The Brisbane Lions have named Jack Payne to face the Adelaide Crows at The Gabba on Sunday with the defender overcoming foot soreness.

Payne, who missed last Friday’s win over Melbourne, trained on Tuesday and Thursday this week to put his hand up for selection.

The key defender is the only change to coach Chris Fagan’s line-up who defeated the Demons.

Darragh Joyce will return to the VFL after taking Payne’s place in the Round 16 clash.

Joyce is listed as one of three emergencies for the Lions, along with young midfielder James Tunstill and ruck-forward Darcy Fort.

Brisbane’s extended interchange consists of Callum Ah Chee, Will Ashcroft, Jasper Fletcher, Bruce Reville and Darcy Wilmot.
