Carlton Blues make a play for former Brisbane Lions coach Justin Leppitsch


Carlton’s pursuit of Leppitsch comes as senior club figures have raised concerns around the team’s coaching panel heading into 2022.

The same concerns were voiced at the end of last season, but the club opted to remain with the same assistants for another season at the request of Teague.

Dale Amos (defence), Cameron Bruce (forwards) and Brent Stanton (midfield) are Carlton’s line coaches. John Barker – who was interim coach when Carlton sacked Mick Malthouse in 2015 – is a long-time assistant at the Blues and is currently stoppages coach.

Former Brisbane champion Luke Power is said to be impressing as development boss.


It’s not the first time in recent seasons that Carlton have sought a senior coaching figure to support Teague.

At the end of 2018, the club had all but secured the services of then Collingwood assistant Justin Longmuir, a long-time friend of Teague’s.

But that plan was railroaded when Longmuir was appointed as Ross Lyon’s successor at Fremantle.

Collingwood, meanwhile, are also on the lookout for a new crop of assistant coaches and Leppitsch has been at the top of Graham Wright’s wish-list.

Both the club and coach Nathan Buckley are yet to publicly commit to the 2022 season, but club sources have told The Age a contract extension is likely to be offered.

The club has already endured major upheaval this year. Wright has taken over from Geoff Walsh as football boss, Ned Guy has resigned as list manager and new president Mark Korda may soon have to deal with an early challenge from former Nine boss Jeff Browne.

Meanwhile, Blues midfielder David Cuningham has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Carlton in a statement on Monday night said scans confirmed the injury that the 24-year-old suffered in the opening minutes of Sunday’s match against Melbourne.

Cuningham will now undergo surgery.

“David worked extremely hard to earn his place back in the 22 this season and was really
putting together some solid football in recent weeks,” Carlton head of football Brad Lloyd.

“This news is always tough to hear but we know what David brings to this football club and we will support him fully throughout his recovery.

“We have no doubt he will now translate that work ethic into his rehab and ensure he is
back out in the navy blue next season.”

AFL 2021: Gold Coast Suns vs. Brisbane Lions, QClash, Metricon Stadium, 73-point win

The last four QClashes have all been decided by more than seven goals, leading fans to label the derby the “worst rivalry in all sport”.

Sunshine State sides Brisbane and Gold Coast contested the 20th QClash on Saturday night, but the game was hardly the hotly contested grudge match it is billed as.

It should have been the Suns’ chance to test their strength against a premiership heavyweight. Instead, Stuart Dew’s men squandered countless opportunities inside 50 and looked lost in defence, succumbing to a 73-point defeat at Metricon Stadium.

It marked the fourth consecutive occasion that the QClash has been decided by a margin of more than seven goals. The Suns have been on the wrong end of the thrashing each time.

Conversely, the Lions roared to their fifth-straight win and their sixth victory in their last seven starts to be seriously threatening the top four as they took their all-time win-loss record in the Queensland derby to 14-6.

Brisbane obliterated the Suns in the third quarter, kicking eight unanswered goals to the home side’s solitary behind as they raced to a commanding 78-point lead at the last change.

The eight-goal blitz was part of a run of 12 unanswered goals across the second and third terms as Brisbane toyed with the Gold Coast, who showed slightly more defensive resistance than a traffic cone.

The Lions ended up kicking 14 straight goals to extend their lead to 91 points until Sam Flanders kicked truly in the fourth term to stop the rot on a horror night for the Gold Coast.

The result could’ve been much worse had the Suns not saved face by slotting four majors to Brisbane’s three in the final term.

The Suns have now lost seven of the last eight QClashes, only defeating their Brisbanian cousins once in the past four years.

The latest defeat left fans to unload on the Suns and the derby, which was termed “the worst rivalry in sport” and “QTrash” on social media.

Midfielder Jarryd Lyons (38 disposals, nine tackles, nine clearances) claimed the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for best-on-ground but the likes of Dan McStay (four goals), Dayne Zorko (34 disposals, seven clearances, eight inside 50s) and Linc McCarthy (two goals) were the very best of a good bunch for Brisbane.

The win came at a cost for Brisbane with Ryan Lester (hamstring), Darcy Gardiner (shoulder) sustaining injuries.

