Brisbane forward James Polkinghorne has decided to stay at the Gabba.
The 24-year-old requested a trade to a club in his native Victoria towards the end of the 2013 home-and-away season, but has been convinced to remain at the Lions by new senior coach Justin Leppitsch.
“Polks had a chat to Leppa the other
day and he is staying. He’s happy to stay,’’ Lions football manager Dean Warren said.
Polkinghorne has played 92 senior games but fell out of favour in 2013 and made just 11 appearances.
