AFL 2017 Round 05 - Western Bulldogs v Brisbane

Lions captain Dayne Beams

Brisbane has named captain Dayne Beams for Saturday night’s clash with Adelaide at the Gabba.

The 2015 Merrett-Murray Medallist returns after missing the past fortnight with a quad injury.

Beams’ inclusion provides a massive boost for the Queensland side, with Lions vice-captain Tom Rockliff sidelined for up to three weeks with a dislocated shoulder suffered in last weekend’s 38-point loss to Hawthorn.

Last year's No.3 draft pick Hugh McCluggage has also earned a recall after being rested against the Hawks, while rookie forward Matthew Hammelmann will play his first AFL game of the year after being upgraded to the senior list on Wednesday evening.

Key forward Josh Schache and wingman Rohan Bewick have been omitted from the Lions' 22.
 

Brisbane’s team is:

B: Darcy Gardiner, Harris Andrews, Daniel Rich
HB: Sam Mayes, Josh Walker, Nick Robertson
C: Marco Paparone, Dayne Zorko, Ryan Lester
HF: Lewis Taylor, Michael Close, Jake Barrett
F: Tom Bell, Eric Hipwood, Ben Keays
FOL: Stefan Martin, Jarrod Berry, Dayne Beams
I/C: Ryan Harwood, Hugh McCluggage, Claye Beams, Matthew Hammelmann

EMG: Rohan Bewick, Rhys Mathieson, Archie Smith

IN: Beams, McCluggage, Hammelmann

OUT: Rockliff (shoulder), Schache (omitted), Bewick (omitted)