For the Suns, skipper David Swallow fought the good fight along with Noah Anderson and Hugh Greenwood but far too many did far too little for the home side that was thoroughly embarrassed.

A five-goal burst in the second quarter handed Brisbane a 29-point buffer at the main break with McStay leading the Lions charge with three goals at halftime.

McCarthy was especially prominent in the second term with a spectacular grab, two goals and a courageous smother to keep the ball inside Brisbane’s forward half.


Lions defender Darcy Gardiner had a rollercoaster ride. He left the field in the third term with a shoulder injury and attempted a cheeky little kick off the ground while he was in the hands of a trainer. Before his match-ending injury, he took a screaming mark in the third term when he climbed over Josh Corbett and in the first term he took an intercept mark and played on quickly – quite uncharacteristically – to thrust Brisbane into attack.


The 150-game milestone for Ryan Lester was a richly deserved reward for the Lions utility but sadly his night ended early with a hamstring injury. Lester was in and out of the senior side for a chunk of his AFL career, living on one-year deals with the delisting axe never hovering far from his head. But he has found a very nice niche under Chris Fagan and has been a quiet achiever in the club’s recent resurgence.


The true value of Touk Miller to the Gold Coast was laid bare. The midfielder would be leading the Gold Coast’s best-and-fairest count by the length of the M1 and was equal third in the competition-wide Coaches’ votes before this round. His career-best season hit a speed bump when suspension forced him out of the QClash. He was sorely missed in the middle as David Swallow was forced to carry too heavy a load.


The umpires need to be far more consistent with the rule on kicks having to travel 15 metres for the ball to be marked. A handful of kicks that would have been lucky to go 10 metres went undetected by officials but a “not 15” call went against the Suns late in the second quarter with the Sherrin deep inside Brisbane’s attacking 50. The ball spilt loose and Joe Daniher kicked a goal for the Lions.

Lions roar in Q-Clash rout of Suns

Brisbane Lions have destroyed Queensland rivals Gold Coast to keep their top-four charge on track after a 73-point win over the Suns.

The Lions extended their winning run to five matches in a one-sided match at Carrara, charging to a 19.10 (124) to 7.9 (51) victory.

Big forward Daniel McStay kicked a career-best equalling four goals for the visitors, with Charlie Cameron picking up three majors.

McStay had a day out as the Suns’ defence went to water, claiming eight marks in a dominant tall forward display.

Lincoln McCarthy, playing his 50th match for the Lions, kicked two goals and took several big marks while Eric Hipwood, Joe Daniher and Zac Bailey also booted two majors in the rout.

While the forwards hit the scoreboard there were plenty of stars for the Lions across the park with captain Dayne Zorko (34 disposals, one goal, nine marks), ex-Sun Jarryd Lyons (38 disposals, nine clearances, nine tackles) and Hugh McCluggage (23 disposals, eight marks) bossing the midfield.

Lyons’ display was enough for him to be awarded the Marcus Ashcroft Medal as best on ground.

The game was blown apart in an eight goals-to-none third-quarter as the Lions kicked 14 unanswered between the Suns’ third and fourth goals of the match by which time Brisbane had opened up a 91-point lead.

Four late goals added some gloss to the scoreboard for the Suns but the truth was they were comprehensively outplayed.

Gold Coast missed the hard work of suspended Touk Miller but there was no excuse for the Suns’ lack of contest, especially in a dismal third quarter.

The defeat is the Suns’ fifth-straight loss to their local rivals and leaves them 13th on the ladder with just three wins from nine matches.

Brisbane didn’t leave Carrara unscathed however with milestone man Ryan Lester subbed out in the first quarter of his 150th AFL match with a hamstring injury while Darcy Gardiner’s night ended with a dislocated right shoulder late in the third term.

Defender Jack Bowes was also subbed out with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter for the Suns, who next face a daunting trip to Geelong to play the Cats next Saturday.

The Lions are at home next Friday against defending premiers Richmond.

Kangaroos beat Hawks for first win of 2021

North Melbourne have broken through for their first win of the AFL season with a stirring comeback over fellow cellar dwellers Hawthorn in Launceston.

The last-placed Kangaroos came from 32 points down on Saturday afternoon to snap a losing streak stretching back to round nine last season.

Cameron Zurhaar was inspirational in the 13.9 (87) to 12.8 (80) victory, slotting four goals including crucial majors either side of three-quarter time.

