Welcome to the Den, Noah Answerth

Welcome to the Den: Noah Answerth Noah Answerth has been selected at pick 55 to join the Lions.

Noah Answerth: 182cm, 82kg, 06/08/1999

  • Oakleigh Chargers junior and captain in 2018
  • Vic Metro representative
  • Versatile player able to play in defence or forward

Steve Conole, Recruiting Manager, says:

Noah is an Oakleigh Chargers junior who captained them this year.”

“Showed fantastic resilience to come back and play some really good footy for the Chargers and Vic Metro after fracturing his back in 2017.

“He’s a really competitive player and showed his versatility in the championships, playing as a shutdown defender and forward.”

With Pick No. 55 at the 2018 NAB AFL Draft, the Brisbane Lions have selected Noah Answerth.

Answerth captained the Oakleigh Chargers in this year’s TAC Cup competition and also played for Vic Metro.

In the TAC Cup grand final against the Dandenong Stingrays, he was incredible in a losing side with 27 disposals and six rebound 50s. 

He is extremely versatile and can play anywhere on the ground, although his best performances in 2018 came as a rebounding defender.

At the 2018 AFL Draft Combine, he impressed in the kicking test and running vertical jump.

He missed a large chunk of the 2017 season after fracturing his back and was overlooked in the draft.

Answerth joins former Chargers juniors Toby Wooller, Ryan Lester and Tom Cutler at the Lions.
