Preview

Essendon will be filthy that they gave the game away against Sydney last weekend, so expect them to come out firing.

Brisbane have shown some excellent signs so far this year, giving their fans something to look forward to. The Lions record against the Bombers over recent time isn’t terrible, their record stands at 2-3 over the past five games.

Winning last week would have put Essendon in a great position, however, they couldn’t get over the line. Back on their home deck, and against the bottom of the ladder side, they should get back on the winners’ list in a must win game.
