According to AFL.com.au reporter Marc McGowan, Brisbane Lions midfielder Nick Robertson has attracted interest from rival clubs, with the GWS Giants, in particular, said to be interested in the 24-year-old.

Robertson, who was selected with the 34th pick in the 2013 AFL draft by the Lions, has gained a reputation for his aggressive nature since being drafted. After a positive start to his career, Robertson has struggled to cement a regular spot in a Brisbane team exceeding expectations in 2019, only managing just the four games for the season so far.

Robertson is a restricted free agent at the end of the 2019 season and will attract interest.

“He’s perennially been the 23rd man, the emergency,” McGowan said on the Trade Desk on AFL.com.au.

“We all know he’s a high-intensity player, a run-with guy.

“There is interest from multiple clubs and I believe the Giants are one of those.

“It seems an odd fit because they’ve got Matt De Boer, but from what I’m being told they don’t necessarily see him just as filling that role.

“He might be able to fill some other roles and with a guy like (Brett) Deledio moving on… (Robertson is a) really competitive guy and might fit in nicely.”

Robertson has played 72 games across his career, averaging 15.4 disposals and 4.4 marks per game.