Hawthorn’s Luke Breust set up a thrilling finish when he reduced the margin to six points with a running goal inside the final two minutes.

But the Kangaroos held on to give David Noble his maiden win as an AFL coach on his 54th birthday.

Jy Simpkin topped the possession count for the match with 33, while North Melbourne teammate Ben Cunnington was next best with 29.

After scoring the opening point of the match, it took until the beginning of the fourth quarter for North Melbourne to regain the lead.

The lead changed hands twice during the final term, with Tasmanian Tarryn Thomas notching a crucial major for the Kangaroos to open up an 11-point lead with seven minutes to play.

It was a remarkable turnaround after a red hot start by Hawthorn which was spearheaded by Chad Wingard, who kicked two majors from tight angles and had two goal assists in the opening quarter.

Hawthorn opened up a 33-7 point lead at quarter time and were ahead 54-32 at the main break.

The Kangaroos, who found themselves behind by 32 early in the second quarter, mounted a third-term surge, booting four goals to one.

They entered the final term just a point behind after a Zurhaar snap moments before the break.

Taylor Garner was another shining light for the Kangaroos, picking up three goals.

Swans too strong for Magpies at SCG

Sydney Swans have overcome a sluggish start to bank a 30-point AFL win over Collingwood at the SCG, where returning young gun Isaac Heeney kicked three goals.

Both sides struggled to find free space and move the ball freely, with a swirling breeze and lots of pressure ensuring the turnover-riddled game was not much of a spectacle.

Jordan De Goey helped the Magpies shoot out to an 18-point lead early in the first quarter, but the visitors failed to boot a single goal in the second or third terms.

The Swans worked their way into the scrappy contest, seized control in a dominant third quarter and eventually triumphed 10.12 (72) to 5.12 (42).

Lance Franklin was restricted to two goals as Magpies Brayden Maynard, Darcy Moore and Chris Mayne combined to ensure the four-time Coleman medallist was rarely a go-to option.

Heeney and small forward Tom Papley combined for five goals in the low-scoring tussle, while Franklin’s understudy Hayden McLean grabbed a game-high five contested marks.

Heeney, who missed the club’s tight loss to Melbourne at the MCG last weekend because of an ankle injury, also had 22 possessions and six marks in a productive comeback.

Sydney ruckman Tom Hickey finished with a game-high eight clearances, while Callum Mills, Justin McInerney and Jake Lloyd were also influential for the hosts.

Heeney’s third goal, coming in the 17th minute of the final quarter, proved the sealer as Sydney made it a 6-3 start to a season in which they were widely tipped to finish outside the top eight again.

In a match with limited fodder for the end-of-round highlight reel, Papley’s second goal stood out as due reward for a spectacular piece of hard work.

The 24-year-old took possession of an in-dispute ball on the half-back flank, danced past a would-be tackler, fended off Steele Sidebottom then had a bounce as he sprinted through the middle of the ground.

The Sherrin passed to Sam Wicks and McLean before returning to a hard-running Papley, who nailed his set shot after holding a mark in the forward line.

The Swans next face Fremantle, Carlton, St Kilda and Hawthorn as they seek to clamber into the top four, while Collingwood’s finals hopes are fading fast as they prepare to host Port Adelaide at the MCG.

Lions’ roar getting louder after blowing away Gold Coast Suns

After a slow start to the season, the Brisbane Lions have continued their push up the ladder with their fifth win in a row, blowing away the Gold Coast Suns by 73 points in a tepid clash at Metricon Stadium.

These games have had their share of fire and spice over the last decade, but the Suns looked listless and disorganised, especially in defence, where the Lions were allowed to take far too many uncontested marks.

The game was over by early in the third quarter, the Lions potting 14 straight from the second quarter. The lack of intensity and discipline from the Suns against their state rivals would have distressed coach Stuart Dew, with their season slipping to three wins from nine rounds.

And as the quarter wore on, things really fell apart for the Suns as the Lions were more or less allowed to do as they pleased, piling on 8.1 to a solitary behind. Three of them came from free kicks, two of those including 50 metre penalties.

Yes, the Suns were missing Touk Miller, their prime mover in the midfield this year, through suspension. But the Lions are missing Brownlow medallist Lachie Neale and Jarrod Berry, too. They also lost defender Ryan Lester early in his 150th match to a hamstring injury.

