Robertson re-signs for two years

Nick Robertson Re-signs Nick Robertson has re-signed with the Lions for another 2 years.

On the eve of the 14th QClash, the Brisbane Lions have received a huge boost, with tough defender Nick Robertson re-signing with the Club for a further two years.

Roberston said there was no place he’d rather be.

"It feels good – I’m glad to sign and just get on with footy. I was always going to sign and I’m really happy the opportunity came to sign. I love Brisbane life," Robertson said. 

"It’s really positive this year. I feel the direction we’re heading in is very exciting. For our fans in particular, they should be very excited."

Born and raised in Western Australia, Robertson was drafted by the Lions with Pick No. 34 in the 2013 AFL Draft.

His endurance and aggression endeared him to Coaches immediately, and he would make his debut for the Club in Round 4 of the 2014 season against Port Adelaide.

In his second AFL game against Richmond, Robertson finished with 19 disposals, 6 marks and 3 tackles, showing plenty of potential for the future.

In 2017, Robertson has only missed one match and has played a key part in each of the Club’s victories.

✌️more years for @robbbo18! 🦁#AllForOne

Brisbane Lions General Manager of Football David Noble said Robertson is a key member of the Lions side moving forward. 

“The Club is thrilled to re-sign Nick Robertson for a further two years," Noble said. 

"His team first attitude and competitiveness has seen Nick add value to our team this year. 

"Nick’s signature is good news for the Club in its pursuit to be relevant again in the competition.”

Robertson said he has enjoyed his role down back this year and is looking forward to tomorrow's QClash. 

"We’ve got a good tight group down there. [Backline Coach] Murray Davis has been good for me this year, he’s always given us a clear head of what we need to do down back," Robertson said. 

"I’m sure there will be a few more re-signings soon. Everyone has been into the process and is jumping on board.

"It will be nice to get the win this week. The boys are all up and about and ready to go."

Robertson joins Tom Cutler, Jarrod Berry, Josh Schache, Harris Andrews, Ben Keays and Sam Skinner as recent Lions to have re-signed.
