Why the Brisbane Lions Nailed it With This Powerful Video Used In Their Women’s League Bid
The Brisbane Lions have submitted a powerful and spine tingling video as part of their bid to be a part of the inaugural 2017 AFL National Women’s League.
The video centres on Queensland football star Tayla Harris who provides a moving monologue as she moves out of the dressing rooms, up the tunnel and onto the hallowed turf of the Gabba.
Harris plays for the Zillmere Eagles and describes growing up playing with the likes of current Lions Harris Andrews and new draftee Ben Keays.
“But as we grew up their dream could become more of a reality, ” Tayla says in the clip.
“Their extra effort in the gym and on the field seemed to mean that little bit more, while the sacrifices made by myself and by my family seemed to matter that little bit less…until now.”
“Now the prospect of entering a women’s league at the peak of my career is within my grasp, and the game will change forever.”
There are just 8 licences available for the inaugural season of the AFL National Women’s League and 13 clubs vying for the opportunity to be a foundation club in the competition.
The likely make up of the competition will see licences spread among the participating states with four expected to be awarded to Victorian clubs and one each for South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.
The Lions are the only Queensland club applying for a licence with the overall decision expected to be finalised by the end of May.
