Derry gem runs from his own half and kicks stunning goal from 50 metres

There's Beast Mode and then there's Callum Brown Mode.

One of Derry's most impressive products continues his development Down Under and the GWS Giants are reaping the rewards.


It was a bad night for the Giants in the North East AFL as they took a bruising defeat at Gold Coast Suns but Brown was one of their five goalscorers and he certainly bagged the score of the game.

The Limavady club man has been turning heads since his move to Australia and has been getting fans excited about what he could bring to the table and that's why his initial rookie contract running until 2020 is expected to be extended.

It's rare that a Gaelic footballer is produced with the entire package. With pure speed, with raw strength, brains, kicking and catching but Callum Brown burst onto the scene for Derry, helped them to minor and under-20 Ulster glory and had anyone who knew anything about GAA and about him himself knowing that he was a star.

GWS Giants saw it too.


On Sunday, Brown goaled again but he did so with frightening directness, aggressive power, nimble footwork and dead-eye accuracy.

Picking the ball up in his own half of the pitch, Brown played a one-two, drove forward, side-stepped one man, burned another and unleashed an unbelievable effort from the 50-metre line to split the posts and draw applause all around.


That sidestep of his is capable of breaking ankles. He's caused chaos with it before and it has the capability of growing infamous for its terror in a different country too.

When you combine that level of skill with that sort of power, you've a prospect on your hands.


This won't be the last highlight we see of Callum Brown.
