Lions on the range with Glenn Rush, Josh Reid and Nick Rees.Lions on the range with Glenn Rush, Josh Reid and Nick Rees.

 

Several members of the Brisbane Lions AFL team showed their prowess on the rifle range during a visit to Belmont to help promote the Open Day coming up on Sunday, May 25.

They were thrown in the deep end at 1000 yards with a stiff breeze that would challenge the best shooters. Definitely candidates for the QRA All Stars when they come off their Lions contracts!

 

Glenn Rush, Josh Reid and Nick Rees were on hand with their rifles and gear and after a quick introduction they supervised the shooting action. It was a good chance to hone their wind reading skills.

Channel 10 attended and the story appeared that evening. Quest Newspapers took pics to highlight the Open Day in local papers.

The promotion was captured on a QRA-commissioned video and still pics which besides appearing on this website will be aired on social media.
