Final curtain raiser of the season

The Brisbane Lions NEAFL side will take to the Gabba for the final time this season on Saturday to battle the Gold Coast SUNS. 

After defeating the top-of-the-table Sydney Swans last weekend in a thrilling encounter, the Lions be on the hunt for 11 straight wins on Saturday. 

The Lions prevailed by just five points the last time the two sides met a couple of months ago, and there's a lot at stake in the match, with the Lions potentially able to move past the Swans into first place on the ladder, and the SUNS hoping to shore up a finals spot. 

The NEAFL derby will be a curtain raiser before QClash 14 between the Lions and SUNS.
