Brisbane Lions vs Western Bulldogs Preview
She’ll be a red-hot Sherrin at the Gabba on Saturday night as both the Lions and the Bulldogs hope to bounce-back from respective losses during the week.
The Lions were their own worst enemy on Tuesday night at Metricon as wayward goal-kicking kept their 11-year losing streak against Richmond intact.
The Bulldogs weren’t much better in front of the sticks in their loss to Port, either.
Luke Beveridge’s side kicked five goals and 12 behinds in their 13-point loss at the Adelaide Oval, a defeat that leaves the Bulldogs clinging to a spot in the eight with the Bombers breathing down their neck.
These two sides split their two-game series one win apiece last year.
The Dogs defeated the Lions by two goals when they met in Ballarat, before Brisbane got some revenge in Round 20 with an 18-point win at the Gabba.
Returning to their true home ground should help the Lions this week, but there are some real concerns for Chris Fagan right now.
The Lions clearly didn’t cope well with the short rest last week, while Cam Rayner’s hamstring injury really seemed to throw the forward line into disarray last week.
Meanwhile, down back, Harris Andrews had his fair share of trouble with Tom Lynch on Tuesday, an area the Bulldogs will look to exploit.
All in all, there really isn’t as much separating these two side as the current market suggests, so take the Dogs to keep it close.
