The Eagles are tipped to exit the season without playing finals footy with a Brisbane win predicted at home.

  • Brisbane Lions have won 2 of their last 3 matches
  • Brisbane Lions have won their last 8 matches at the Gabba
  • West Coast Eagles have lost their last 3 matches
  • West Coast Eagles have failed to cover the line in 6 of their last 8 matches

Head to Head


West Coast lead their recent head to head race 8-2. But the last two matches have gone the way of the Lions, both at the Gabba.

Brisbane Lions Form 


After looking in a little bit of trouble a month ago, the Lions have managed to turn themselves around, albeit against weaker sides in Gold Coast Suns, Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood.

The issue this back-half of the season is having no Eric Hipwood and no Darcy Gardiner in the line-up, one being a key forward and the other a lockdown defender.

With Gardiner back in the side, this at least strengthens them up defensively heading into the finals series.

Brisbane Lions Team News 


The Brisbane Lions team will go unchanged heading into Saturday afternoon's match.

Brisbane Lions Team List

HB: Birchall, Lester, Rich
C: McCluggage, Bailey, Berry

F: Ah Chee, Daniher, Cameron
FOLL: McInerney, Lyons, Neale
I/C: Cockatoo, Coleman, Prior, Fullarton
EMG: Berry, Mathieson, Adams, Ballenden

West Coast Eagles Form 


West Coast still have eighth spot up for grabs, as long as one of either Essendon Bombers or GWS Giants are defeated this weekend.

The Eagles have had a really patchy season and now head into a match against an in-form team with three losses in a row, including a solid beating last week against Fremantle Dockers.

Something that they have proven over the last couple of years is that their best footy is rarely played in Queensland.

West Coast Eagles Team News 


Connor West, Harry Edwards, Jake Waterman, Jamaine Jones and Josh Rotham all come into the side for West Coast.

Brad Shepard, Jeremy McGovern, Josh Kennedy and Tim Kelly are all injured and will not take their spot.

Jack Petruccelle (omitted) and Zac Langdon (sub) will also not play.
