Outspoken onballer Jason Akermanis has earned a recall after being named on the Brisbane Lions bench for Sunday's AFL clash against Port Adelaide.

Akermanis was named on Thursday on an extended seven-man bench and on Friday survived the final cut by coach Leigh Matthews who unveiled Mitchell Clark, Scott Harding and Joel Patfull as his emergencies.

Akermanis was dropped to the reserves last weekend due to a lack of form and off-field discipline.

Brisbane star Justin Leppitsch also makes a return for the Lions. He has been named at centre halfback after also spending last weekend in the reserves team the Suncoast Lions.
