THE regeneration of the Brisbane Lions’ list is continuing with seven players given their marching orders.

With the retirements of premiership star Jonathan Brown and Ash McGrath, it brings to nine the number of departures from the Gabba.

Andrew Raines, James Polkinghorne, Jordan Lisle and Patrick Wearden, along with rookies Sam Michael, Nick Hayes and Isaac Conway have all been delisted.

Raines, who has played 123 games for Brisbane and Richmond, is keen to play on in 2015, while Polkinghorne- who played 94 games for the Lions- may also have some currency elsewhere.
