Brisbane Lions vs Greater Western Sydney Giants Preview
The Brisbane Lions are possibly the in-form team of the competition having won their last six in a row by an average margin of 41.5 points.
Their latest scalp was the defending premier to the tune of 28 points in round 10, dominating Richmond through the middle of the ground.
The Lions won the hit-outs 42-28 and in turn the clearances 51-24 and stoppages 35-13.
With the absence of Lachie Neale with have seen the emergence of Jarryd Lyons who is 4th in the competition for contested possessions and fifth for stoppage clearances.
After losing their first three games, the Giants have also found form in recent weeks, winning five of their last seven.
A narrow defeat to Richmond and a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs have been the speed humps along the way but there has been plenty to like about the Giants and they sit just inside the the top eight on percentage.
The Lions forward line is firing at the minute and Charlie Cameron has been the main catalyst for Brisbane’s scoring prowess during this streak of wins.
They go inside 50 more than any team in the competition aside from Richmond and Port Adelaide at an average of 45.8 and on the flip side, GWS struggle in this area at an average of just 38.2 entries inside 50 per game.
It’s hard seeing the hosts getting beaten but GWS have shown plenty of fight and if their recent form continues, and they remain competitive at the stoppages, they will not be blown out of the park.
