Essendon vs Brisbane Lions Preview


Essendon dished up an embarrassing and soft display in the first game of the season against Geelong, The 66-point loss was flattering considering the Cats dominance in every facet of the match.

It was a match to forget for their midfield group, which is arguably the most stacked area of the ground for Ben Rutten. It was the worst clearance differential since Round 3, 2013.

There has been a lot of promise and talk throughout the Bombers camp that they will repay their fans for the poor start to the season on Saturday evening, and I expect they will deliver in a fiery and tough encounter.

Meanwhile, the Lions started their optimistic campaign with an entertaining 11-point triumph over premiership contenders Port Adelaide after once trailing by four goals in the premiership quarter.

Former Bomber Joe Daniher starred with four goals and will be his first game against his old side back in Victoria. It will be intriguing to see the reception he receives on Saturday.

Brisbane will fancy their chances of a large victory on the weekend, with the previous three meetings being decided by more than 50 points.

It’s hard to look past the Bombers lacklustre start to the season against the Cats, and a match against last year’s preliminary finalists on the weekend won’t be any easier. Unless there is a drastic change, it should be a comfortable triumph for Chris Fagan’s outfit.
