Jarryd Lyons ready to be #Uncaged

The Brisbane Lions are thrilled to land the signature of delisted free agent Jarryd Lyons, who arrives at the Den from the Gold Coast Suns.

Lyons will significantly boost the Club’s midfield group, as he has proved himself to be excellent in clearance work.

The 26-year-old’s game style and age bracket compliments the Lions’ trade strategy of acquiring 23-26 year-old midfielders with exceptional hands.

Lyons comes to the Lions on the first day of AFL Delisted Player Free Agency Period after being delisted by the Suns yesterday.
