Bradshaw gains shock recall

Brisbane full-forward Daniel Bradshaw has been named to make a surprise return from injury in Saturday night's AFL clash with Collingwood at the MCG.

Lions coach Michael Voss earlier this week ruled out the possibility of Bradshaw playing the Magpies after straining his hamstring against Fremantle two weeks ago.

Voss said Bradshaw would be in line to return against Essendon next week but the goalkicking stalwart was included, replacing the suspended Tim Notting.

It's a major boost to Brisbane who are hunting a top-four berth with victory over Collingwood with Bradshaw to team with in-form skipper Jonathan Brown in attack.

Bradshaw was one of four changes with Tom Collier (knee), Pearce Hanley (hamstring) and Albert Proud (foot) all casualties from the 43-point win over North Melbourne.

Forward-midfielder Tom Rockliff becomes the Lions sixth debutant after being named on the interchange bench with fellow youngster James Hawksley while tagger Troy Selwood has returned from a dislocated shoulder after a stand-out appearance in the reserves.
