Where and When: GABBA, Friday 4 September at 7:50pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 5: GABBA, Collingwood 18.15 (123) def Brisbane 8.13 (61)
Match Preview: This is the match of the very short round. The Pies were much improved against the Blues this week (it feels like just yesterday) and have historically enjoyed playing the Lions at the GABBA but they are facing a rested Brisbane fresh from their bye. If the Pies win this, they are back in a big way despite their injury list. If the Lions win this it doesn’t mean much except they remain in the top 2, but if they lose they appear to be pretenders despite the chance of a home Grand Final.
SC Watch: For the Lions, Lachie Neale should be back to his perma-Captain ways while a few Supercoaches are rocking Zorko and McCluggage.
For Collingwood, Taylor Adams has been consistent with Treloar out while Maynard and Grundy have been less consistent but have impressive ceilings on their day.
Thommo Watch: Grundy is my only SC player in this match!
Thommo’s Tip: Lions by 18 points.
