The Great Southern’s latest AFL draftee Kalin Lane impressed in his VFL debut for the Brisbane Lions on Saturday.

Lane was selected in the mid-season draft by the Lions a fortnight ago, moved to Queensland last week and had his first training session with teammates last Monday.

He played a key role for his new side despite the Lions getting thrashed by 107 points at the hands of the Southport Sharks.

The 205cm Denmark-Walpole product split his time playing as a deep forward and in the ruck.

Lane kicked one goal from 13 disposals while taking four marks, laid three tackles and had 13 hit-outs.

Railways junior Jordan Clark pressed his claims for a recall to Geelong’s senior team after a strong display in the VFL.

The Cats went down by 33 points against the Footscray Bulldogs but the young wingman starred with 25 touches, eight marks and three goals.

In the WAFL, Royals’ Morgan Davies was among East Fremantle’s best as he helped them to a 26-point win over Perth.

Davies returned to the league team this week and picked up 20 possessions, a game-high 10 tackles, three inside-50s and two marks.

North Albany’s Jack Steel kicked 1.1 from 10 touches, three marks, two tackles and three-inside 50s for Perth.

Jye Clark, who hails from Railways, had 10 disposals, four tackles and two inside-50s.

Ongerup’s Angus Dewar was named in Subiaco’s best in their shock loss to West Coast.

Dewar had 15 touches and four marks as an intercept defender.

Royals tall Tom Edwards finished with eight disposals, three marks and two tackles for Swan Districts in their 46-point loss to West Perth.
