Metalcrusher 's Preview
The Brisbane Lions are searching for consecutive victories
Can Carlton turn honourable losses into wins?
Who will get the four points?
Can Carlton avoid the wooden spoon?
Will Bolton survive?
Most focus for this game this week, will centre around the fate of Carlton’s coach Brendon Bolton. The media will no doubt be champing at the bit to lay the boots in even further after the disappointing loss to *.
Another hot topic for discussing will be the clubs Captain Patrick Cripps. Cripps was well beaten for the second time this season — as second gamer Dylan Clarke limited the 24-year-old to 11 disposals, nine of which were handballs.
To win Carlton will definitely need to filter out all outside noise a look deep within itself to overcome a Brisbane team that is travelling nicely.
In my opinion the team needs to go back to basics, and bring the form they showed against Collingwood or Hawthorn to be any chance in this match.
Solid rebound through the central corridor, winning the stoppage clearances and delivery into the forward 50 will be a key ingredient to get another 4 points.
Prediction: Brisbane 36 points.
