Every night after training during that 2013 season, Berry – with his dad Troy, younger brother Thomas and older brother Joel – would go home via Horsham Hospital (or “the hossy”, as they called it) to visit his mum, Jedda. Their final visit would be on a July evening.

Jedda had been diagnosed with breast cancer eight years earlier, after discovering a lump after Christmas holidays in 2005.

Her fight included a mastectomy, which the family hoped would be the end of the illness.

But after shifting 75 kilometres south-east, from Nhill to Horsham, Jedda discovered the cancer had spread to her bowel, and then into her bones. The family was told to prepare for the worst.

Brisbane will challenge the one-match ban handed to midfielder Jarrod Berry in a bid to clear him for Friday night’s preliminary final against Geelong at the MCG.

Berry was charged with making “unreasonable or unnecessary contact to the eye region” of Melbourne star Clayton Oliver during Brisbane’s 13-point semi-final win on Friday night.

Oliver pinned the Lion to the ground and Berry appeared to make hand contact with the Demon’s face.

The Melbourne star complained to an umpire moments later, pointing towards his eyes in the process.

The incident was assessed as intentional conduct, high contact and low impact, drawing a one-match ban.

But the Lions confirmed on Sunday evening that they would challenge the ban at the AFL Tribunal.

Berry played a key role in the Lions’ come-from-behind 14.8 (92) to 11.13 (79) upset of Melbourne, and Brisbane desperately want him cleared to face the in-form Cats.


A fascinating Nfl finals tribunal showdown looms after Brisbane’s semi-final hero Berry was offered a suspension for his actions during a semi-final scuffle with Oliver on Friday night.

The Lions will now head to the tribunal to challenge the suspension handed to Berry, who claimed there was “nothing purposeful” in the contact he appeared to make to the eyes of Oliver in a spiteful third term at the MCG.

As the two tussled with Berry pinned on the MCG by Oliver over the top, vision showed the Lion reach up to his opponent’s face.

The Lions’ mid on Friday night said he wasn’t worried about a potential ban, saying the moment was “just a little scuffle in the centre of the MCG” and “part of the contest”.

He was eventually selected at pick 17 in the 2016 AFL draft.