The Lions have plenty of backup in the middle, though. Jarrod Lyons, whom the Suns gave up to the Lions for next to nothing, won the Marcus Ashcroft for best on ground and was indefatigable in the centre alongside captain Dayne Zorko.

In defence, Harris Andrews easily accounted for Ben King, one of the premier young forwards in the competition, and Brandon Starcevich destroyed Izak Rankine, who barely had a touch.

But it was in attack – albeit against some very sloppy defence – where the Lions cleaned up. Daniel McStay continues to thrive with four goals, Charlie Cameron another three, and Eric Hipwood, Joe Daniher and Lincoln McCarthy two each.

McCarthy, who struggled for so long with injuries while at Geelong, has quietly built a resume as one of the best defensive forwards in the competition. His game is now a fully rounded balance of brilliance and pressure acts; he is also superb overhead.

Brisbane Lions beat Fremantle Dockers to go fifth after round eight, after wins to Western Bulldogs, West Coast

The Brisbane Lions have moved up to fifth on the ladder with a 18-point win over Fremantle in their game at the Gabba.

The Dockers were supposed to play the Lions in Perth before COVID-19 concerns sent the team east to play in Brisbane.

Chris Fagan’s men took the lead at the two-minute mark and were never headed again as they won their fourth game in a row.

In earlier games, Carlton gave up a lead against the Western Bulldogs to lose by 16 points, and West Coast won away from home for the first time in 2021 with a victory over Hawthorn at the MCG. 

Brisbane vs Fremantle

Hugh McCluggage has again oozed class in a 24-point Brisbane win over Fremantle at the Gabba.

The silky Lions wingman ensured the absence of injured Brownlow Medallist Lachie Neale wasn’t felt as the hosts ran out 14.11 (95) to 10.11 (71) winners.

McCluggage finished with 27 disposals, one goal and four goal assists, standing tall in the first half as they built a match-winning lead.

His service to the Lions’ small forwards stood out, McCluggage spinning out of the clutches of two Dockers tacklers and hitting Charlie Cameron on the chest as the lead swelled to 34 points at half-time.

Every Lions forward kicked a goal but Cameron (11 marks, three goals, five behinds) was the standout with five first-quarter marks inside 50m, only inaccuracy robbing him of a night out against the West Australians.

Two goals each to Caleb Serong and Matt Taberner, including one either side of half-time from the tall forward, gave the visitors a sniff but Cameron’s third and a drilled major from Jarryd Lyons (30 disposals) quickly snuffed that out.

The lead hit 47 points in the third term before Fremantle kicked the game’s last three goals, while Fremantle also led the inside-50 count 52-49.

The Lions’ fourth straight win moved them to 5-3 and up to fifth ahead of Sydney and West Coast — a win behind third-placed Port Adelaide — after they’d slumped to 1-3, while it was the Dockers’ (4-4) second-straight loss.

As against Port last week, the Lions’ defensive pressure was enough to strangle the Dockers’ in a decisive first half, Nat Fyfe (27 touches, 18 contested possessions, eight clearances) unable to break the game open.

When he finally did see some ball in the third term, Fyfe was let down by his boot, missing a soccered goal from point-blank range then following up with a behind from a set-shot from a similar spot.

Daniel Rich (31 touches) continued his strong form while Andrew Brayshaw (28) and David Mundy (27) supported Fyfe.

Connor Blakely was subbed in for Dockers forward Michael Frederick (ankle) in the first term.

The Lions play neighbours Gold Coast on Saturday while the Dockers, after the recent COVID-19 outbreak in their home state, will remain on the Gold Coast before their next game against Essendon at Docklands on Sunday.

Blues lose to Bulldogs in Docklands shootout

AAP: Hamish Blair


Carlton coach David Teague delivered on his promise of an AFL shootout but the Blues have come off second best in a 16-point loss to the Western Bulldogs.

During his midweek press conference, Teague predicted an attacking contest and implored his side to take on the competition’s highest-scoring team with an “open, free-flowing” brand of football.

It worked a treat during the second and third quarters as the Blues’ pace and ball movement saw them break out to a 27-point lead.

But momentum shifted during time-on of the third term as the Bulldogs’ midfield lifted to help power their side to a 16.11 (107) to 13.13 (91) win.

