The Lions (8-1, 151.8%) look ominous right now as potentially the biggest threat to Melbourne, having won five games in a row to sit second on the ladder.

Brisbane loses Marcus Adams to health and safety protocols, but Chris Fagan’s side is otherwise well settled.

This match gets underway at 3:20pm AEST from UTAS Stadium.
