Skipper Dayne Zorko has been selected to make his return for the Lions against the Crows at the Gabba on Sunday.

Zorko was a late withdrawal from the side that defeated West Coast by 30 points on Saturday night but was able to complete full training today to earn his spot.

How he recovers from the session will be monitored over the coming days.

Veteran ruckman Stef Martin will miss another week with a slight hamstring strain leaving Archie Smith to again partner Oscar McInerney in the ruck.

Lions Academy product Connor Ballenden has been named on an extended six-man interchange bench and if he holds his spot will make his debut for the Club.

Mitch Hinge and Alex Witherden are the other new faces in the squad.
