Brisbane captain Dayne Zorko is returning next year to complete unfinished business, officially inking a one-year deal to play in his 12th season.

The 33-year-old and five-time club champion remains a key contributor for the Lions, whose fourth-straight finals campaign ended in a 71-point preliminary final loss to eventual premier Geelong.

Zorko averaged almost 20 disposals and played 22 of 25 games to help Brisbane secure a top-four finish with consecutive finals wins over Richmond and Melbourne.

“The club has been building towards something really exciting the past few seasons and with that looking to continue next year, I really wanted to be a part of it,” Zorko said.

“Even though I am not getting any younger; I have been really enjoying my football, as we have such a great group of players and people at the club.

“I am extremely thankful for the Brisbane Lions to back me to go around again.”
