The 2nd of the 2 Players Chris Rourke wanted to recruit was Wodonga Raider Star Lachie Flagg. Noosa AFC had a few really good chats with Lachie and with some pressure from close mate Jack Harper, Lachie decided for a Sea Change. Even though Jack has had to head home for a year Lachie decided that the Sun, Surf and Footy club was to hard to leave and locked in for season 2022. Lachie was named in the powerful Ovens & Murray Team of Year in 2021 providing more proof that he will be a force in the QAFL this season
