IT IS a sight that has not been seen for some time.
Coburg — a club that has struggled for success since its golden days in the late 1980s — currently sits in the top-five on the VFL ladder in a clear sign that significant improvement is being made.
The Lions took care of Frankston on Saturday to make for a 2-1 start to the season, their other win coming against Richmond in Round 1 and their only loss coming to 2014 runner-up Box Hill in Round 2.
This time last year, the story was much different.
“We’re certainly not getting ahead of ourselves, that’s for sure,” Coburg coach Peter German said.
