Josh Schache has joined the Western Bulldogs in a last minute deal after the Club sent picks 25 and 40 to the Brisbane Lions in exchange for the 20-year old key forward.

Schache joins the Dogs after 27 games and two seasons at the Lions after he was taken with the second overall pick at the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

The former Murry Bushranger won the Larke Medal after kicking 24 goals during the 2015 NAB AFL Under-18 championships.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Josh Schache played 27 games over two seasons at Brisbane before arriving at the Dogs during the 2017 trade period.

After his pre-season was interrupted with a calf injury, Schache bided his time in the VFL for Footscray. Three consecutive three-goal hauls eventually led to a senior call-up against Collingwood in Round 10.

He went on to notch up 13 games in 2018 and kick 17 goals, including a career-best haul of three against St Kilda in round 20.
