The Brisbane Lions have gone from being a side that had only one win under their belts before the bye to arguably the form team of the competition.
They’ve won their last three matches in a row and at the moment that is the longest active winning streak in the AFL.
Granted, two of those wins have been against sides that no one is particularly impressed by: Fremantle and Carlton.
However last week’s win over Hawthorn in Launceston – Brisbane’s second win over the Hawks for the year – was one that has really put them on the map as a force to be reckoned with.
As for the Adelaide Crows, they’ve had a very challenging season in 2018. In particular, injuries have been a massive problem for them throughout the year.
As a result they find themselves outside the top eight looking in and have a percentage below 100, which is not ideal.
That said, they’ve been in really good form the past few weeks, knocking off West Coast and Geelong at home (but being comprehensively beaten by Richmond at the MCG).
This match will be a good test of how effective they are travelling away from home. They are certainly the more mature and stronger team and would expect to win comfortably.
Achieve that and they could still be a finals chance, but if they drop this one then their season is surely all but over.
