Where and when: Gabba, 7:50pm (AEST)
Last time they met: W1 Finals 2020: Brisbane 10.9 (69) DEF Richmond 8.6 (54) at The Gabba.
The Brisbane machine got things started in the midfield, where Hugh McCluggage (20 disposals) put in a brilliant game on the wing, Jarryd Lyons (27) took on the star-studded Richmond brigade and was the best clearance player on the ground and Jarrod Berry didn’t take a backward step. Daniel Rich, too, was terrific off half-back with 20 touches. But they were also well served by a (largely) accurate forward line sparked by Cameron’s brilliance, with the Lions star booting three pivotal goals.
Match Preview: Even without the services of the reigning Brownlow Medallist, the Lions are flying right now and sit 4th on the ladder. Richmond on the other hand have been patchy dropping games to teams they shouldn’t be. Coach Hardwick would say this is exactly where he wants his team to be at this time of year but is it though?
