Brisbane coach Justin Leppitsch says his young Lions need look no further than Mitch Robinson as a role model for making it in the AFL.

Robinson has been a shining light in a disappointing season for the Lions, regularly taking on the task of tagging the opposition's best player.

The 27-year-old faces another big job this weekend when the Lions travel to Melbourne to play Richmond with either Trent Cotchin or Dustin Martin to be the object of his attention.
