Brisbane vs Collingwood Preview


The Lions returned to winning ways in emphatic style, with a 64-point belting against the Dockers.

Brisbane’s class was on full display, and it needed to be against a determined Fremantle outfit. Their forward half pressure was immense, and they laid a whopping 25 tackles inside 50.

However, their top-four chances have slipped out of their grasp, and a certain home elimination final is on the cards. The best they can hope for is to head into the match in good form.

Meanwhile, the Magpies fell short in a lacklustre performance against the struggling Hawks.

Collingwood won the scoreboard battle in the second half but was never able to get the game on their terms. They struggled to contain Tom Mitchell in and around the stoppages, who ended with 44 disposals and a goal. It’s a good time for the Magpies to regroup and reflect on their disappointing season.

Similarly, to their clash against the Hawks, the midfield will be a large indication of who will receive the four points on the day. A key to the Magpies success will be the outside run off half-back from the contest.

Brisbane has a formidable home record, especially against sides outside of the top eight in the previous two seasons, so a comfortable victory is on the cards on Saturday night.
