From the first quarter it looked as though Hawthorn had this one locked away with a 25-point lead at the first change.

But the Lions made a comeback in the second term with the help of two early goals from Rayner and Mathieson.

Hawthorn held up a good defense but in the end Brisbane’s midfield was exceptional and help produce a win.

The Lions struggled in the first quarter as they failed to kick a goal, but they had major serge in the second half which put them with seven points of the Hawks at half-time.

If they continue this way into the second half they have a real chance of a win at home.

Brisbane hung their heads low after a devastating loss to Freo last week when Michael Walters kicked the winning point.

The Lions will be looking to redeem themselves and a home turf advantage might settle them a spot in the top eight.

Hawthorn come off the back of a win over Port Adelaide and a second win would see them gain some momentum.