The Dogs kicked eight of the last nine goals, tallying 8.4 to 1.3 in the final 35 minutes.

Aaron Naughton (two goals) put them in front with less than eight minutes left and Patrick Lipinski sealed the result in the dying stages.

Josh Bruce kicked five goals for the Bulldogs in another strong performance in attack as Tom Liberatore, Jackson Macrae and Marcus Bontempelli shone through the midfield.

It was the fifth time this season and third game in succession that Carlton have coughed up a triple-figure score to the opposition.


Their defeat came despite Eddie Betts’ biggest goal haul in navy blue for almost a decade.

Betts lit up the Blues’ forward line with four of their first five majors, including an outrageous snap out of mid-air after tapping the ball to his own advantage.

He finished with five goals and Harry McKay kicked four to move into outright first on the Coleman Medal leaderboard.

Ed Curnow, Sam Walsh and ruckman Marc Pittonet were among the Blues’ best as boom recruit Zac Williams had just nine disposals on a quiet day.

Carlton’s Jack Silvagni was substituted out of the match after suffering a head knock.

The Bulldogs will travel to take on fellow flag contenders Port Adelaide on Saturday night, while the Blues face another daunting challenge against unbeaten Melbourne next Sunday.

Eagles grab key win at the MCG

Midfield aces Dom Sheed, Tim Kelly, and Andrew Gaff have powered West Coast to a first win away from Perth this season.

In a dour scrap at the MCG, the Eagles had too much class for struggling Hawthorn to prevail by 38 points in front of just 15,277 fans on Mother’s Day.

The small crowd sat through an early snoozefest, with neither team scoring a goal until four minutes into the second quarter – the first goal-less first term in normal length games since round four, 2012.

West Coast blew the game open with seven goals to two in the second quarter to set-up the 14.14 (98) to 8.12 (60) victory.

However, the Eagles were rocked late when star veteran Josh Kennedy finished the match on the bench with ice on his right calf.

West Coast’s biggest win against the Hawks at the MCG could have been even larger as they dominated inside-50s 63-35.

The win — their first in four attempts in Victoria this year — will be of sweet relief to Eagles coach Adam Simpson.

The 2018 premiership coach labelled his team “weak” and “embarrassing” in their 97-point thrashing at the hands of the Cats in Geelong two weeks ago.

Flag hero Sheed and former Cats onballer Kelly set the tone, taking full advantage of ruckman Nic Naitanui’s slick tap work.

Joined by Gaff, the trio were shining lights during the largely uneventful round-eight contest.

Brendon Ah Chee provided a spark up forward for the Eagles, slotting the game’s first two goals and finished with a career-high of four majors.

Champion Hawks midfielder Tom Mitchell was up to his normal tricks with 41 possessions while teammates Jarman Impey and James Worpel also battled hard.

West Coast moved to a 5-3 record ahead on next Sunday’s match against Adelaide at Perth Stadium, while the 17th-placed Hawks host winless North Melbourne in Launceston on Saturday.

Fremantle Dockers vs. Brisbane Lions, Gabba, Charlie Cameron

Brisbane warmed up for this Saturday’s QClash with the Gold Coast with a clinical 24-point disposal of Fremantle at the Gabba on Sunday night.

The match was originally set down for Perth’s Optus Stadium but was transferred to Brisbane due to COVID cases in WA.

But it would not have mattered where the teams played as the Lions controlled the contest and collected the premiership points in the businesslike manner you would expect from a seasoned side that is expected to contend for the flag.

Brisbane cruised to their fourth-straight win and their fifth victory from their last six starts to move to fifth on the ladder while the Dockers dropped back to a 4-4 record and the mid-table dogfight.

After a slow start to their 2021 campaign, the Lions are rumbling nicely now with the likes of Jarryd Lyons, Daniel Rich, Hugh McCluggage, Charlie Cameron, Dayne Zorko and Harris Andrews to the fore again.

But it was a classic team effort as the backline was stingy, the midfield got plenty of the Sherrin and the forward line shared the spoils.

David Mundy and Nat Fyfe battled manfully for the Dockers who were outclassed and out-muscled for much of the day as the final margin flattered the visitors who kicked some junk time goals.

Brisbane extended their advantage to 47 points midway through the third term after goals to Lyons and Dan McStay but Freo dragged back the margin to 32 points at the last break after goals to Fyfe, Mundy and Michael Walters.

