Introduction

Rohan Bewick is a hard-running player with a penetrating kick who tasted senior WAFL action before joining the Lions as part of a trade with the Gold Coast at the end of the 2010 season.

Background

• Rohan Bewick - the nephew of former Essendon premiership player Darren - played his junior football in Western Australia and eventually graduated to West Perth's senior side in the local WAFL competition in 2010.

• He was selected in the West Australian State squad, but suffered a leg injury which forced him to miss the State game.

• After the injury, he returned to West Perth where he produced an outstanding finish to the WAFL season. He averaged 20 disposals per game including a career-high 32 possessions against reigning WAFL premiers Subiaco. 

• At the Draft Combine, he grabbed the attention of AFL recruiters with a range of impressive testing results including a 14.7 shuttle run and a 10 minute 18 second 3km time trial. 

• The Brisbane Lions secured Bewick at the end of 2010 as a Previously Nominated or Previously Listed Player from the Gold Coast in a complex trade which saw Jared Brennan join the Suns and a host of draft picks exchanged.

Season by Season

Season by Season

• Bewick was the Lions' fourth highest goal-kicker throughout the Club's pre-season campaign, and was a member of the breakthrough NAB Cup premiership side.

• Playing largely across half-forward, he played a personal best 19 senior matches, and spent the other three as the team's emergency.

• He booted 15 goals for the season, and equalled his career-best with three against Carlton in Round 9 at the Gabba.

• Bewick was selected in the Lions’ senior team for their Round 1 match against Melbourne, but after a couple of modest outings, he was sent back to the Lions Reserves side for the next five weeks.

• He was recalled in Round 8 to face the GWS Giants – making the most of his opportunity with 24 disposals and six marks.  

• Bewick proceeded to play in 14 of the next 15 senior matches, which included a personal best stretch of 10 consecutive games between Round 8 and Round 18. 

• He seemed to find his niche up forward, where his strong overhead marking and lethal left foot proved a dangerous combination. He kicked at least one goal in 12 of his last 13 matches – including a career best haul of three against Adelaide in Round 21.

• His 18 goals for the season came at an average of 1.1 per game, ranking him equal fourth on the Club’s 2012 goal-kicking tally. 

• An improved second AFL season saw Bewick take his career games tally to 28, and finish a personal best equal 15th on Club Champion night.

• After impressing the Lions' coaching staff throughout the pre-season competition, Bewick was selected to make his senior AFL debut in the Club's season opener against Fremantle at the Gabba.

• He collected 15 disposals and kicked a goal in a solid debut game, and backed it up the following week in the team's loss to the Western Bulldogs with a career-high 23 possessions. 

• He was used effectively as the 'sub' in Round 3 against Melbourne at the MCG, and amassed 13 disposals and five marks in just over a quarter of football.  

• But after landing awkwardly on his back early in the Lions' Easter Thursday match against St Kilda in Round 5 at the Gabba, Bewick missed the following two weeks.

• He returned in Round 8 against Essendon and went on to play in eight of the next nine senior matches, before ultimately being sent back to play in the NEAFL with the Lions Reserves.

• He finished his debut season with 12 senior games - which was the most by any of the Club's 11 debutants in 2011.
