Collingwood Magpies vs Brisbane Lions Preview
It’s been quite the week for the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds).
First they were robbed/murdered/mugged by the umpires down in Geelong last week.
We’ll leave it at that.
Then with all the shenanigans back home in the Sunshine State, the AFL made them stay back in Melbourne for an extra night or two, and now until further notice.
A simple fixture-swap has taken place with the Magpies now hosting the Lions at Marvel Stadium this Thursday night originally meant to take place in Round 22 with that game now at the Gabba.
Logistics aside, to call this a make or break game for the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) is an understatement.
Old mate, Owen-two is lingering around like a bad smell and what better way to get the season back on track with a backs to the wall win over the Magpies on Thursday night.
Collingwood was outstanding last Thursday night beating their old rivals the Blues by 21 points with Jordan De Goey booting four goals in a high-scoring attacking affair. They will take plenty of confidence.
Having said that, the Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) is far too good a team to start the season 0-3, and perhaps a little taste of the extended road trip will do wonders for team morale.
We’ll take them with the small +2.5 point start
