Key Trio Re-Sign

The Brisbane Lions have re-signed key trio Pearce Hanley, Stefan Martin and Mitch Robinson in a massive show of faith in the future direction of the footy club.

Vice-Captain Hanley, who was already contracted until the end of 2017, has put pen to paper for an additional two years on top of that, his freakish skills and devastating running game set to light up the Gabba.

Form ruckman Martin – a joint-winner of the this year’s Merrett-Murray Medal with Robinson, Dayne Beams and Dayne Zorko – was contracted to the end of 2016 but has moved early to  sign a three-year contract extension on top of that.

Midfielder Robinson, who has been a revelation since joining the Lions from Carlton last season, has signed a two-year deal keeping him at the Lions until the end of 2018.

“It’s a strong show of faith in the Lions that these guys  wanted to continue with this group and influence the direction our Club is heading,” said Brisbane Lions General Manager of Football, Matt Francis.
