Game notes: A refreshed Greater Western Sydney line-up will head to the Gabba to take on the struggling Brisbane Lions on the back of a bye. A few selection questions await, including doubt over Josh Kelly’s fitness and if the Lions pick Josh Schache after his five-goal haul in the NEAFL last weekened. The Lions have shown some stronger form over the last few weeks, but will this match see them crash back to earth? Dayne Zorko, Dayne Beams and Tom Rockliff will meet a highly-rated Giants midfield head on in a tough battle that could shape things. Their young guns will also need to stand up this weekend if they are any chance of beating a GWS side that will be out to make a statement after being upset by the Blues at Etihad Stadium two weeks ago. The Lions will need to bring their best defensive game to stand a chance against the favoured Giants, who have won their last three matches against the Lions by an average of 51 points.
Thommo’s Tip: GWS by 50 points.
