Geelong’s Lincoln McCarthy has made the move to the Lions, and will join Brisbane on a three-year deal.

Geelong will send McCarthy along with their third-round (currently 54) and fourth-round picks (currently 57), while Brisbane will send their third-round (currently 42) and fourth-round picks (currently 60).

“The Club has had a strong focus on bringing quality players and people in the age range of 23-26 years of age. Lincoln McCarthy fits that brief and has certainly been a player of interest for us over the past 12 months,” Brisbane’s General Manager of Football David Noble told the club’s website.

“Lincoln brings a range of skills we can use both through the midfield and as a pressure forward.

“His ability to mark the ball for his size also provides the versatility we are looking for, with our players being able to move through various positions.

“We are very pleased that Linc and his partner Tayla have selected our Club as the place they wish to continue their journey together.

“We are excited about continuing to grow our list for the coming years.”
