Game Chat – Brisbane vs Carlton

Where and When: GABBA, Saturday 19 September 2020 at 7:40pm AEST

Last time they met: Rd 12, 2019: Carlton 11.12 (78) def Brisbane 9.9 (63) at Marvel Stadium.

Match Preview: Carlton has made a habit of playing a good half of footy in most matches this season and they have challenged many strong sides. If they had played well for all four quarters more often in 2020, they would be playing finals and undoubtedly their best form could upset the Lions. Unfortunately, after losing to Adelaide, they are no longer in contention for finals while the Lions have a top 2 finals spot on the line. When the Lions bring the pressure tonight, will the Blues care enough to bring their own A game? I doubt the Lions will let this one slip!

Supercoach Watch: Brisbane – Lachie Neale has been amazing all season; can he pump out one more massive score for his owners? McCluggage, Lyons and to a lesser extent, Zorko, have also been excellent for their few owners.

Carlton – With Doc out, Cripps and Martin are the most popular Blues remaining.

Thommo Watch: My focus was on Berry, just to see if he was named!

Thommo’s Tip: Brisbane by 25 points.

  1. Does anyone think Neale is worth the C? Risk is the tag from Curnow, but do Carlton actually play a tag in a meaningless game for them?


      1. I had to make the call with little advance notice – went with Neale knowing Curnow will be on him. But hoping that after last rnds harsh tagging of Neale the Bris team has given a bit of thought to better protecting him.
        The SCT vote seems to suggest I’ve got it wrong. Cheers.


        1. Neale 142 despite Curnow tagging him & Lyons 63 (his 2nd lowest of the season). Lucky I went with the gut and not the head (at least on this occassion).


    1. on 20 @ 1/2 time
      should have been rested today
      all he can do is handball
      recon he’s only playing because its simpsons last game


  2. You know you’re universally respected when even the umpires want to shake your hand after your final game!

    Farewell, Simmo.
