The Brothers Beams

  • The Brothers Beams

Claye Beams hasn't really been a permanent fixture in the Lions squad since his debut in 2011.

Last year was his most prominent year, playing 13 games. But now, with his brother Dayne joining him at the Lions, has Claye Beams begun to assert his presence and cement a permanent spot in the Lions run on side week in/week out?

Only three rounds into the 2015 season Claye looks set to eclipse his most successful year to date.

Claye has been one of the surprising stand outs among the winless Lions pack. In only three games Claye has amassed 30 kicks, eight marks, 47 disposals, six tackles, 11 inside 50's and a behind.

Statistically he has found himself among the top 10 performers for the Lions so far this year. Brother Dayne though doesn't seem to be playing at his usual, industrious best. Dayne has been kept scoreless so far this year and only managed five marks.

However he has racked up 88 disposals, 11 tackles and 51 contested possessions.

Hopefully the Beams brothers can continue to energise and fizz off each other, because the Lions are floundering at the moment.

The loss of Pearce Hanley and Tom Rockliff and the complete absence of a tall target and bonafide goal kicker up front has clearly hurt the Lions.

The brothers Beams need to stand up and take the Lions by the scruff of the neck and play them back into contention.
