Aussie Rules: Lions in need of Hawks response

Brisbane Lions will be looking to bounce back from a rare defeat and consolidate their place in the top four when they take on Hawthorn on Saturday.

The Lions have lost some ground on Collingwood and Port Adelaide and need to get back on track if they are to keep alive their hopes of making the top two. 

Meanwhile, Adelaide will hope to push their way into the top when they take on a West Coast side that have won just the one game this season. 

To wrap up the action on Saturday, Fremantle return from the bye and will be keen to continue where they left off with another win against Richmond Tigers.

OddsHawthorn 4.20, Brisbane 1.23

The Lions got the chance to rest and recover during the bye last week and will be keen to come out flying after losing their last game against Adelaide. 

Chris Fagan’s side had won seven games on the bounce, before losing to the Crows at the Adelaide Oval, and they will be keen to bounce back. 

Each of their three defeats this season have come outside of Brisbane and that could give Hawthorn some hope. 

The Hawks have been a much-improved side of late and had picked up back-to-back wins over West Coast Eagles and St Kilda before losing at Port Adelaide on Saturday. 

There was no shame in that result against a side that look set to challenge for the flag this season. Hawthorn do have a good record against Brisbane, winning the last two by five and 12 points, and they are priced at 8.00 to win by 1-12 points on Saturday.

Adelaide are struggling to pick up back-to-back wins at the moment, winning one and then losing one, and have slipped down the ladder. 

They remain in ninth spot and well in the mix for finals, something they would have taken at the start of the campaign. Their form at the Adelaide Oval has been solid when seeing off top sides Brisbane and St Kilda at the venue in the last two games. 

West Coast on the other hand continue to struggle and have won just the one game so far. However, there have been signs of improvement and they did give Collingwood a run for their money before fading late on at the weekend. 

Oscar Allen continues to shine with 32 goals this season and he can be backed at 8.00 to boot the first goal.

Following a disappointing start to the season, Fremantle have found their form and have won the last four games on the bounce. 

They beat Melbourne at the MCG last start and probably would have preferred to play on rather than have the bye. 

Fremantle have won their last two games at Optus Stadium against Geelong and Hawthorn and should be on a high going into the Tigers clash. 

The last two games between the two sides have been very tight and the Dockers are priced at 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.  

Richmond bounced back from straight defeats and the loss of coach Damien Hardwick to beat GWS by six points last weekend.
