Two wins in a row! The game was unpleasant to watch at the start, characteristic of Adelaide's zone defence game plan, which often results in low scores. From the second quarter onwards, Brisbane Lions picked up the pace. There were some magnificent passages of play from the boys. Mitch Clark was superb up forward, as was Daniel Merrett in defence.
