The Lions are playing a good team oriented style of footy at the moment and should win this game at The Gabba
The Dockers have injury problems especially in defense and will have to play well to match the Lions at home
On form the Lions should win this encounter by 4+ goals
However no game in the AFL competition is easy.
The Dockers will be on the road for 2 weeks and lets hope WA is back to normal soon

Going to be a much closer game than people think. Fyfe, Mundy and Brayshaw won’t be easy for our midfield with no Neale and perhaps still no Berry.

Lions by 12
Didn't stop West Coast last week. Our defence is pretty much all on the sidelines and I don't like Cox against either Daniher or Hipwood. No excuse for Brisbane to win by anything less than 5 goals at the bare minimum considering how you've been playing at the Gabba.

After watching this weeks footy shows
I thought our team was injury free?!
All I saw and heard was eagles had players out but not one word that we had an injury.
News is dead, it’s now just selected information to help the narrative of a story.
We will bounce back and only lose by 17

Easy 4 points, just a matter of how much we batter them by... :moustache:

In all seriousness, our midfield would have to dominate because there is no way our B defence is containing that forward line.

Daniher+Hipwood+McStay to combine for 9.17

Remember that Freo are Freo, ........ lose the games they should win, win the games they are expected to lose !!!.

Having said, I can’t work out how the heck Freo can win.

Brissie by 4+ goals.

Below from footywire after teams named
A fair bit more experience in the Lions side as expected with the Dockers injury issues
Hard to see Lions loosing this one at home unless they get complacent
But no AFL game is certain

Dockers forward line are actually giving a pretty good account of themselves. They've hustled well but had some poor luck.

Brisbane winning the battle in the rest of the ground however.
Well our best KPF Taberner has kicked 20 goals and 10 behinds from 6 games this season.

One of our small forwards in Schultz has kicked 10 goals from 5 games

So that's a positive
