AFL 2020 | Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan wants six-man benches for rest of season


Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan has called on the AFL to expand interchange benches to help alleviate the injury risk to players during the compromised 2020 season.

Fagan fears injury rates could increase on the back of disjointed and shortened preparations for the June 11 restart, with players only allowed back in full training from May 25.

“Given the short preparation time, I think having six players on your bench would be beneficial,” Fagan told reporters on Friday afternoon.
