Game Chat – Brisbane v Gold Coast

Written by Father Dougal on April 22 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: ย Gabba, Sunday, April 22, 4.40pm AEST

SUMMARY: Depending on how you look at it, this could be the best time ever or the worst time ever to play a QClash after both teams were flogged last weekend. Brisbane copped a 93-point lesson from premier Richmond while Gold Coast made it successive losses in Perth with an 80-point hiding from West Coast. It might not be a great sales pitch for the marketing types, but a local rivalry is the best way for both teams to move on quickly. The Lions are still winless after a month, but aside from last week’s aberration, have been highly competitive. Gold Coast was flying with two wins from two, but its stint in the West Australian capital brought them back to earth, thanks to a patchy work-rate and inconsistent effort. Both clubs have made contested footy and tackling a priority, and just who brings the most intensity will get the points here. If the Lions match Gold Coast’s inside game, they might just have too much outside speed and sneak home.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES:
R21, 2017, Brisbane 22.10 (142) d Gold Coast 12.12 (84) at the Gabba
R1, 2017, Brisbane 15.8 (98) d Gold Coast 14.12 (96) at Metricon Stadium
R16, 2016, Gold Coast 22.7 (139) d Brisbane 17.11 (113) at Metricon Stadium
R4, 2016, Brisbane 14.23 (107) d Gold Coast 14.10 (94) at the Gabba
R19, 2015, Gold Coast 17.12 (114) d Brisbane 14.16 (100) at the Gabba

 

Father Dougalโ€™s Tip: Two out of form teams, take the home side. Lions by 7

  2. Very early in the game but if Zorko doesn’t pick up I think I might trade him to Yeo next week via Finlayson

  3. Zorko struggling with tag once again
    Trading strategy at start of year was patience, especially with premiums
    But wearing thin
