Brisbane’s only 2016 win, over the Gold Coast back in Round 4, seems like an eternity ago.
A lot has gone wrong for the Lions on and off the field since then.
The Eagles sit 8th after being humbled by Adelaide on their home patch last week.
With Nic Naitanui (Achilles) and Scott Lycett (club sanction) missing, the door has opened for journeyman Jon Giles to make his third club debut.
Can the Lions exploit the Eagles’ weakened ruck division to full effect? Or will the Eagles take four points back to Perth?
Find out with the No. 1 commentary team in the game on 3AW Football.
TODAY’S LINE-UP from 12PM: Leigh Matthews, Caroline Wilson, Tim Lane, Tony Leonard.
