New Brisbane Lions coach David Fagan (pictured)  says he’s pleased with the way his young team is buying into his new game plan.

The Lions have been in Tasmania for their pre – season training camp and Fagan says getting away from the Brisbane heat took the pressure of his new look squad.

After years with the Hawthorn Footy club, Fagan says he believes the Lions are showing positive signs as he seeks to lead the former AFL powerhouse out of the wilderness in 2017.
