Debutant named as Demons and Lions reveal teams for Round 5 opener


The teams are officially in for the Round 5 clash between Melbourne and Brisbane at the MCG on Thursday night.

The in-form Demons are hoping to go 5-1 after their win against Adelaide while the Lions will be desperate to find themselves at 2-3 after winning their first game of the campaign last weekend against North Melbourne.
