Charlie: Belief 'keeps growing'

Cameron: I'm enjoying playing good footy Charlie Cameron after to the win against the Gold Coast SUNS in QClash18.

The last time Brisbane played in front of a packed Gabba crowd, it was humiliated by Collingwood.

In front of 34,017 fans, and a huge national television audience, on Easter Thursday, the Lions flopped to the Magpies by 62 points. 

But dynamic forward Charlie Cameron says they'll will be a different proposition against Geelong on Saturday afternoon, playing in front of a second home sellout for the season.

"It was a big game, (Easter) Thursday night and we didn't perform," Cameron said at a Monday afternoon recovery session.

"We've learned a lot as a team.

"I think there's a lot of belief there and it keeps growing."

Brisbane has won eight straight matches, including Saturday night's 91-point drubbing of Gold Coast, and can lock up a top-four spot with victory over the Cats in the top-of-the-table clash.

Cameron said the "expectations" got to the Lions in round five but agreed playing Geelong and Richmond in the final two rounds was the ideal run in to September. 

"It's going to set us up in terms of that's how finals footy is played," he said.

"Our contested ball is going to have to be on top of our game because they (the Cats) have some star players there." 

One headache for Geelong will be Cameron, fresh off six goals against the Suns and in the best form of his career. 

Brisbane coach Chris Fagan likened the impact of the blindingly fast Queenslander to that of former Hawthorn great Cyril Rioli. 

"It's an honour to be compared to Cyril Rioli," Cameron said.

"I remember going to the 2015 Grand Final and they played West Coast, I was doing the Grand Final sprint and he won the Norm Smith (Medal).

"It's a huge honour to be named like him, put in that category, but I've got a long way to go."
