Veteran Brisbane defender Daniel Merrett says players, not coach Justin Leppitsch, have to wear the blame for their disastrous AFL loss to Collingwood.

Merrett described the 78-point defeat last Saturday, which came just two weeks after the Lions nearly sprang a huge upset over Sydney, as the worst during Leppitsch's tenure as coach.

The Lions have the chance to bounce back against Melbourne at the MCG on Sunday.
