With Pick No. 55 the Lions selected Oakleigh Chargers junior Noah Answerth at the 2018 AFL Draft. The 18-year-old captained the Chargers in the TAC Cup that year and represented Vic Metro at the Under 18 National Championships. His competitiveness and versatility, playing as a forward or shut down defender, caught the eye of recruiters. Answerth broke into the Lions senior side in 2019 and was a NAB AFL Rising Star nominee in Round 20.
