Crisp to Make Debut

Jack Crisp has surpassed AFL listed teammates to be named in Brisbane’s clash this weekend against the Gold Coast Suns at the Gabba.

The 190cm left footer was overlooked in 2011 National Draft, but was later selected by the Lions in the AFL Rookie Draft at number 40.

His hard work and determination over the preseason has resulted in the opportunity for him to make an AFL debut in his first year.

Crisp hails from Myrtleford in Victoria’s north and played his TAC Cup football at the Murray Bushrangers.

Several other 2011 TAC Cup players are continuing their new-found AFL careers this weekend:  

St Kilda vs Fremantle Dockers

Jack Newnes – St Kilda (Northern Knights)


Collingwood vs Port Adelaide

Jackson Paine – Collingwood (Sandringham Dragons)


Adeladie Crows vs GWS

Adam Tomlinson – GWS (Oakleigh Chargers)

Devon Smith – GWS (Geelong Falcons)

Adam Kennedy – GWS (Western Jets)
