Recovery Report: Round 1 Head of Medical, Peter Blanch, provides us with the latest recovery report after round 1.

Marco Paparone will play in the NEAFL on Saturday in his return from a persistent hamstring injury that has plagued the defender since last season.

"He's come off a long 6-7 month rehabilitation with his hamstring tendon," said Brisbane Lions Head of Medical Peter Blanch.

"He's trained really hard and we're looking forward to seeing him back playing this weekend."

The 25-year-old had a plate inserted in February.

"Allen still has a little way to go with his surgery (from a broken collarbone)."

"He's still be another 3-4 weeks."
