Bell's return

4321301 bell-s-return

Just five months ago, Brisbane Lion Tom Bell heard his leg "snap" and looked down to see it pointing in one direction and his body another. 

Bell said he went into "shock" and described the thought of rehab as daunting.

Yet at the Club's first 3km time trial of the pre-season on Wednesday, the 26-year-old was already back near his aerobic best, finishing second behind Nick Robertson.

Bell said the broken leg and dislocated ankle he suffered against Greater Western Sydney in a June NEAFL game was every bit as bad as it sounded. 

"You hear a snap and look down and your leg is facing one way and your body the other," Bell told AFL Media.

"I just went into shock straight away.

"There was a bit of pain involved, but for an injury like that, it wasn't as much as I thought it would be. 

"Our physios stopped me from panicking and they were great, which I'm so thankful for."

Bell had to wait...

The Roar Deal: Draft Review

4318865 the-roar-deal-draft-review

Last Friday was a massive night for the Brisbane Lions’ recruiting team with a handful of top end picks up their sleeve. According to Recruiting Manager Stephen Conole everything ran smoothly on the night.

“It all went to plan,” Conole said.

“Overall, the way the Draft finished up was somewhat as we expected it would be.”

Conole joined Dom Fay and Michael Whiting on The Roar Deal podcast to review the 2017 Draft night and as Fay mentioned, the number one pick wasn’t the only great outcome from the night.

“There’s so many other new faces to take the pressure off Cam Rayner at number one,” Fay said.

“The interesting thing is that it seems that now he’s on the list, he’s just another player. He’s not the number one with the world of expectations on his shoulders”

Whiting was quick to agree, recognising that aside from the top Draftees, there were also some great traded players to join...

Whirlwind few days for Rayner

4317583 whirlwind-few-days-for-rayner

Rayner: It's been a whirlwind Number 1 Draft pick Cam Rayner is in Brisbane and spoke to the media today at The Gabba.

Cam Rayner woke to rain and storms on his first day in Brisbane, but it did nothing to wipe the smile off the face of the Lions' number one draft pick.

Rayner and fellow draftees Toby Wooller, Zac Bailey and Brandon Starcevich all landed in Brisbane on Tuesday afternoon and reported for light duties at the Gabba on Wednesday morning.

They met a number of their new teammates who were doing a weights session, including skipper Dayne Beams, and will join the entire squad later in the day for a relocated session at Nudgee College.

"It's a bit surreal walking into an AFL club, but all the boys have been really good. It's exciting and I can't wait to get stuck into it," Rayner said.

Ashmore lights up training

Ashmore is back and ready to go Kaitlin Ashmore is back in Brisbane and already smashing pre-season, coming home first in the team's 2km time trial on Monday.

First-season star Kaitlyn Ashmore has returned to pre-season training in great shape, dominating the 2km time trial at the Brisbane Lions' first session on Monday night.

Ashmore, a 26-year-old utility who splits her time between the midfield and half-forward, was a driving force behind the Lions making the inaugural NAB AFLW Grand Final.

And based on her first session, she'll be doing everything possible to take them one step further next season.

Ashmore established an early lead in the time trial conducted around Yeronga's main field, winning by close to 100m from Ally Anderson and tennis-convert Krystal Scott.

All Australian and Lions' best and fairest winner Emily Bates was also prominent.

Welcome back Cian Hanley

4315907 welcome-back-cian-hanley

The Brisbane Lions are pleased to welcome back Cian Hanley after he was granted special dispensation by the AFL to rejoin the Lions for a fourth year on the Category B Rookie list. 

Hanley was first signed by the Lions as an International Rookie at Pick No. 56 during the 2014 AFL Rookie Draft. 

Since signing with the Club, Hanley had an unfortunate run of injuries which saw him sidelined for his first two years. 

Hanley had a strong season with the NEAFL side this year, playing 16 matches and averaging 13 disposals per game.

He finished the year as a premiership player with the Lions NEAFL side and will benefit greatly from a full pre-season heading into 2018.

The Lions' General Manager of Football David Noble said he was keen to give Hanley another chance.

Welcome back Claye Beams

The Brisbane Lions have redrafted Claye Beams with the first selection in the 2017 AFL Rookie Draft. 

After making his debut in Round 1, 2011, Beams played 54 games for the Lions over seven seasons before being delisted in October.

Injuries have troubled Beams throughout his career but he displayed excellent form in the backend of 2017 at Senior level and in the NEAFL in leading the Lions to the premiership. 

Beams is a damaging runner off half-back with a penetrating kick and excellent vision. He played nine Senior matches in 2017 and averaged 14 disposals and kicked four goals. 

The Lions' General Manager of Football David Noble was thrilled to welcome back Beams. 

“Claye is a great role player for us in the team. He’s a terrific leader, a mentor and buys into the Club," Noble said.
