Greater Western Victoria Rebels’ Tom Berry will play alongside his brother Jarrod at the Brisbane Lions.
The Horsham youngster was picked up with selection 36 in the second round of the AFL national draft on Friday.
Berry was the only player from the Rebels to attend the national combine in preparation for the draft.
He is the first Rebel to be drafted this year and first graduate under the coaching reign of Marc Greig.
Brisbane recruiting manager Steve Conole said on the Lions’ website: “Thomas has got a lot of attributes similar to his brother: fantastic work ethic, really competitive, great team player and athletic.
“Had quite a few injuries in his draft year so struggled with continuity. Can play a variety of roles.”
Jarrod Berry has been at the Lions two years and has played 37 AFL games.
