Brisbane Lions AFLW premiership players Ruby Svarc and Poppy Boltz have both committed to the Club beyond 2025.

The pair inked contract extensions during the offseason with Svarc penning a two-year extension while Boltz extends for one-year.

Boltz in just her first season at the Club had a dream year winning a grand final and playing a key role in a new-look defence.

Svarc, who notched 25 games for the Club enroute to her first AFLW premiership was ecstatic to be committing to the Club long term.

“I’m really excited to be staying in Brisbane for at least the next two years,” Svarc said.

“It is exciting because we have such a strong culture within the group, the program is really strong and it is the right fit for me and where I’m at with my footy.”

Boltz shared a similar sentiment to her teammate highlighting the fact that it had been a whirlwind start to her AFLW career.

“Last season was such a blur for me personally, I was drafted in April and then winning Grand Final in December, which is crazy,” Boltz said.

“To be able to go around again for the next two seasons at least and look forward to playing with this group of girls, is super exciting.”

AFLW senior coach, Craig Starcevich made note of the crucial roles both players have within the team.

“It is great to see both girls commit to the Club for the next couple of years,” he said.

“We are in a solid position as a team, so to have two players who play important roles within our group want to stay is an outstanding outcome for our program.

“Both players provide us with great athleticism and versatility on field and are also fantastic people off it which is something we value highly at the Brisbane Lions.”

The Brisbane Lions AFLW side will kick off their premiership defence in the final weeks of August with the AFL confirming the start of the 2024 NAB AFLW Season.
