30 May, 2024

In the latest episode of the Footy Frontline Podcast, hosts Nick D’urbano and AAP journalist Oliver Caffrey dissect the critical moments from Round 11 and provide an in-depth preview of Round 12 in the AFL.

Brisbane's Struggles

Brisbane Lions’ shocking 10-point loss to Hawthorn at Marvel Stadium has raised serious questions about their ability to make the finals this season. Despite promising performances in previous weeks, the Lions faltered against a team that has consistently troubled them. Key players like Charlie Cameron struggled, and with injuries mounting, Brisbane’s path to the finals looks increasingly challenging. Chris Fagan’s comments post-match highlight the urgency for the Lions to turn their season around after their upcoming bye.

Geelong's Woes Continue

Geelong’s loss to GWS marks their fourth consecutive defeat, an unprecedented slump in Chris Scott’s 14-year tenure. Despite a dominant start to the season, the Cats are now fighting to stay in finals contention. The absence of Patrick Dangerfield is keenly felt, with the team struggling to convert opportunities in key moments. The upcoming clash against Richmond is seen as a must-win to regain form and confidence.
