Preview

The Demons continue to push on, claiming a huge win against the Saints last round. They now face an easier task against Brisbane, however not a guaranteed four points.

Placed in seventh at the moment, if the Demons win this game, they are very likely to play finals. Coach Simon Goodwin will no doubt be looking to find his best 22, as their has been frequent changes throughout the season.

Brisbane are definitely a chance to cause an upset, they snuck past the Bombers in Melbourne not too long ago. In saying that, it’s very hard to back them here against the Demons
