    We last met the Blues in round 21 at the Gabba. The Lions' midfield laid the platform for victory, led by bullocking ruckman Oscar McInerney, Brownlow medalist Lachie Neale (32 disposals), prolific Hugh McCluggage (28) and ever-energetic Rhys Mathieson (24). Zac Bailey was back to his damaging best with four goals, while captain Dayne Zorko (22 disposals) had maximum impact with his touches.

    Brisbane Bash Blues For Fifth Win In A Row

    Star recruit Josh Dunkley showed exactly why Brisbane was forced to pay a high price to prise him from the Western Bulldogs after putting on a show in Friday night's win over Carlton at Marvel Stadium.

    Star recruit Josh Dunkley showed exactly why Brisbane was forced to pay a high price to prise him from the Western Bulldogs after putting on a show in Friday night's win over Carlton at Marvel Stadium.

    The 26-year-old went head-to-head with Brownlow medallist Patrick Cripps and won that game within the game, limiting the influence of the Carlton skipper and producing a dominant display to lead the Lions to a fifth straight win by 26 points that will see them return to Queensland on top of the ladder.

    After requesting a trade to Brisbane days before he won the Charles Sutton Medal last year, Dunkley produced his best game yet since that blockbuster deal, amassing 33 disposals, 14 contested possessions, 13 tackles, six clearances and 555 metres gained in the 15.10 (100) to 11.8 (74) win. 

    The game was all but over at three-quarter time after Chris Fagan's side kicked five goals to none in a third-quarter blitz that resulted in a chorus of boos and thousands of frustrated Carlton supporters streaming out of Docklands.

    It was billed as Charlie v Charlie in the build-up, but it was Cameron rather than Curnow who fired. 

    00:29

    The 2019 All-Australian kicked two of his four goals in the game-changing run after half-time, while Zac Bailey converted three of his four majors in the same blitz that strengthened Brisbane's premiership credentials and cast further doubt around Carlton's legitimacy in 2023. 

    While those two enjoyed a lick of the ice cream on Friday night, Carlton's Coleman medallists – Harry McKay and Charlie Curnow – were well beaten by Brisbane co-captain Harris Andrews and budding backman Jack Payne, who held their direct opponents to one goal each. 

    03:02

    The signs were ominous early when Brisbane kicked three goals in the first 10 minutes before Carlton got going. By the first break, each side had five goals each on the board in an old-fashioned shootout. 

    But it didn't last. The game ground to a halt in the second quarter before Brisbane sprung to life after half-time, punishing the Blues on turnover to continue their strong recent record under the roof at Marvel Stadium.

    Michael Voss' men smashed West Coast in Perth last Saturday night, but after disappointing performances against Adelaide and St Kilda before that the Blues will be put under the microscope after being beaten all over the ground in front of 45,848 people on the Friday night stage.

    00:42

    After kicking five goals in a first-quarter shootout, Carlton added only two more across the middle two quarters.

    The Blues kicked five late to make the final margin look more palatable than it deserved to be, but it was too little, too late.

    00:20

    Dunkley essentially cost pick No.21 and a future first-round pick in a complex deal that involved a swap of other picks. That deal looks like great business for a side that is in the hunt to win its first premiership since 2003. 

    Charlie feels the Payne
    When Marcus Adams was ruled out for the season before a ball was bounced, the Lions looked vulnerable done back. But it hasn’t proven to be the case. Jack Payne has risen from obscurity to prove to be a gun stopper alongside the co-captain. While Harris Andrews kept Harry McKay to one goal and six touches, Payne handled the other Coleman medallist in navy blue, restricting Charlie Curnow to just one goal after he booted nine last start. 

    Four more for Cameron
    Nic Newman has done some big jobs this year. He got the better of Toby Greene and Izak Rankine, but he couldn't stop Charlie Cameron on Friday night. The star small forward is now up to 26 majors for the year – the third most in the competition – and well on his way to a second All-Australian blazer.
