The Lions are set to square up against the Fremantle Dockers this weekend. After last week’s shocking head knock Jonathan Brown will not be with the squad travelling to Perth as he weighs up his playing future. Poor Brownie has suffered a sickening string of Earth-shattering bashes to the head and face in the last couple of years. We hope Brownie is recovering well and that he puts himself, his family and his health first in any decision that he makes.
Losing Jonathan Brown is obviously a massive loss but we’re bolstered by the return of Daniel Merrett. The Big Sauce is a more than capable cover for Brownie up front. Merrett is one king-hell of a competitor and has a bigger boot than Doc Martin.
Here’s our squad.
FB: Justin Clarke, Matt Maguire, Joel Patfull
HB: Ryan Harwood, Sam Mayes, Jed Adcock
C: Rohan Bewick, Tom Rockliff, Dayne Zorko
HF: Lewis Taylor, Daniel Merrett, Marco Papparone
FF: Zac O’Brien, Michael Close, Josh Green
Followers: Stefan Martin, Jack Redden, Claye Beams
BENCH: Pearce Hanley, Nick Robertson, Darcy Gardiner, Tom Cutler
