The Lions take on The Dogs at the Gabba on Saturday night in what is set to be a thriller.

They simply could not kick straight last week which has been an issue for them all season.

The Dogs are up and down in form this season and are struggling for consistency, but do always play a good game against the Lions.

Brisbane Form & Team News

They would have been odds on to be doing nothing but goal kicking over the last three days after a dismal display on Tuesday, so expect huge improvement in conversion on Saturday night.

Dan McStay will be back from suspension while Grant Birchall, Daniel Rich and Ryan Lester will all waltz back into the side.

Western Bulldogs Form & Team News

The Dogs need to find some consistency in their form if they are genuine finals contender.
They are a team that is lurking to win a big game, and this could be it as they always play well against the Lions.

They have been in need of another forward and Aaron Naughton is the one expected to come back into the side this week, relinquishing Josh Bruce to a forward pocket.

Brisbane vs Western Bulldogs Match Up

The key match up here will be between Aaron Naughton and Harris Andrews.

Andrews is one of the smartest backmen in the league and will have done his research on Aaron Naughton.

Both are strong contested marks, but Andrews does have the Golden Fist to get the win over Naughton.

After injury, if Naughton can kick an early goal, his confidence will be sky high for the rest of the match.
