Game Chat – Melbourne v Brisbane

Written by Thommo on July 19 2015

This match will have some sting in it as both teams will fancy their chances. The Demons should be disappointed with their loss to the Bombers last week in a game where they won every key statistic except the one that matters. We all know Melbourne can play decent football on their day but it’s difficult to pick when the players will turn up.

Due to the talent of their midfield, Brisbane have pushed good sides lately but until their spine matures they will struggle to match it with the best sides. However the Lions have a good record against the Demons and will look to continue their dominance. The return of Stefan Martin and Mitch Robinson will help their cause.

Thommo’s tip: Melbourne by 12 points.

  1. I’m giving Brisbane a very good chance at a third win for the season, but I’m probably biased as I’d like Rockliff and Zorko to dominate through the midfield and McDonald to find plenty of it in the Melbourne backline.
