Round five continues at the Gabba for a special evening for one of their greatest servants – it’s the Brisbane Lions taking on Geelong. Join us for live scores and updates from 7.40pm AEST.

Four weeks in and both sides are two wins and two losses – a record many fans weren’t really expecting.

Brisbane fans may have been hoping for an even ledger, but Cats fans though were expecting to be closer to 100 per cent.

Last week both sides were able to get wins against lower-rated opposition, but they were very different victories.

The Brisbane Lions were dominant in the second half against the Gold Coast Suns in the Q-Clash, with Simon Black and Tom Rockliff starring and Jonathan Brown kicking his 500th goal.

Geelong on the other hand were challenged the whole way by Richmond, lost the possession count, lost the contested ball count (a stat they are yet to win in any game in 2012), yet managed to grind out a victory in tricky conditions at home.

Geelong have had a big first fortnight. Since then, they’ve had two teams they should have put away easily, but really struggled.

Is that a sign of the Cats starting to fall back to the pack, or is it the side just playing below par?

It’s a very important night for the home team as one of their greatest servants, Simon Black, becomes the first Brisbane Lions player to reach 300 games.

Black has had a glittering career which includes a Brownlow Medal, a Norm Smith Medal, three All-Australians and three premierships during the golden age in the sunshine state.

But sentimentality will not be how the Lions get over the line. They will need to shutdown midfielders Jimmy Bartel, Joel Selwood and Joel Corey. They will also need to keep a close eye on James Podsiadly and Tom Hawkins up forward.

And they will need to give Jonathan Brown some space up forward, while relying on some of their midfielders to add some goals throughout the game.

It’s no easy feat. But it’s been shown in the last fortnight that the Cats have been vulnerable. There can be no let up from Brisbane, or they’ll be taken to the sword.

Will we see the Lions make it back-to-back wins and celebrate for Simon Black’s 300th? The action starts at 7.40pm AEST as the Lions host the Cats so make sure you join in on the conversation below.
