FULL TIME

Carlton remains stuck at the foot of the ladder as Brisbane ran riot at the Gabba.

Eric Hipwood booted six in the Lions’ 65-point win.

Leigh Matthews said Dayne Beams was the best afield from the first bounce.

Beams racked up some very impressive numbers in a solid four-quarter effort:

Lethal said the Blues had no second plan in attack when Charlie Curnow is quiet.

“Curnow only had six kicks. I thought Gardiner beat him easily,” Lethal said.

“There was no one else.”

THE BUILD-UP

Wins are rare for the bottom two sides on the ladder.

So when they come up against each other, both will see it as a huge opportunity to bank four points.

The stage is set for a hard-fought contest – and with exciting young forwards Charlie Curnow and Eric Hipwood at either end, there are fireworks ahead.
