Carlton vs Brisbane Lions Preview


Brisbane are solid favourites for this game and will be hard to beat at the GABBA. The Lions have hosted 12 games at the venue in 2023 and are unbeaten in all of those.

Chris Fagan’s side were too good for Port Adelaide at their home ground in the first week of the finals, handing Port Adelaide a 58 point defeat and it was Joe Daniher that booted five goals, while a couple of young guns in Cam Rayner and Jaspa Fletcher chimed in with three each. Hugh McCluggage was instrumental in the middle of the ground with 26 disposals.

They take on a Carlton outfit that are riding the crest of a wave after two finals wins. The Blues are in the September action for the first time since 2013 and are making the most of it with wins against Sydney by seven points and Melbourne by two points.

Last weekend, Blake Acres snagged a late goal to sink the Demons. That win was set up by Sam Walsh, who had 34 disposals, while Patrick Cripps had 27 of his own. Jacob Weitering was rock solid in defence.

Charlie Curnow was subdued by Steven May and will be looking to bounce back after booting just one goal. He will be joined by Harry McKay, who returns from concussion, while Jack Martin is likely to come back in after serving his one-match suspension.

At the other end of the ground, Brisbane might just have too much firepower with Charlie Cameron, Cam Rayner and Eric Hipwood to support Daniher in front of the big sticks. Look for the Lions to end Carlton’s run and book themselves in for a Grand Final spot against either Collingwood or GWS.
