Leading from Behind – The Re-Rise of Harris Andrews

The drums started beating for the Brisbane Lions the moment Marcus Adams was ruled out for the season with the effects of concussion.

The defence was an issue, they said.

The personnel was not up to it, they said.

The club was going to leak goals, they said

Do you remember those opinions being bandied about by the AFL Media in the lead-up to the season?

Pepperidge Farm remembers, and so do I.

What are they saying now?

What these people, and many others, didn’t count on was the return to form of Harris Andrews as the General of the Brisbane back six. And not just a return to form, but perhaps career-best form.
