Brisbane vs Essendon Preview

This shapes as an interesting contest with Essendon travelling north to tackle a red-hot Brisbane Lions outfit on Saturday evening. The home side come in with five straight wins and are unbeaten at the GABBA in 2023, banking victories over the likes of Melbourne and Collingwood.

Chris Fagan’s side come off a 26 point victory over Carlton in Round 8 at Marvel Stadium and it was Charlie Cameron and Zac Bailey that booted four goals each, while Johs Dunkley had a game-high 33 disposals.

Essendon have lost their past three but have come up against some of the better sides in the competition in Collingwood and Geelong. Last week, they missed out by five points against Port Adelaide, despite the efforts of Darcy Parish (37 disposals).

The Bombers lose Jordan Ridley for their trip to Brisbane and he joins a number of others on the sidelines. Dayne Zorko faces a race against time to prove his fitness.

Expect this to be a hard-fought game and the Bombers might represent the value at the price. I will stop short of tipping them here but the line looks within sight and they were victors the last time they played at the venue.
