Time to run it back!

It's another must win for our boys this week as we come face to face with an in form Adelaide side. 

You guessed it... it's time to get stuck into this weeks match preview. 

Last Time We Met

Last time: Adelaide 13.12 (90) drew with Brisbane 13.12 (90) Round 9, 2024

The last time we met this game had it all, our clash against the Crows saw the lead change eight times in the first half alone. Our aerial strength, led by Harris Andrews and Jack Payne, proved decisive with a 17-6 contested mark advantage. Despite Adelaide's defensive press, our quick ball movement, led by midfield duo Jarrod Berry and Hugh McCluggage, helped break the lines effectively and get on top in the middle.  

Callum Ah Chee's four goals were critical, with added contributions from Logan Morris and Kai Lohmann. Adelaide's pressure in the third quarter disrupted Brisbane, but errors allowed our boys to regain control and finish strong with three early goals in the final term.

Despite our best efforts neither side could be separated. This Sunday we get to run it back and we know our Lions have their sights set firmly on nothing other than a win at home.

Match-ups we're keen for

They’ll be fierce contests everywhere across the ground Sunday afternoon. This week we’ve leant on the keen analysis of the AFL as to who could be the game shapers this week. This is what the AFL said:

Game Shapers

Will Ashcroft hit the ground running in his first match since overcoming an ACL injury late last season as he gathered 18 disposals in a stirring return. While the 20-year-old might not approach anything near his best until much later in the campaign, he has already added a touch of class that can help the Lions continue their surge through the second half to the year.

Izak Rankine looked unstoppable as he gathered 21 disposals, seven score involvements and booted 2.2 in the first half against the Giants before a lockdown role came his way. The dynamic Rankine is now a key weapon for the Crows, with his pace an asset at centre bounces before he drifts forward to be an option in attack.
