Triple AFL Premiership player and Brisbane Lions legend Jonathan Brown has announced his immediate retirement from the game after receiving Doctor’s advice to give the game up straight away. The advice comes after Brown received his third serious concussion within twelve months during the Lions 45-point loss to the Greater Western Sydney Giants on June 14th.
Jonathan Brown a super player who helped build game in QLD. Done what @billyslater has done for NRL in Melbourne. Aussie tough.
