Brisbane vs Richmond looks a belter of a match on Friday night, being a replay of last year's Qualifying Final.

Richmond have been too strong for Richmond over the last decade, having beaten them each time since 2009. But we know Brisbane coach Chris Fagan has brought the best out in the Lions and could do so once again in front of the home crowd.

Brisbane Form & Team News

Beating the Gold Coast, Sydney and Carlton is not the strongest form coming into a Finals campaign, but a win is a win and the Lions are sure to bring their confidence into this match.

The big in for the Lions is the return of All Australian defender Harris Andrews, after a niggling hamstring injury that looked worse than it was.

The other key in for the Lions is Jarrod Berry who loves the hard ball and will be a very important player as he comes back into the side.

The Brisbane team for Friday is below:

B: D.Rich, D.Gardiner, H.Andrews
HB: Z.Bailey, R.Lester, G.Birchall
C: H.McCluggage, M.Robinson, C.Ah Chee
HF: D.Zorko, D.McStay, C.Rayner
F: O.McInerney, E.Hipwood, C.Cameron
FOLL: S.Martin, J.Lyons, L.Neale
I/C: J.Berry, L.McCarthy, K.Coleman, B.Starcevich

Richmond Form & Team News

Richmond are the side you do not want to mess with during the Finals period given their recent record - and the fact that they are the reigning premiers.

Gaining more confidence as the season rolls on, the Tigers are looking dangerous once again as they prepare to defend the flag.

The Tigers will not have big forward Tom Lynch, but will likely welcome back Shai Bolton, Dion Prestia, and Josh Caddy who all have a cemented spot in the senior side. Jake Aarts has recovered from injury with the week break.

The Richmond team for Friday is below:

B: D.Astbury, D.Grimes, N.Balta
HB: L.Baker, N.Vlastuin, B.Houli
C: K.McIntosh, J.Graham, M.Pickett
HF: J.Castagna, S.Bolton, D.Martin
F: M.Chol, J.Riewoldt, D.Rioli
FOLL: T.Nankervis, S.Edwards, T.Cotchin
I/C: D.Prestia, J.Short, J.Aarts, K.Lambert

Brisbane vs Richmond Match Up

The key match up of this match could be between Jack Riewoldt and Harris Andrews.

With no Tom Lynch and Andrews coming back into the side off an injury, this could be the right option to limit his movement from full back and to shut down their key forward.

Riewoldt has turned his form around in this back half of the year, kicking 28 goals to be Richmond's equal leading goal kicker along with Lynch.

A colossal battle is in store and the winner of this match up could decide the fate of the qualifying final.

  • Jarryd Lyons has recorded 20+ disposals in all of his night matches this season
