After a disappointing 2015, the Lions will be looking to put the past behind them and look towards the future. They welcome new stars Josh Schache, Ben Keays, Eric Hipwood and Ryan Mathieson, as well as recruits Tom Bell and Ryan Bastinac. The pressure will be on coach Justin Leppitsch to get the best out of this group.
Lions fans will hope to see the development of their youngsters, as well as an exciting brand of footy that will start bringing a crowd to the GABBA. The departure of Jack Redden and James Aish will put more pressue on existing stars Tom Rockliff, Dayne Zorko, Pearce Hanley, Daniel Rich and Dayne Beams to lead the way for this young list in 2016.
Predicted Finish: 12th – 16th
