Thread Rule: No umpire complaining until after the game.


Where and when:
the Gabba, Saturday September 14, 7.25pm AEST

What it means for Brisbane:
After finishing second at the end of the home and away season, the Lions would hate to bow out in straight sets with two finals losses at home. This match represents a chance to overcome the disappointment of wasting so many opportunities against Richmond just seven days earlier.

What it means for Greater Western Sydney: There's always pressure on the Giants in September, and after disposing of the red-hot Western Bulldogs, the path is now open for them to make a deep run. Leon Cameron's seasoned finals outfit would see the younger Lions as very gettable.


The stat: Brisbane broke a six-game losing streak against GWS in round 16, but it hasn't been victorious over the Giants since 2013 at the Gabba.

The match-up: Lachie Neale v Matt de Boer
The Giants tagger has been in sensational form this year, adding the scalp of Marcus Bontempelli to his resume last week by restricting the Bulldogs' superstar to just 13 disposals. Can de Boer quieten his former Fremantle teammate Neale, who is fresh from 37 touches and two goals against Richmond?

Former teammates at Fremantle, Neale and de Boer are set to go head-to-head this week. Picture: AFL Photos




It's a big week for:
The eyes of the footy public will be on Toby Greene after the star half-forward escaped suspension on Monday night. If there's one Giant who doesn't mind playing with the spotlight on him, it's Greene, who has made a habit of lifting his game a notch or two come finals time.

Big call: Cam Rayner to embrace the bright lights of the finals and kick three goals among his 15 disposals.






Prediction: Brisbane by 14 points

If you told me at the start of the year that a win over Brisbane would get us a prelim final, I would have booked a trip on the spot.

But huge respect for the way the Lions have turned the ship around taken off this year. They play a great brand of footy and gave us a decent spanking a few months back.

This should be a cracker of a game.

UMPIRES: M.Stevic (9), R.Chamberlain (18) and S.Ryan (25).

I can only assume that these 3 will be the Grand Final umpires.

Very tough game to tip. Before last weekend it would have looked an easy win to Brisbane but GWS with their back 6 more like they want it and some other players in were like a different team than the weeks previous. Dogs had been playing very good footy but they were never in it.
Obviously GWS were treading a fine line in terms of physical aggression and at times looked as if they were deliberately trying to hurt players in tackles without regards to giving away frees. Regardless they showed a hardness and more importantly desire to win that has largely been absent in their game most of the times I've seen them recently.
They (GWS) have so much talent and if they can bring the same desire and preparedness to get the hard ball I think they can win this.
