Opposition Watch: Lions go in unchanged

    - Brisbane Lions,Gold Coast Suns

The Brisbane Lions have elected to go into QClash18 with an unchanged line-up from the team which beat the Western Bulldogs last week.

Lions skipper Dayne Zorko was in doubt for the Queensland derby after missing most of the second half against the Dogs with a suspected hamstring injury.

But scans revealed the 30-year-old hadn’t sustained any damage to his hamstring and after getting through training this week he has been selected to play.

Should Zorko be a late withdrawal from the Lions team, any one of Ryan Bastinac, Josh Walker, Cedric Cox or Brandon Starcevich could come in to replace him, with the four named as emergencies.

SUNS debutant Caleb Graham, who was named at fullback for Gold Coast, could start against Dan McStay with the athletic tall named at full forward.

The match kicks off at 4:35pm at the Gabba, with the NEAFL playing a curtain raiser starting at 12:55pm.
