Kosi back for Saints against Lions

St Kilda key forward Justin Koschitzke has been named to play his first game of the AFL season against Brisbane at the Gabba on Thursday night.

The 28-year-old was one of three inclusions as the win-less Saints reacted to a 52-point loss to Essendon in their most recent match before last weekend's bye.

Raph Clarke, Brett Peake and Ryan Gamble were all dropped, a move forecast by coach Ross Lyon after they played in the VFL on the weekend.

Tough backman Steven Baker returns from a heel injury, with Andrew McQualter the other inclusion.

Ruckman-forward Koschitzke, a veteran of 163 AFL games, has worked his way back through the VFL after off-season ankle surgery.

The 15th-placed Lions, also coming off a bye, made two changes, losing Ryan Lester to a foot injury and dropping Claye Beams.

Utility Tom Collier was named for the first time this season, while ruckman Broc McCauley was selected for just his second AFL game.
