Brisbane Lions defender Darcy Gardiner is available for selection for Thursday night’s Easter blockbuster clash with Collingwood at The Gabba.

Gardiner underwent scans on his knee after being subbed out at halftime in the Club’s Round 1 match against Fremantle.

The scans cleared the 160-game defender who is expected to line up against the Pies.
