The wait continues
Waiting patiently and anxiously at home for that extra special day to roll around is an experience many of us have had before.

It’s been a long road to recovery and set to be a little longer for Lions star Sam Virgo but she is taking steps in the right direction. 11 days after her op, she is no longer in need of the knee brace and is getting stronger every day.
Everyone is wishing her all the best with her recovery and hoping it stays on track.
On the Coffee Run with Simon Black

Ruby Blair was recently selected in the draft to play for the Brisbane Lions Women’s team and had her brother to thank. She followed his every move as kid, even to the Palm Beach Currumbin Lions juniors where her football career began.
Ruby’s brother Miller is her biggest supporter and joined in the chorus of online congratulations showered on the young Lions prospect.
