Ah Chee said both players’ years had been a key aspect in his excitement at joining the Lions.
“Watching those two guys really flourish with Brisbane was really good to watch and made me really excited to be part of it,” he said.
“Hopefully I can do the same thing and add a little bit of something to the Brisbane Lions.”
With four-time premiership-winning veteran Luke Hodge retiring at the end of last season, there is a spot available in Brisbane’s backline.
Already feeling he is reaping the rewards of changing his environment, Ah Chee says he will be pushing for selection for round one against Hodge’s old club Hawthorn at the MCG on March 22.
“The club’s got a really rich history, it’s good just coming in here and seeing all the past players that’ve come through and set a culture for the team,” Ah Chee said.
“It creates a really fresh environment for myself and it’s exciting to be a part of a team that’s really striving for something big this year.”
