Brisbane vs Fremantle Preview

The Lions continued their strong form with a commanding 49-point triumph over premiership contenders Port Adelaide at the Gabba.

Brisbane have turned their start of the season around after only winning one of their first four matches. Since then, they’ve won their previous three matches against Essendon (57 points), Carlton (18 points) and Port Adelaide (49 points)

Harris Andrews was superb last week against tall forward Charlie Dixon taking 10 marks, 11 intercepts and limiting Dixon to two behinds. He will have another big task on Matt Taberener, who is in some serious goalscoring form.

Meanwhile, the Dockers lost their 11th consecutive derby match by 59-points last time out.

Fremantle slipped out of a finals spot following their derby loss, and a win against the Lions will see them return into the top eight.

The Dockers have been one of the deadliest sides going forward this season, being ranked fourth in the competition for marks inside 50. Taberner has been instrumental for Justin Longmuir’s side, with three or more goals in his last three matches.

The change of fixture was a big hindrance for the Dockers, who typically play well on home turf, and I believe the Lions will beat them comfortably on Sunday.

The Lions will see the return of Darcy Gardiner. It is unclear who he will go out for.

Fremantle will be forced to make at least two changes with Ethan Hughes and Heath Chapman ruled out with shoulder injuries.

The two sides last met in Round 2 last season which saw the Lions win by 12 points.
