Berry made his debut in the thirty-one point loss against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium in round three of the 2017 season.
Jarrod was a standout junior, playing local football with the Horsham Saints and with the North Ballarat Rebels in the then, TAC cup and was a standout bottom age player in the TAC cup, winning All-Australian and team of the year honours in 2015.
He was highly touted as a possible number 1 draft pick for the 2016 season, although injuries and inconsistent form hampered his top age year.
He captained Vic Country at the AFL Under 18 Championships in 2016, and he further improved his draft stock at the draft combine, winning both the 3 km time trial and the beep test, showing his competitiveness and endurance.
Also he was eventually selected at pick 17 in the 2016 AFL draft alongside his best mate, Hugh McCluggage.
Jarrod Berry Suspension
Brisbane midfielder Jarrod Berry has received a one-match ban for an alleged eye gouge on Melbourne’s Clayton Oliver but the Lions are expected to head to the AFL tribunal to contest the sanction.
The match review officer graded the incident as intentional conduct, low impact and high contact, stating it was “unreasonable or unnecessary contact to the eye region” of Oliver.
Berry helped turn Friday night’s semi-final in Brisbane’s favour with a stirring second-half performance against Oliver.
He will be sorely missed in the preliminary final against Geelong if the Lions are unable to clear him.
AFL great Luke Hodge and AFLW star Daisy Pearce both said when covering the game there was enough evidence to clear Berry of any intentional wrongdoing.
“In the slow motion it doesn’t look good,” said Hodge, a former Berry teammate.
“(But) he’s got a forearm in his face. Both times he reaches, the next reach he grabs the jumper, it’s the same motion as grabbing the jumper.
“He may have grazed the eyes but I know Jarrod Berry, I know he wouldn’t be someone who would deliberately eye gouge.
“He’s got a forearm to his face and he’s reached up, two seconds after he almost hit the eye, he grabs the jumper.”
Berry is of greater concern, with the young midfielder nursing his shoulder following a tackle, also in the second term.
“He’ll have to have some scans,” Fagan said.
“(We’ve) got the fingers crossed it’s maybe a two or three-weeker and not a season-ender, but we won’t know until that’s all checked out.
“He’s convinced me the shoulder is pretty good, but they’re tough these boys and all they want to do is play. I’m hopeful.”
McCarthy copped the full brunt of Archie Smith’s knee in his quad before half-time but managed to play the game out.
He will be “touch and go” to play Sydney.
