Brisbane midfielder Josh Dunkley has quickly denied any semblance of a disadvantage the club has when having to travel interstate more often than not.

In a competition where the numbers are skewed toward games in Victoria given the sheer number (10) of clubs that are located in the state, "interstate" sides are forced to do the bulk of the travelling.

Dunkley's Lions are the fourth most travelled side, registering nearly 50,000 km around the country throughout the season, according to NewsCorp.

When pressed about whether it's a hindrance, the former Bulldog shrugged off any claim of its effects on the side, admitting it's a part of the process he enjoys.

"You definitely travel more," Dunkley admitted on Friday.

"Every second week you're going somewhere but I don't find it too different. It's just the process of being an interstate club.

"Whether there's an advantage or disadvantage to it, I personally like getting on the road and travelling with the boys. I don't really look into it too much other than the fact we get to go play in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide (and everywhere else)."

Brisbane is setting the stage for a Saturday night encounter with Richmond at the Gabba, but will be away from their home ground for four weeks.

Following the upcoming Round 10 match-up, the Lions are set to have a pair of games at Marvel Stadium spread over the mid-season bye, meaning it'll be almost a month between clashes at their fortress.

Brisbane WON BY 119 POINTS

As for the tough on-baller, Saturday brings up his 150th AFL game (116 - Bulldogs, 33* - Brisbane), to which he still feels the need to pinch himself.

"It feels like an in-between milestone but it still makes me reflect on the whole journey I've had," Dunkley said.

"I'm very grateful for the opportunity to run out and play 150 games and I hope there's a few more to come.

"I remember looking back when I was a kid growing up and seeing all these players play 100, 200 and now 300 games, it's pretty special.

"And to be a role model to a lot of people is an absolute honour."

Dunkley, who's the son of former Sydney player Andrew - says he is "not content" with the 150-game tag, eyeing off a record that is a little more personal.

"Definitely not content (with 150 games) but I'd be lying to say that I wasn't chasing down my old man's 217 games," Dunkley quipped.

"So hopefully I get to that at one point and then get him."
