The half-back will be a late inclusion for running defender Nathan Wilson, who was a late withdrawal after developing back soreness. 

The 19-year-old Young sat out of the Dockers' reserves scratch match against the Lions on Saturday morning along with fellow emergency Connor Blakely.

However it is Young, a product from the Dandenong Stingrays, who received the nod.

The Lions will go into the clash as named on Thursday, as they seek to improve on their disappointing round one loss to Hawthorn at the MCG.
