Brisbane Lions’ great Jonathan Brown praised the Premiership Demon Angus Brayshaw for his brave diving mark in the third quarter of his side’s Grand Final victory over the Western Bulldogs.
Brayshaw was the first to jump into traffic to mark the inside of the 50 in the third quarter of the clash, and then truly kicked the goal to regain the demon’s lead in an important play.
Brown spoke of Foxfooty and praised Brayshaw’s efforts after the 57-year drought-breaking flag victory in Melbourne.

“It’s one of the most courageous actions I’ve seen in Foote Field,” said the Triple Premiership Lion.
“I was only afraid of the angels trampling. I just thought it was an incredible sign of courage. That’s why you deserve the Premiership winner.”
Brayshaw finished the game with a disposition of 536 meters to 26 gained and won the highlight of his performance with the courageous mark and goal of 25 years old.
It comes after a strong season from the previous pick 3. And he switched to a more team-oriented role with Tsubasa.
“For me, that was what was best for the team,” Brayshaw told Fox Footy after the match.
“I’m happy to be able to do whatever the team needs to win. I left it all there tonight.
“I spent a lot of effort on a goal kick, but it didn’t happen. I kicked it tonight (and) it made a lot of sense to me.”
Brashaw praised his side for sticking to the task, as critics may have doubted whether the demon could return to the game when the demon dropped 19 points in the third quarter. ..
“I’m very proud that our group can stick to fat and come back. We are all very confident in each other in their role.” He said.
“We can see that the amount of work we all have spent, everyone is sacrificing. We see the past players of the supporters who have been struggling for 57 years.
“It’s hard to put everything in words … I feel fulfilled. It’s very special for our club.”
