Where and when: GABBA, Saturday 17 April at 7:25pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Round 9, 2020: Brisbane 14.7 (91) def Essendon 3.10 (28) at Metricon.
The score tells the story here. Brisbane lead by 4 goals at quarter time and killed the game off in the third quarter with 5 goals to 1 goal. Lachie Neale was everywhere with 32 possessions and 2 goals and Charlie kicked 4 goals.
Match Preview: Am I alone in thinking the Lions wish they were still playing in a Queensland Hub? They have looked soft at times and have played inconsistent footy every week. While they are unlucky to have dropped the Geelong game, they have hardly looked like the team that finished in the top 4 in 2020. Despite the Bombers’ lowly ladder position, this is a huge danger game for Brisbane.
The word is that he has barely trained this week so it will be interesting to see how Lachie Neale plays tonight. Can he get back to his Brownlow best?
