Dogs can only drop 2 or 3 games if they're to make finals, but this is likely to be one - even without Brisbane hurting from that bad loss last week it would've been tough, god knows how they'll come out on Thursday now.

Poor goal kicking could be the equaliser, or the dogs midfield coming to play and really linking well with the forward line, but I'm not that optimistic.

We've just got to be on from the first bounce, we allow Brisbane to do to us what we let Hawthorn and Geelong do, the game will be close to over at quarter time.

If the midfield is switched on there's no reason we can't dominate in that area as it's obviously the area of strength over Brissy.

Pessimism abounds on the Lions board. Not many there give us a chance. Lots of screeching for heads to roll.

The best chance of beating the Lions is speed. We cant go with teams running on top of the ground at the moment.

Formline says Doggies but with the Doggies probable outs i reckon the Lions can hit back on their home deck.

Important game for both clubs.

Battle of the two best attacking teams in the eight and two of the three worst defensive teams in the eight.

Imagine it'll be a high scoring game. Dogs will be looking to exploit the lack of defensive running from Brisbane's mids, whereas the Lions will look for their forwards to exert dominance over the Dogs' leaky back six that really lacks any strong 1:1 defenders.

If Brisbane comes close to matching the Dogs in the middle, they should win. But after seeing how much their midfielders refuse to defend against opposing mids, I don't think they will.

Dogs for mine.

Feel like Neale and Rich are the keys to this one. If one or both have a big game then the quality inside 50s they generate will slaughter our backline, if we lockdown on Neale and avoid handing the ball over in our forward half we'll probably overwhelm them.

You just know this will come down to the final minutes.
Doggies match up well against Brisbane. Even without the likes of Richards, English and Smith, that midfield is going to dictate a game for large stretches no matter the opposition.

Lions far too good at home and will bounce back from last weeks performance.

If the Bulldogs are to make the 8 this year or at least stay in the hunt with the tough draw they have, they’ve gotta win this. With all that being said, still picking the Bulldogs, this is big for them. Bulldogs by 14 for me

You're right, if we lose this game we may as well start planning for next year

Tough draw to the end of the year

Can the Lions becas bad as last week? No, they can't. I predict punishment on the Dogs. No prisoners.
