In The Mix: Who's in line for Round 19 selection

Josie Fielding  July 25, 2017 4:29 PM

The main question that poses for the Brisbane Lions this week is who will fill Dayne Zorko’s spot against West Coast on Sunday afternoon.

Zorko’s intensity, along with three goals, 26 disposals and 19 kicks was instrumental in the club’s win over Carlton.

Zorko will not suit up against the Eagles on Sunday, after accepting a one match ban and fine for two striking instances in their win over the Blues.

Nick Robertson has emerged as one who could rival Zorko’s tenacity in the midfield for the Lions, as he returns from suspension.

Robertson had 16 disposals and 11 kicks in Round 17’s loss to Richmond, but his match up with Brownlow contender Dustin Martin was what fans and commentators were most impressed with.

Meanwhile, NEAFL players Cian Hanley and Jarrad Jansen could be outside chances for a senior call-up.  Hanley had 30 disposals at halfback and Jansen 32 in the midfield.
