The Brisbane Lions are keeping a close eye on Collingwood defender Jack Frost, according to

Frost, who is out of contract, did not play a senior game after Round 12 this season, despite consistent performances at VFL level.

He is one of several key defenders being looked at by the Lions, who are in desperate need of additional talls in the back half, after conceding a competition high 18.1 marks inside 50 per game in 2016.

Frost is currently involved with the VFL side in finals, but may well be open to the idea of a trade from the Magpies, with the 24-year-old not appearing to be in coach Nathan Buckley’s plans.

The 195cm key position player has made 54 appearances for the Magpies since being recruited via the rookie draft in 2013.


  1. Don’t go Jack! Don’t join that shambles of a club and spend the next 5 years down the bottom of the ladder. Just ask Beamsy who joined an absolute rabble. The pies will without doubt be top 4 next year and contend for a flag with a dynasty certainly starting in 2018. You are much better off being in the Pies dynasty than at that rabble of a club. Everyone knows Frosty battled injuries this year but he will bounce back and play finals with the mighty Pies next year!
