Welcome win over Blues but Lions seeking consistency
LIONS coach Chris Fagan had a big decision to make as he walked to the rooms following their 30- point victory over Carlton last night.
Did he greet his players with the mother of all sprays or did he start with the positives and save the anger for the review?
Because there is Lions deserve both.
Brisbane’s performance in the 17.10 ( 112) to 11.16 ( 82) win was at times no doubt the scintillating and others appalling but it was never boring.
It was similar to the last Q- Clash, a brilliant start, a mid- match slumber party and a gutsy finish.
The best crowd of the year, 18, 847, found their voice in a stunning first half and were collectively in the foetal position in the third quarter when the Blues launched their comeback.
The first half was the most exciting footy the Lions have produced under Fagan. Their ball movement was slickk and they negotiated with ease e Carlton’s defensive wall, they were e hard at the contest and they were ablee to score heavily.
While Tom Rockliff did a super r shut- down job on Bryce Gibbs, restricting him to just eight touches, Dayne Zorko was the architect of the e win with a brilliant first half.
He ran amok, finishing the game e with 26 touches and three goals.
