Lachie Neale shines for Brisbane Lions in AFL pre-season match

Star recruit Lachie Neale has praised Brisbane's ego-free culture after the Lions' 42-point AFL pre-season win over Hawthorn.

The ex-Fremantle midfielder gave Lions fans a glimpse of his talent with a game-high 31 disposals, as the Lions cruised to a 15.12 (102) to 8.12 (60) win on Sunday afternoon over an inexperienced Hawks line-up.

Fellow newcomers Jarryd Lyons and Lincoln McCarthy also put in good shifts for the Lions in humid conditions at the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex in Burpengary.

Ex-Geelong forward McCarthy kicked two goals while Lyons claimed a goal and 26 disposals.

Neale said fitting into his new club had been made easy by the selfless nature of those around him.

"There's not one bloke that's trying to run the show and be the man in there," Neale said.

"It's a pretty even spread - guys who want to work for each other.

"The guys in there are really selfless and there's no egos in there."

Others to impress for the near full-strength Lions were skipper Dayne Zorko and Daniel Rich, while young gun Cam Rayner booted three goals.

Daniel McStay had two goals for the hosts.

In just his second match back from the foot injury that wrecked his 2018 campaign, pacey forward Charlie Cameron came from the field in the third term after tweaking his right hamstring.

Although the 24-year-old didn't return to the field, Lions staff were confident the issue was nothing major and said his failure to reappear was just precautionary.

Hawthorn headed north with several leading players remaining in Melbourne.

James Sicily had two majors for the Hawks but also kicked four behinds in a mixed performance, while Irishman Conor Nash booted two goals.

James Cousins led the disposals for Hawthorn with 29 touches.

Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson said his team had been overrun as fatigue set in.

"By and large, they acquitted themselves well. You probably saw the more experienced bodies run out the game a little bit stronger in the end," Clarkson said.

"The last 40 minutes, we were just hanging pretty tough, the young fellas, but the exposure that they get playing against pretty seasoned bodies was first class for them."

Clarkson said the Hawks' big guns would return for the club's second pre-season fixture on Saturday against Richmond in Launceston, with Brisbane to face Melbourne the same day in Cranbrook.
