Answerth was drafted by the Brisbane Lions in the 2018 Draft with pick 55 after a strong year in both the TAC CUP and U18 National Championships. Noah captained the Oakleigh Chargers in this year’s TAC Cup competition and also represented Vic Metro in the U18 National Championships. Noah is a genuine utility for any list as the medium-sized athlete can play at both ends of the ground.
In the TAC Cup grand final defeat against the Dandenong Stingrays, Answerth lead with incredible courage as he claimed 27 disposals and six rebound 50s. He is extremely versatile and can play anywhere on the ground, although his best performances in 2018 came as a rebounding defender.
At the 2018 AFL Draft Combine, he impressed in the kicking test and running vertical jump. Answerth missed a large chunk of the 2017 season after fracturing his back and was overlooked in the draft but bounced back for the 2018 draft where the Brisbane Lions selected him. Noah will look to add to the versatility of the emerging Lions’ list.
