Geelong Cats vs Brisbane Lions Preview
Fair to assume that no one expected these two sides to be beaten in Round 1, but here we are.
The Cats and Lions will meet at the venue currently known as GMHBA Stadium on Friday night and despite it only being Round 2, the production team at AFL 360 will have an UNDER THE BLOWTORCH montage ready to go for whoever loses this one.
With the game being played at The Cattery, Geelong will go into this game the clear favourite ($1.60 at time of publish) and will be the first time they’ve played in front of their adoring home crowd since Round 23, 2019.
With Paddy Dangerfield out through suspension and gun recruit Jeremy Cameron missing with an injury, all eyes will be on the Cats to see if they can get their season back on track, even at this early stage of the year.
For the Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds), last Saturday’s 31-point loss to Sydney at the Gabba was disappointing to say the least.
Seeing Joe Daniher kick a couple of early goals was exciting, but they were simply blown away by the Swans young guns.
Brisbane has had the next game against Geelong pencilled in since the Cats beat them by 40 points in last years Preliminary Final at the Gabba.
To get one up on Geelong by beating them at their homecoming and giving them a 0-2 start to the season would be nice way to dish up some revenge.
Back the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) to cause an upset.
