BRISBANE'S dramatic rise up the ladder has been rewarded in AFL.com.au's 2019 Virgin Australia AFL All Australian side, with four Lions selected in the final team.
A total of 11 AFL.com.au reporters across Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales voted for their All Australian teams following the 40-man squad announcement on Monday.
Brisbane and West Coast were the best-represented teams, with each club having four players selected, while Geelong and Richmond each had three players chosen.
Lachie Neale and Dayne Zorko have enjoyed brilliant seasons in Brisbane.

West Coast is also represented by four players in defensive pair Shannon Hurn and Jeremy McGovern, key forward Jack Darling and hardened midfielder Elliot Yeo.
Nine players were selected in all 11 of our reporters' teams, with Lions trio Andrews, Neale and Cameron among that bunch. Patrick Dangerfield, Patrick Cripps, Nat Fyfe, Michael Walters, Jeremy Cameron and Brodie Grundy were also unanimously selected in every side.

Of those to miss out, defenders Nick Haynes, James Sicily and Brad Sheppard narrowly missed out in the backline, while Jack Macrae was just edged for a spot in the midfield.
The official 2019 Virgin Australia AFL All Australian side will be revealed on Wednesday.
