LIONS ACADEMY SQUAD ANNOUNCED
The Wide Bay will now have it's own Academy, training once a week for all the year outside of the rep season for that age. Geoff Ebert has been announced as the coach after 10 years service with representative squads. The first intake of 12-14 year olds is attached and some 15 year olds will be added soon. With the Gold Coast having priority picks for the next couple of years, the Lions will focus on those that will be draftable after then. The players have been selected by the Lions and more than anything, they have been selected on their performances in their representative games. Tom King and Oscar Junker were also added but will be moving to Victoria so will be unavailable. We do wish them the best of luck next year!!
