Exciting young gun Jaxon Prior has signed on with the Brisbane Lions until the end of the 2024 season.

The 21-year-old has been a versatile addition to the Lions side since moving across from WA in 2020 with his ability to be used across half back or on the wing.

Prior featured 12 times for Brisbane in 2022, including their thrilling Elimination Final win over Richmond where he had 12 touches and five marks.

‘Priz’ as he’s known around the Club, caught the eye of the competition in Round 10, kicking a career-high three goals against Hawthorn, highlighted by a launch from the boundary to keep his side in the game.

Brisbane Lions List Manager, Dom Ambrogio, said he’s looking forward to seeing Jaxon continue to develop his skillset at the Club.

“Jaxon is a popular team man amongst the Club who continues to develop in leaps each year. He’s very professional in the way he goes about things, and is on quite the upward trajectory.

We’re looking forward to having him in our group for a few more years.”

On his signing, the youngster said it was an easy decision.

“It’s an amazing feeling to sign on with the Club and it was a very easy decision,” he said.

“The Club took a punt on me late in the draft in 2019 and have got me to where I am today. I love the journey the group is on and to be a part of that for a couple more years is something I’m really looking forward to.”


Prior also applauded the staff and players for their support off-field as well as on.

“The players and staff aren’t only great on-field, they’ve been just as good off-field and have really helped my development as a person.”

And while it was a bittersweet finish to the 2022 season, he says the hunger is as big as it’s ever been heading into the new year.

“It obviously wasn’t the finish we were after, but this group has a hunger about them and there will be younger guys from the draft or players who haven’t had much opportunity come back better next year that will really drive us in our desire next year.

“Personally, I just want to continue to develop as a young leader for the young group of boys coming in.I remember looking up to guys in their third and fourth years when I first arrived at the Club, and to now be entering my fourth year I’m just focussed on growing as a person not only on the field but off it as well.”

Jaxon joins a bevy of other re-signings this off-season including Carter Michael, Blake Coleman, and Dayne Zorko.
