Sydney face the Lions in Cairns with Brisbane looking for a sixth straight win in their quest to finish the season on top of the ladder.

Sydney can bounce back to form quickly, but seem to lack a lot of depth through their forward line without Isaac Heeney in the side.

Brisbane improved their kicking last week, but need to keep this stat up if they are to be genuine Grand Final contenders.

Sydney Form & Team News

Sydney were very good until the last quarter against Carlton last week, driving the ball out of half-back and presenting themselves well to kick the first six goals of the game.

They either got tired or were outplayed in the second-half of the match with Carlton charging hard to beat them by five points with a goal just 90 seconds before the siren.

Brisbane Form & Team News

Brisbane are the team to watch with the Grand Final being played at the Gabba, so they will be doing everything they can to finish at the top of the ladder.

They were simply a class above against the Gold Coast, kicking straight with all the stars of the side having a huge influence.

Jarrod Berry, Lincoln McCarthy and Brandon Starcevich were the casualties adding to the list with Harris Andrews, but expect McCarthy to be playing. Starcevich will likely miss due to the concussion while Berry will likely be rested against a weaker side.

Sydney vs Brisbane Head To Head

Based on how each team is performing, it is expected that Brisbane will make it two wins in a row against Sydney.

Sydney vs Brisbane Betting Odds

Sydney are $3.25 outsiders while Brisbane are the $1.35 favourites.

The line has been set for Brisbane at -16.5.

Sydney vs Brisbane Match Up

The key match up in this match will likely be between Jake Lloyd and Cam Rayner.

Lloyd is one of the leading disposal getters in the competition with his run off half-back, while Rayner is finally living up to his number one draft pick potential.

Effecting the scoreboard in recent weeks, Rayner will also need to play a defensive roll on Lloyd, with much of Sydney's drive through the middle of the ground coming from him.

If Lloyd is not having an influence and Rayner is hitting the scoreboard, Brisbane will be winning this match.
