Lions take a bite out of the Eagles

West Coast have lost two straight games after going down to Brisbane by 30-points at the GABBA on Saturday night.

The Eagles may have lead the way at half time, but the Lions came out firing in the second half kicking three quick goals to get ahead and steal the win, 10.14 (74) to 6.8 (44).

Hugh McCluggage was dominant for his team with 26 disposals, as was Lachie Neale who clocked up 32 disposals and two goals for the Lions.

Andrew Gaff was impressive in his milestone 200th game with 30 disposals and although Liam Ryan kicked three goals, it wasn’t enough for the Eagles.

Will Schofield came in for the suspended Jeremy McGovern while Brisbane had a big out with their skipper Dayne Zorko a late exclusion for the Lions.
