Show Preview

Two premiership hopefuls in need of a win lock horns as the Geelong Cats and Brisbane Lions face off on a Friday night at GMHBA Stadium. Stay up to date with their AFL clash with live scores on The Roar from 7:50pm (AEDT).

Unbackable favourites coming into their season-opening clash against Adelaide, the reigning wooden spooners, Geelong instead laid an egg. They were outworked, outhunted and outclassed in the first half, falling 38 points in arrears at the long break and, although they fought back in the second half, the damage had already been done. To make matters worse, Patrick Dangerfield copped a three-week suspension for rough conduct.

Brisbane suffered a similar fate when they took on Sydney at home later that night. After kicking the first three goals of the game in rapid succession, the Lions just switched off. Despite clawing back a 25-point margin just before half time, they were blown away by a nine-goal-to-two third quarter and trailed by as much as 50 points in the final quarter in a disastrous loss.

The Cats have dominated the Lions for quite some time, winning ten of the last 11 meetings and 20 of 23 dating back to the start of 2006. Brisbane have also lost 11 in a row at Kardinia Park, with their last win coming in 2003 when current Geelong coach Chris Scott kicked the sealer.
