Footy program, and the rest is history.
