Brisbane vs Richmond Preview

The Lions won their fifth consecutive match against the Suns by 73 points last time out.

After the poor 1-3 start to the season for Brisbane, theyโ€™ve won the last five matches to put their campaign back on the right track and snuck into the top four for the first time in 2021.

The Lions have managed to keep their opponents to 51 points or less in three of their last five matches, showcasing their ability to keep their opponents to a low score.

Meanwhile, the Tigers came from behind to defeat the Giants by four points to keep their spot in the eight.

Richmond trailed by as much as 28-points in the third quarter, but a late surge and a goal from Daniel Rioli dragged them over the line in an instant classic. Liam Baker was superb with 33 disposals, whilst Dustin Martin finished with four majors.

Although they broke even in the middle of the ground against the Giants, with the majority of their midfield injured, but the Lions at the Gabba is a different beast. The Lions have been dominating the midfield recently, despite the absence of Brownlow medallist Lachie Neale, and Damien Hardwickโ€™s side will need to limit the scores from stoppages.

Although the Tigers have dominated the Lions in recent history, I believe the Lions will be too strong at the Gabba and maintain their position in the top four.

Lions vs Tigers Team News

The Lions will be forced to make two changes with injuries to Ryan Lester and Darcy Gardiner. Jarrod Berry and Cam Ellis-Yolmen are chances to return.ย 

Richmond will make minimal changes after a good performance against the Giants. Dion Prestia is still likely to be another week away.

The two sides last met in the qualifying final last season which saw the Lions win by 15 points.
