Allen Christensen will play on in 2020 after the Lions handed him a one-year contract extension on Tuesday.

Christensen will enter his sixth season with the club, and has 68 games to his name as a Lion.

“We were impressed by the way Allen responded in the NEAFL side,” Brisbane's General Manager of Football David Noble told the club's website.

“He fought his way back into the AFL side and was determined to keep improving his game. When he returned to the senior side, the effort spoke for itself.

“We look forward to seeing what he will bring in 2020.”
