One of the few questions for the Brisbane team will be who replaces tall Darcy Gardiner in the defensive 50. A knee injury suffered in the lead-up to last year’s preliminary final continues to linger, meaning it will be a battle between Marcus Adams and Jack Payne to partner Harris Andrews. Midfielder Ely Smith has dominated in the pre-season and is on track for Round 1 selection. Nakia Cockatoo missed the club’s game against Gold Coast on Saturday and seems unlikely to feature in the senior team at the start of the year. Joe Daniher is coming off a four-goal haul and should partner Eric Hipwood well.
