Both the Demons and the mighty Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) are coming off EPIC wins last week and meet this Saturday night.

How’s the ticker after the Lions gave the live ladder a workout last Saturday?

Brisbane managed to get into the top four by the miniscule margin of 0.5 percent, knocking off the Western Bulldogs into fifth and ensuring the double-chance.

It was Lincoln McCarthy’s behind (it was a behind, I saw it with my own eyes at the ground) in the dying seconds that did it, turning it into the most epic 31 point lead in the last 30 seconds of a match you will ever see.

Our boys look well placed and are in good form leading up to the business end of the season.

The likes of Joe Daniher booting four goals, Lachie Neale in the middle and getting Daniel Rich up back all played a vital role in ensuring that the Lions have a double chance and can make a real impact heading into September.

Then there is the Dees efforts last week, coming back from 44-points down at Geelong with big Maxy Gawn kicking a goal after the siren to ensure the minor premiership.

It was truly one of the all-time great finishes to a home and away season finishes of all-time and arguably one of the greatest Melbourne Football Club wins in the past 60-years.

Can they back it up against a rampant and hungry Brisbane Lions (Proudly sponsored by Neds) outfit in Adelaide this Saturday night?


They’ll give it a good old shake, but the Lions should be able to get the job done and book themselves a spot in the Preliminary Final at the Gabba.

It should be a beauty.
