“Super talent”: Zorko excited after Lions draftee dominates intra-club clash


Brisbane may have unearthed another dangerous forward option with draftee Logan Morris kicking five goals in an intra-club match on Friday.

Morris, who was taken at pick No. 31 in last year’s draft is a 191cm medium forward with strong hands and ability to play taller than his measured height.

Lions veteran Dayne Zorko was impressed with the young talent’s performance and confirmed that some of his goals came on co-captain and two-time All-Australian Harris Andrews.

“He kicked four or maybe five even, so he looks like a super talent,” Zorko said on SENQ Breakfast.

“All the draftees we picked up this year - minus Reece Torrent - all played on Friday and did a fantastic job.

“We've seen their development already in only a short amount of time and Logan has been an absolute standout in that area and he put it into practice on Friday.

“I mean, he was playing on no slouch in Harris Andrews. So, to go down there and kick some good goals, he’s a very exciting prospect there for the future of the Brisbane Lions.”

Morris was drafted out of the Western Jets, but Zorko says he’s settled in really quickly after arriving from Melbourne.

“He's a Victorian boy and has fit in really well,” Zorko said.

“I mean, you're always weary of that homesickness sort of factor but he's come up and I think has just fit in so well.

“He's got a little bit of x-factor about himself as well, a little bit of spunk.

“He's an exciting prospect for our future, no doubt about that.

Morris was Brisbane’s second pick in the 2023 Draft behind Oscar Ryan (pick No. 27). The Lions also selected Luke Lloyd (pick No. 42), Zane Zakostelsky (pick No. 51) and Reece Torrent (pick No. 64).
