Josh Schoenfeld has been named to make his return from a knee injury when the SUNS take on the Brisbane Lions in the NEAFL on Saturday. 

Schoenfeld last played in Round 11 of the AFL but after successful completing his rehab period will line up on the half-forward flank on the weekend.

Tom Nicholls also returns after being managed last week and will shoulder most of the ruck duties for the match.

Brad Scheer and Josh Corbett are two inclusions for the match after being omitted from the AFL team.

Academy prospect Ashton Crossley has been recalled, while Andrew Swallow will also play.

Corey Ellis, Chris Burgess and Peter Wright come out of the team after being selected to play in the AFL side.

Mitch Riordan experienced ankle soreness at training this week and is subsequently unavailable for selection.

The match kicks off at 3:45pm at the Gabba.

The match will be live-streamed here.
