Gold Coast Suns vs Brisbane Lions Preview
The first Q-Clash of the season gets underway at Metricon on Saturday night with more than just bragging rights on the line.
Winners of four straight, the Lions have reverted back to their old ways to cement their spot in the eight, while the Suns still find themselves in the mix despite another heart-breaking loss to the Saints last week.
As far as the ladder goes, Brisbane can venture back inside the top four if results go their way, while the Suns have a chance to close the four-point gap between themselves and Richmond, Fremantle, and St Kilda.
The Lions have typically dominated this fixture though, particularly over the last two seasons.
Brisbane has won the last three Q-Clashes by 40 points or more, and we could see a similar margin unfold this time around if Chris Fagan’s forward line has its way.
After a rough start to the season, Charlie Cameron finally got the revs up with a three-goal bag against the Dockers last week, followed closely by another outstanding performance from big offseason recruit, Joe Daniher.
The Suns do have enough talent in their own forward line to keep this close, but whether they have the legs to compete with the Lions for four quarters, or the strength to deal with Brisbane’s relentless pressure, remains to be seen.
