Brisbane vs Geelong Preview


The Lions were lacklustre in their victory over North Melbourne by 23 points last time out.

Despite a shaky start to the match, the quality of Chris Fagan’s side dragged them over the line in a dull encounter. Jarryd Lyons was impressive in the middle of the ground with 36 disposals and 12 tackles.

If Brisbane is to come away with the four points, they will need to win the midfield tussle. Lyons, Hugh McCluggage and Lachie Neale were all amongst the Lions best against the Kangaroos.

The Lions have lost only one game at home all season, back in the opening round of the season against the Swans. They have beaten Essendon (57 points), Port Adelaide (49 points), Fremantle (24 points), Richmond (28 points) and GWS (64 points) at home since then.

Meanwhile, the Cats won a heart-stopping match after the siren against the Bulldogs to win by five points.

It was Gary Rohan with his second after the siren goal to win a match in his career, this time against the second-placed Bulldogs, which resulted in Geelong’s seventh win on the trot.

Chris Scott’s side will have the mental edge over their opponents this week, after a controversial one-point victory over them earlier in the season. I believe you can expect a physical encounter on Thursday night.

Although the Cats have won seven matches on the trot, I believe the Lions could get the four points in this encounter.

Lions vs Cats Team News


The Lions will have Dayne Zorko available after serving his one-match ban, whilst Jarrod Berry is available for selection.

The Cats will be forced to make at least two changes with Mitch Duncan and Lachie Henderson suffering injuries against the Dogs. Gryan Miers is a chance to come back into the side. Jordan Clark and Charlie Constable are a chance after strong performances in the VFL.

The two sides last met in Round 2 this season, which saw the Cats win by one point.
