The Gabba, 12.55 pm
Saturday, 23 June

Watch the live-stream of the match below: 

Head to Lions NEAFL Twitter account for score updates and player stats throughout the match. 

There's plenty of reasons to be excited for tomorrow's NEAFL clash between the Brisbane Lions and GWS Giants!

For the first time this year, the NEAFL side will play before the Senior side at the Gabba.

Sam Skinner is also set to make his return from an ACL tear that occurred in Round 21 last year against the Giants in the NEAFL. 

Lions fans will be able to get their first look at draftee Toby Wooller who has been sidelined for the season so far with a finger injury. 

Cedric Cox and Connor Ballenden are also back in the side after missing the last couple of matches through injury. 

The Lions will be out to arrest a three-match losing streak and should have plenty of run in their legs following last week's bye. 

The Giants also had the bye last week and are impressive form after a tough start to the season. They have won their past three matches in dominant fashion. 

The two sides met earlier this year in Round 4 with the Lions recording a resounding 93-point victory.
