Brown's plight won't distract Lions

Midfield coach Shane Woewodin says it’s been business as usual in the Brisbane camp, despite ongoing chatter about Jonathon Brown’s future.

Woewodin spoke at the Lions’ open training session at Patersons Stadium today, ahead of their clash with Fremantle tomorrow night.

Brown has been a major point of discussion in the AFL this week after suffering yet another concussion in Brisbane’s loss to GWS at the Gabba last weekend.

A decision on his future has yet to be made.

“It hasn’t been a talking point at all,” Woewodin said.

“Browny’s had a couple of days away from the club to get himself right and have some time to rest and spend some time with the family.

“We haven’t spoken about it.

“He has been around the club mentoring as he normally does every week with (young key forwad Michael Close) Closey and a few others so it’s business as normal.”

Woewodin conceded it was a huge task to take on the fifth-placed Dockers on their home deck.

“A big road trip, probably more for our young group to come across,” he said.

“A great experience though isn’t to come here a cauldron now for the Dockers for opposition teams to come across.

“We probably haven’t had as much success here in WA, so it’s a good chance for our group.

“It doesn’t matter where you play, you have just got to be on song on the day and if you don’t you get your pants pulled down no matter where you play.”
