THE TEAM NEWS

BRISBANE LIONS

  • Brisbane Lions missed the chance to claim the minor premiership as their nine-match winning streak came to an end against Richmond Tigers with the Lions finishing second due to possessing a lower percentage than Geelong Cats.
  • That might take some bouncing back from by the Lions after their great run of form had left them top of the ladder heading into the final round of matches but the untimely defeat ultimately cost them the prize.
  • The panic button has been left untouched by the Lions following that loss with just the single change for this encounter as Cedric Cox makes way for Allen Christensen who is back from a hamstring injury.

RICHMOND TIGERS

  • Richmond Tigers secured their place in the top 4 with their ninth win in a row as they defeated Brisbane Lions and they will be confident of making it to the Preliminary Finals on the back of such an impressive run of form.
  • The Tigers were too good as they made it 13 successive victories over the Lions and now face the same opponents in this Qualifying Final with history very much on the side of the team from Melbourne.
  • Just one change is made to the Richmond line-up from their previous contest with Noah Balta omitted from the side and he is replaced by Toby Nankervis who is fit again following groin soreness.

THE PREDICTION

Richmond Tigers head into the final AFL finals as the form team in the competition and they will be confident of a run at the Grand Final. They have won nine games in a row which has seen them earn a second chance at progression to the Preliminary Finals if they fail to win this week. They face Brisbane Lions who they defeated in the final game of the season to prevent their opponents winning the minor premiership and with the Lions failing to beat the Tigers in any of their last 13 attempts, Richmond can extend their brilliant run of form as well as their streak over Brisbane.
