Brisbane Lions vs Richmond Tigers Preview
A rematch of last year’s Qualifying Final gets us started this week between the Lions and the Tigers from the Gabba.
Brisbane polished off the eventual premiers by 15 points last October, and as the market suggests, they might just make it two in a row if recent form is anything to go by.
After a slow start to the season, Chris Fagan’s side has adjusted beautifully to win five on the trot after demolishing the Suns last week in the Q-Clash.
Not to be outdone, the Tigers also come in high on confidence after maintaining their spot in the eight with a come-from-behind win over GWS.
Brisbane has re-established its dominance at home recently with blowout wins over Essendon, Fremantle, and Port Adelaide, but the Tigers do look a little hard done by here at the line.
Up until their Round 10 loss last year, the Tigers had the wood over the Lions with 15 consecutive wins dating back to 2011.
The Lions should win this game with a much healthier midfield and a forward line that is firing on all cylinders, but after a couple of sloppy fourth quarters in recent weeks, the Tigers look a good bet for a sneaky backdoor cover.
