It is another do or die contest for reigning premiers Western Bulldogs as they bid to stay in the hunt for the finals.
Victory over Essendon Bombers last weekend kept the Dogs on the edge of the top-8 in ninth spot on the ladder, and Luke Beveridge’s men will see the trip to Brisbane as a perfect opportunity to stay firmly in contention.
It was a third straight win for the current premiers, who are outside of the finals spots on percentage only, as they continue to fight to extend their season into September.
The bottom-placed Lions, themselves, have a fight on their hands as they bid to avoid the wooden spoon once again and they showed plenty of spirit early in last week’s clash with West Coast Eagles before ultimately well outclassed.
Back at home Brisbane will be hoping to run the Dogs close with the Lions having won two of their last four at the Gabba.
But the Dogs won by 32 points when the two sides met earlier this season at Etihad Stadium and now they have returned to the kind of form that took them all the way to the flag last year, they should be too good again.
Brisbane lose Sam Mayes to a foot injury and drop Michael Close, Jarrad Jansen, Sam Skinner and Ben Keays with Daniel McStay, Jarrod Berry, Dayne Zorko, Hugh McCluggage and Eric Hipwood coming back in for the Lions.
Tory Dickson is a loss for the Western Bulldogs with a quad injury but Jack Redpath and Clay Smith return for the premiers.
