Lions need more from Rich: Leppa

  • Lions need more from Rich: Leppa

Brisbane coach Justin Leppitsch says the Lions need more from out-of-sorts midfield star Daniel Rich.

While hampered by a niggling ankle injury, the 25-year-old has been well below his usual output, averaging just 12 disposals in his last five games.

His struggles continued at the weekend in Brisbane's loss to the Western Bulldogs, with Rich collecting just two first-half touches and four contested possessions for the match.

Leppitsch, who criticised his team's on-field leaders after the Dogs defeat, admitted Rich's form hasn't been helped by a lack of positional consistency.
