Coach: Craig Starcevich

2020 captain: Emma Zielke

2020 best and fairest: Emily Bates

2020 in a nutshell: Started like a house on fire with three wins and a draw in the first month. Fell to Carlton in an away semi-final clash.

New players: Taylor Smith (Gold Coast), Courtney Hodder, Zimmorlei Farquharson, Ruby Svarc, Indy Tahau, Beth Pinchin

Notable departures: Arianna Clarke (retired)

Inactive players: Gabby Collingwood (injured), Sharni Webb (pregnant)

2021 opponents: Richmond (a), Geelong (h), GWS (a), Melbourne (h), Gold Coast (a), Adelaide (h), Fremantle (h), Collingwood (h), West Coast (a)

Circle it: The Lions will play at the Gabba for the first time in history in round eight when they host the Magpies.

Player to watch: Courtney Hodder was a junior sensation in Western Australia before successfully switching to rugby. She's back with footy now and is lightning quick with great evasion and should add real spark to Brisbane's forward half.

Best Rising Star chance: Isabel Dawes
