The Vodafone Brisbane Lions will take their strongest squad of the pre-season to Canberra tomorrow for their final NAB Challenge match against Sydney.

Dual club leading goal kicker Daniel Bradshaw has been selected among the Lions’ 29-man squad to tackle the Swans and, if chosen in the final team, will play his first competitive match in 12 months.

The Lions have also included full back Daniel Merrett, ruckman Matthew Leuenberger, Scott Harding and Colm Begley into the squad that lost to reigning premiers Geelong by 40 points last week.

Merrett and Begley appear set to play their first match of the pre-season while Leuenberger and Harding return from minor injuries.

It will be the last official practice match of the pre-season for the Lions who will take next weekend off before they begin their 2008 AFL Premiership campaign on Saturday 22 March against the Eagles.
