The Brisbane Lions are facing an important game against premiers Geelong tomorrow night.

And at Suncorp Stadium, the Broncos will kick off in their home state clash against the Gold Coast Titans.

Rachel Riley reports.


The Brisbane Broncos aren’t taking this match for granted.

The Titans are on a high following last week’s shock win over Premiers Manly.

It’ll be one of the few opportunities fans can catch the Broncos at Suncorp in the coming weeks.

After tonight there’ll only be two home games until round 16.

Over at the Gabba the Brisbane Lions will go from playing last year’s wooden spooners Gold Coast to defending Premiers Geelong tomorrow night.

Coach Michael Voss is prepared for one of their toughest games of the season.

Michael Voss, Brisbane Lions Coach: “You’d be a foolish man to suggest Geelong never bring their best.”

Victory will have a very special meaning to the club and for one of its star players.

Tomorrow night’s clash will be veteran midfielder Simon Black’s 300th game and the Gabba will be a sea of support with ten thousand Simon Black masks to be given away.

And A-league champions Brisbane Roar had their last hit out before heading to Japan for their next Asian Champions League game.

They’ll have to put the memory of their Grand final victory behind them, as they prepare to take on FC Tokyo in the penultimate group match.

It’ll be Brisbane’s first game without Ange Postecoglou who’s defected to rivals Melbourne Victory.

But new Roar coach Rado Vidosic says despite these recent distractions his players are ready.

Rado Vidosic, Brisbane Roar Coach: “We want to go over there, we want to perform well and hopefully we can get some good results.”

Kick off will be on Wednesday with their final group match against Beijing at Suncorp Stadium on May 16.
