Sauce Merrett Says Tayla Harris Is 'Gone'

Former Brisbane Lions defender Daniel 'Sauce' Merrett has told Triple M's Rush Hour this afternoon that AFLW superstar Tayla Harris will not be at Brisbane next season.

Merrett was part of the coaching staff with Brisbane's AFLW team last season and has given up all hope of retaining the star forward. 

“Yeah she’s gone,” Merrett said when questioned about Harris' future.

“We’re trying to get something decent for her."

Sauce told Billy and JB that Harris was not enjoying her football and was more focused on her boxing career. 

“She said, you know, ’I’m sick of footy, I’m struggling at the moment and if I stay in Queensland I wont play, but if i go to Melbourne I wanna have one last crack at it’.

“Because she’s a boxer as well, and she’s a fierce boxer."
