If it’s something new you are looking for from the Lions in 2014 you’re in luck. What we have in store for you:
• A wave of new players – including top draftee James Aish, as well as Trent West (Geelong), Jackson Paine (Collingwood) and Luke McGuane (Richmond)
• A newly appointed lion-hearted football director in Leigh Matthews
• A clear, new direction in the coaching department led by Justin Leppitch
• A new look board with a revitalised vision for the club
All of that seems promising with AFL in Queensland building. The QClash in Round 3 shapes as a defining one between big brother and our coast dwelling little brother just down the highway.
The Lions start is a tough one. They face reigning premiers Hawthorn (away) and Geelong (at home) before the chance to take first points as the no.1 team in Queensland.
So Lions fans – what can we expect heading into 2014?
Will there be improvement?
Or will 2014 be another grinding year?
