Round 10 v Richmond

There’s no time to go into the working week in the comfort that the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) thrashed Essendon to the tune of 61 points.

But gee whiz wasn’t it great to give the Bombers a touch-up and do it for Robbo in his 200th game!

We’re straight back on the horse down the M1 to take on the Tigers this Tuesday night in what is set up to be a mouthwatering contest.

It’s been a bloody long time since we’ve beaten Richmond and as they say, there’s never been a better time to chalk up the W against our fellow big-cat jungle foe and to get one back from last year’s qualifying final.

A history lesson for you – Round 7, 2009 was the last time we beat Richmond when the Lions got the job done by 26 points at the MCG.

Round 10, 1991 was the last time Brisbane and Richmond met at Carrara, to which the Bears lost by 7 points.

More importantly – the last time we played the Tigers despite an outstanding first half, the Dustin Martin Show kicked in and we went down to them by 47 points in the 2019 qualifying final at the Gabba.

Watching those up and about Tiger fans at the Gabba that night did not make for a pleasant experience.

With the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) currently sitting second on the ladder now is the time to get this Tiger off our back.

Richmond has been getting back to being a threat and there would be nothing better to just pipe them down a bit.

The Tigers are still missing around six of their best players and while they are still getting the wins, we’ve got a relatively clean bill of health and our recent performances have shown we are yet again rightfully in the mix this season.

Tuesday presents us with a great opportunity for the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) to prove we mean business this season.

We’ve done it already and we’ll do it again.

The Charlie Cameron Show
Charlie Cameron First Goal Kicker

How about that Charlie Cameron?

Four goals in our big win over the Bombers, including two in the first quarter which put the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) in good stead for the rest of the night.

Not only that, but he’s now put pen to paper on a deal that will see him at the Gabba until 2025 – you little beauty!

The contest between Charlie and Richmond’s Dylan Grimes will be one to look out for, but I’ve got a feeling this time it’s going to fall in the man with the motorbike’s favour.

When we faced the Tiges back in Round 23 last season, Grimes kept Cameron to two goals from seven disposals.

Two weeks later in the qualifying final, Charlie managed just one goal for another seven disposals.

No doubt Charlie has been studying how and what he can improve on.

If he can get the first goal of the game, the motorbike will be in top gear for another exciting episode of the Charlie Cameron Show.

Dusting off the Disposals
Lachie Neale 30+ Disposals

The stats for 2020 Brownlow Medalist Lachie Neale speak for themselves.

There will be much hype about the battle between Lachie Neale and Dustin Martin.

While Dusty looked good last week, our Lachie just kept racking up the disposals and will need to yet again suffer another serious case of leather poisoning if we’re going to break our 14 game losing streak against the Tigers.

I’ve got him down for yet another dominant performance this Tuesday night.
