Brisbane have thrown discarded Blues midfielder Mitch Robinson an AFL lifeline, signing the hard man on a two-year deal.
Carlton axed Robinson after he was involved in a late night Melbourne CBD brawl that left him with an broken eye-socket.
The 25-year-old was also suspended three times in 2014 for on-field indiscretions, but the Lions are confident of using his aggression as a positive.
“Mitch is one of the guys who always attacks the footy 100 per cent,” Lions recruiting chief Peter Schwab said of Robinson
“He’s super-competitive and consistently puts his head over the footy.
“Mitch brings a real aggression to our midfield and we are confident that if he can harness that aggression and get a good preseason under his belt, he can have an impact on our side.”
Robinson joins Dayne Beams and Allen Christensen as key signings made by the Lions this off-season.
