Brisbane vs St Kilda Preview and Prediction

The Lions avoided an upset with a narrow one-point victory over North Melbourne.

A particular concern this season that Brisbane have had is their inaccuracy in front of goal, kicking more behinds than goals seven times this season, which almost cost them against the Kangaroos.

The Lions will have to find a way to limit the influence of the duel ruck duo, Rowan Marshall and Paddy Ryder if they stand a chance of getting the four points.

Dayne Zorko was the best for the Lions finishing the match with 23 disposals, six tackles, six intercepts and seven score involvements.

Meanwhile, the Saints cruised to a large victory over the struggling Bombers.

St Kilda was dominant against the frustrated Bombers and would consider themselves unfortunate to not win by a bigger margin.

They were particularly impressive with their delivery in the forward 50, taking 18 marks and having 18 scoring shots.

The Saints defensive structure will be tested against an x-factor Brisbane forward line who possess fast and expressive capabilities.

Zak Jones was impressive finishing the match with 26 disposals, five tackles and four clearances.

Although Brisbane was unconvincing against the Kangaroos last time out, I believe they’ll get the four points on Sunday.
