Last year with most games in QLD and Lions not having to travel too often during H & A, minimal injuries and finals at the GABBA I was hopeful we would make the GF. This year even if the above occurred and we managed to sneak into the top 4 not so bullish that we can make the GF, but would love to be wrong.Must win and should win comfortably, Lions by 70+, and then beat Eagles in final round.
We are still a slight chance to make top 4.. we need >
1- Blues to beat Port and/or Saints to beat Cats today, unlikely but there have been big upsets lately. Then it would get very interesting in round 23 >
2- Demons to beat Cats and/or Dogs to beat Port. Both very real possibilities.
I'm excited about a fit Dizzy's return. Missed him badly on last year prelim.
Some opposition teams are just hard to beat for some reason
For us that is the Pies
Bailey kicks goal after siren to win by 1 point earlier this year
Lions win by 9 points in 2020 in low scoring game 42-34
Prior to that our last win was in August 2014
Hope we put the away early so they don't get a sniff of victory
