Lohman the Lion.

Post by F111 »

Mentioned (on AFL gettable) as someone we're interested in...if he wants to return to Victoria.
Anyone know anything about him?

Why not? He'd fit right in to the High Performance Hospital

AFL Media’s Cal Twomey believes Essendon are among Victorian clubs interested in Brisbane small forward Kai Lohmann.

The 20-year-old, who is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury, has played eight games for the Lions since making his debut in Round 5, 2022 and was initially picked up at pick No. 20 in the 2021 Draft


He has played 8 games and is under or well under average for all of his stats. He is listed as a forward who has managed only one goal in his 8 AFL games. Can mark, can crumb, but apparently doesn't chase.

However in his draft year, he came 4th in the 20m sprint ... so despite being known as "not a massive ball winner" and who needs to work on his "accumulation and off-ball work" from his drafting notes, he is the sort of athlete Dorodo loves.

Classic :lol:

At least our facilities are better equipped. For example, Zach Reid has been in an induced coma for 3 years…

I've seen plenty of fans that say he'd be a good get, but like s'dreams says, his stats are very poor - especially for a guy in a top 4 team with a stacked forward line already (meaning he wouldn't get a lot of attention).
6 games this year, average 7 disposals, and just one goal total.
It's a No from me.

Signed a 2 year extension with Brisbane.

Claimed it was a trip home to Ballarat that helped him make his decision (no doubt the weather)

He probably should thank us for bumping up his contract price.
