Brisbane sit last on the ladder but only on percentage. They have the worst defence in the AFL but rank 13th in scoring. The Lions have been good over the last five weeks with two wins and two losses by 14 or less. Brisbane have posted at least 89 in four of their last five games.
North Melbourne have won just one of their last 11 matches and have conceded at least 107 points in seven of their last nine outings. They have just five wins for the season and rank 10th in scoring and 17th in defence. North have failed to post 80 in four of their last six.
The fight to avoid the wooden spoon comes down to one game for both sides as 18th-placed Brisbane Lions take on 17th-ranked North Melbourne in their last game of the home and away season.
The loser of the game ends up bottom of the pile for 2017, but picks up the number one draft…so who will suffer a bitter-sweet afternoon at the Gabba?
Despite going down by 13 points to Melbourne Demons last weekend, Brisbane have caught the eye somewhat in the second half of the season and are strong favourites to end the year on a high in front of their home fans.
North Melbourne, on the other hand, have endured a the second half of the campaign to forget, with just one victory in the last 11 games for the Kangaroos with the latest defeat coming against St Kilda last weekend.
The turnaround in form has left both sides with identical 5-16 records although North have a clear advantage in terms of percentage should this one end in an unlikely draw.
Can they muster one final effort and avoid the wooden spoon? Or will it be Brisbane who lift off bottom spot on Saturday afternoon?
North Melbourne lose Jack Ziebell, Brayson Preuss and Taylor Garner to injuries while concussion sidelines Daniel Nielson. Cameron Zurhaar is dropped with debutant Ben McKay, Jed Anderson, Lachlan Hansen, Lindsay Thomas and Aaron Mullett all coming in.
