Brisbane Lions vs West Coast Eagles Preview
It was great to see the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) get the job done in the first of four consecutive games at the Gabbitor.
Charlie Cameron’s first-half was brilliant and Dayne Zorko saved the day to ensure a solid 12-point win over Freo.
The next few weeks will be telling to see just how much our boys have improved after an outstanding 2019 season.
No one expected West Coast to go down to the Gold Coast Suns, let alone by 44 points.
But this is 2020 so, it’s on-brand for the times we are in.
The Eagles will be hurting and given they are currently based in a hub, they won’t have the usual 5.5-hour flight from Perth to get to the game, rather the hour bus trip up the M1.
Perhaps it was a poor day at the office and relocating the entire football club to the other side of the country caught up with them?
I wouldn’t write them off yet, but you simply can’t go past the Lions at the Gabba.
Expect the pressure to be on WA Premier Mark McGowan to open up the border when the Lions do a number on the Eagles leaving them 0-2 in their Queensland hub.
