But the Tasmans, who are shy about the 300 milestones in 33 and 13 games, aren’t sure if the Lions will play next season if they want to keep him.

Birchall has been punished 18 times by Lions One point semi-final defeat Losing to the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night forced Chris Fagan’s team to exit the second straight set in three seasons.

“It’s terribly simple. I lost 3 points in the semifinals two years ago, but I lost 1 point tonight,” Fagan said.
“We’re moving away from qualifying three times in a row with a really young group. I can’t stop people from saying what they say, they look at that record, It’s 1 win and 5 losses in the final.
