Allison is likely to end up at Brisbane, as he is in the Brisbane Lions/Queensland academy.

He received All-Australian honours last year as a 17-year-old, however, he has failed to reach the heights of 2015 this season.

His size and athleticism makes him a versatile player. He can play as a tall defender, or even drift forward and bag a few goals, while he has also been used in the midfield at times.

He also has a powerful, penetrating right boot and can lay a strong tackle.

However, his improvement has stagnated this season, making it unclear exactly where a bid will come for him.
