Zorko on Triple M Dayne Zorko speaks to Triple M ahead of the Lions QClash game this weekend.

Brisbane Lions midfielder Dayne Zorko told Triple M Breakfast this morning that the Club are concentrating on securing a second Q Clash victory this year and are ignoring the drama surrounding their Gold Coast opponent.  

Speaking to Marto, Ed and Robin he said, “The outside noise can go on outside the Club but inside we’re focused on the game ahead."

Zorko agreed the Suns should not be underestimated despite losing Coach Rodney Eade this week and Captain Tom Lynch and Gary Ablett ruled out because of injury.

“I think with a new coach you definitely want to try and prove something but we don’t really talk about it at the Football Club at all. We just go about business,” he said.

“We have our structures and our game plans that we want to stick to and we just want to execute them as best as possible.”

Zorko says the Lions’ close loss to the Western Bulldogs in Round 20 has provided the team confidence heading into tomorrow’s clash against the Suns. He believes the younger players have started to find their groove and make a stronger impact on field as they gain more experience at Senior level.

“More aggressive, now that the younger kids are starting to get a few more games under their belt, they're starting to pick up the speed of the game. Our game plan is starting to click with a lot of the players. Our ball movement has been really good,” he said.

The Brisbane Lions will aim for their second Q Clash victory this year against the Gold Coast Suns tomorrow at 4:35pm at the Gabba.
