Hard-running winger Sophie Conway's performance in Brisbane's 55-point win over Sydney on Sunday epitomised exactly what the Lions are about.  

Covering a significant amount of ground, her want to get forward and attack is important, but equally important is her willingness to get back and support her teammates in defence.  

The Lions work rate was on display from the opening bounce with their ferocity highlighted by the tackle count, winning 74 to 55. 


Inside forward 50 was where the Lions were at their defensive best recording 17 tackles to five for the game. 

Finishing the game with three goals, 17 disposals and four intercepts, she was rewarded for her hard work, as were the Lions. 

Conway has booted six goals from three outings and has started the season on fire with disposals, tackles and goals per game all higher than her career average.
