It's been 20 years since the Brisbane Lions completed their three-peat, with the famous side of 2003 now going their separate ways.

Continually referred to as one of the tougher, smarter sides in the game's history, many have gone on to still have an impact in the AFL.

So, where are they now?

Craig McRae

Has been a breath of fresh air for Collingwood, winning 25 games since starting as coach of Collingwood last year. He bolstered the 17th-placed Magpies in 2021 up to fourth in 2022, featuring in the preliminary final against the Swans last season. Currently has the Pies sitting pretty in top spot after 10 rounds.

Michael Voss

Has been the talk of the town recently given the increasing pressure on his job as Carlton coach. Took over from David Teague in 2022, winning 15 games from 28 so far and fell just short of finals last season.

Chris Scott

Has been the most impressive coach to come from the three-peat team, winning 203 games out of a total of 292 with two premierships to his name.

Brad Scott

Just this year took over the role of Essendon coach and is currently 5-5. Spent a decade with North Melbourne as senior coach before a move to AFL House.
