Beams BOMBSHELL Rocks The AFL Trade Period

Oct 11, 2018


Brisbane Lion Dayne Beams is reportedly looking to return to Collingwood just weeks after he promised teammates he wasn’t going anywhere.

Damian Barrett has told Trade Radio:

"Dayne Beams loves the Brisbane Lions, he loves everything about the Brisbane Lions, there are just reasons now why he doesn't want to be there.

"He's not disgruntled with anyone at the club and he's not disgruntled with the club itself, but he does want to break the contract that he's got and return to Collingwood.

"It's only the Collingwood Football Club that he would explore the possibilities around returning to."

In September Beams told teammates at the Brisbane best and fairest he considered returning to Victoria but ruled it out.

"I've thought about going back to Melbourne and those discussions happened, and I'm not going to lie to you, I had those thoughts in my head," Beams said at the time.

"The one thing I kept coming back to is this group and you blokes -- I bloody love you, I really do.

"The last six months have been unbelievable. I've been able to connect with you on such a deeper level.

"I can't wait to see us progress as a footy team and a footy club and I know success is just around the corner.

"That was a really driving factor in me wanting to stick around.

"I love where we're going and I love you boys, so thank you very much."
