Squad Announcement: Round 2

Senior Coach Chris Fagan has kept with a winning formula and kept the same team who defeated the reigning premiers in Round 1, to take on North Melbourne this weekend.

Fresh from their blistering first performances for the Lions, Lincoln McCarthy, Lachie Neale and Jarryd Lyons will all return for a second go.

There is the potential for two debutants against the Roos, with Fagan naming Connor Ballenden and Noah Answerth in his 26-man squad.

Ballenden is in his second year with the Lions, after coming through their Hyundai Help for Kids Lions Academy.

Answerth was the Oakleigh Chargers Captain in 2018 and was drafted to the Club with their 55th pick at the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

Nick Robertson and Archie Smith were included on the extended interchange bench for the first time this season.

The final 22-man side will be released tomorrow on

The match will kick off this Sunday, 31 March at 1.10pm AEDT and will be broadcasted live on Fox Footy.
