Brisbane Lions number 2 draft pick Josh Schache has re-signed with the club - after much speculation regarding whether he would return to Victoria.
The key forward will remain a Lion until the end of 2019.
“We’re extremely pleased to retain a player of Josh’s talent – at only 19 he has shown his ability to play at AFL level and his future is exciting,” said General Manager of Football David Noble.
Schache was touted as being on the radar of Richmond after coming out of contract at the end of 2017.
“Having been at the Lions for a couple of years and seeing where we are headed, I’m really excited about our future,” said Schache.
“I enjoy living in Brisbane and playing footy with a committed and hard working group.”
