Busselton product James Tunstill to make AFL debut for Brisbane Lions against Melbourne Demons

Brisbane Lions young gun James Tunstill will make his AFL debut on Thursday night against Melbourne in a ‘baptism of fire’, according to Lions coach Chris Fagan.

The 18-year-old will face one of the toughest tests in footy – the reigning premiers at the MCG – in his very first outing at the top level, and his former club East Perth couldn’t be happier for the “ripping young man”.

“He’s no doubt going to be nervous,” Royals Talent Manager Aaron Ballantyne said. “I think we’ll be nervous just watching him!”