The Lions roared to a 34-point cushion at halftime with Callum Ah Chee, Rhys Mathieson and Cameron all hitting the scoreboard while the only resistance from Fremantle came from a Matt Taberner major.

Fremantle’s Caleb Serong kicked the first goal of the match but it was all Brisbane after that in the first term with the twin towers of Eric Hipwood and Joe Daniher getting the ball rolling for the home side who took a 21-point buffer into the first change.

The Dockers had more inside 50 entries and more clearances but Brisbane were far more efficient with McCluggage, Linc McCarthy and Cameron all profiting from the Lions’ better ball use and superior defensive pressure with goals of their own.

The Dockers lost Michael Frederick in the first term with an ankle when Fremantle were forced to activate medical substitute Connor Blakely.


After bouncing back to form in the win over Port Adelaide with four goals, Charlie Cameron was lively again. He looked very dangerous early with five marks inside 50 and four shots at goal in the first term. But it only yielded one goal and three behinds. He eventually cashed in with two more goals and a total of 14 disposals and 11 marks.


Jarryd Lyons is an unsung workhorse in the Brisbane midfield. Others in the Lions on-ball division attract the headlines but Lyons quietly accumulates great numbers on a weekly basis. He does the dirty work that allows others to flourish. Lyons kicked a goal and had 30 disposals, six clearances, nine inside 50s, 11 scoring involvements and 11 contested possessions. How did both Adelaide and Gold Coast let him go?


To beat Brisbane in Brisbane, you need a lot to go right. Coming off a trouncing in the WA Derby, the Dockers had a disrupted week with the match being moved from Optus Stadium to the Gabba. Freo was flat early and showed little signs of life for most of the match as the Lions got on top and stayed there.


The attendance of 15,403 was above expectations. Fremantle have never been – and never will be – great drawcards at the Gabba and the late switch in venues only allowed Brisbane a handful of days to market the game. Throw in the clash with Mother’s Day and the twilight timeslot on a ‘school night’ and it was a tough sell – even with free entry for all kids 15 and under.

Brisbane Lions vs Fremantle Dockers Preview

Fremantle had plenty of support last week in the Derby against West Coast but had their pants pulled down in a really disappointing performance.

Fortunately for them they get to stay in Perth this week and will host the Brisbane Lions at Optus Stadium.

The Lions have found their form and had a really impressive win over Port Adelaide last week.

On paper there is no doubt the Lions are the better team here. I’m backing them to win but in Perth you can never be to confident backing against the home side.

Market Update:

The Lions go into Sunday nights match as the heavily backed favourites at $1.22 after opening at $1.21 on Monday.

The Dockers have pretty much held their price throughout in a game that punters haven’t really wanted to get involved in.

Brisbane Lions rev engines with comfortable win over Fremantle Dockers

The Brisbane Lions were irresistible at times, sloppy at others but completed a victory over the Fremantle Dockers at the Gabba on Sunday night.

A five-goal opening term gave the Lions the advantage and they held control of the contest for the rest of the match as the ball-moving prowess of Daniel Rich (31 disposals), Jarryd Lions (30 disposals) and Zac Bailey and their potent forward line kept the scoreboard ticking over.

This wasn’t a sparkling display from the Lions but in a hectic, exhausting season there is value in a win where the team could work at a brisk pace plus have a few laughs while collecting the four points, and to do so without the injured Lachie Neale adds to the value.

Fremantle did cut the lead to 24 points late on but the result was an honest reflection of their current standing. They are a middle-of-the-road team with old stars, young talent and a very thin middle.

Nat Fyfe, David Mundy and Michael Walters are still among their best few players, while Caleb Serong, Sean Darcy, Tobe Watson and Andrew Brayshaw look to have promising futures.

Outside of that group, James Aish, Matt Taberner, Michael Hastings and Nathan Wilson are all performing solidly, while most other positions in the side are up for grabs.

That inconsistency was reflected in this match as the Lions could stream quality players through every line on the field and the Dockers could only move when their old stars moved forward or their young stars could link together.

Lions defender Harris Andrews was too strong at the back, their midfield runners were powerful through the middle corridor or the wings and then Charlie Cameron and Eric Hipwood were causing trouble up forward.
