Archie Smith has informed the club that he intends to explore his options during this year’s trade period.

Archie would like to thank the Brisbane Lions coaches, players and fans for their support over the last 8 years that saw him play 16 AFL games for the club, and win 3 x NEAFL premierships.

After a particularly tough few years on and off the field, Archie looks forward to a fresh start beginning with his upcoming wedding to longtime partner Sophie next month.

We thank Archie for his contribution to the club and wish him well for his future endeavours.
