GAME DAY: Brisbane v Western Bulldogs from the Gabba | 3AW Radio
FULL TIME: The Lions have completed a huge upset, running out eight points winners and leaping off the bottom of the ladder.
The loss does not affect the Bulldogs after Geelong beat Adelaide, meaning the Dogs won’t have to travel for their Elimination Final.
HALF TIME: It’s the Dogs by eight points at the main break.
The Bulldogs opened up a 31-point lead at quarter time, but a blitz from the Lions early in the second saw them hit the front. Late goals to Jake Stringer, Marcus Bontempelli, and Stewart Crameri restored the Dogs’ lead.
LISTEN: Brisbane CEO Greg Swann joined the commentary box at half time
A win is absolutely essential for the Bulldogs if they are to avoid travelling to Adelaide for their Elimination Final.
LISTEN: Bulldog assistant Daniel Giansiracusa speaks to 3AW Football before the match
The Dogs travelled to Perth a fortnight ago, and this trip to Brisbane has added to their late-season miles.
Another road trip for the finals would be unpleasant.
Will the Dogs walk away from the Gabba with a home final in the bag? Or can the Lions spring an upset – and avoid the wooden spoon in the process?
