Game notes: These two clubs on the rebuild will both be licking their lips in anticipation of victory at the Gabba on Sunday. Carlton has five wins and sits in 16th place, but Brendon Bolton’s men have made great strides this season, particularly with the development of their young players. The Blues are playing a disciplined brand of football that is hard to break down, particularly across half-back with the cool heads of Sam Docherty and Kade Simpson. In contrast, the three-win Lions have shown a flair for attacking in Chris Fagan’s first season in charge, led by Rising Star nominees Hugh McCluggage and Alex Witherden, who like to kick aggressively and take risks when going forward. Carlton has scored the least amount of points in the competition, but the Lions have conceded the most, so this is anyone’s game (but mostly Carlton’s).
Mottsy’s Tip: Blues by 30 points.
