Official Crowd: 33,077 at Gabba.

Lions kingpin Jonathan Brown kicked a monster goal just seconds before the fulltime siren to snatch a dramatic draw with Sydney in a Gabba thriller tonight.

Brown let roost a 55m set shot with the last disposal of the rugged affair which sailed truly to give the Brisbane co-captain his fourth major and tie the scores 9.9 (63) to 8.15 (63).

It brought the crowd of 33,077 - the biggest in Brisbane this season - to their collective feet after it appeared Swans skipper Brett Kirk had stolen the match for the visitors.

After watching the first five minutes, I honestly thought that my team would lose the game, but they fought hard. Exciting yet frustrating to watch.
