Brisbane Lions get the chance to enhance their minor premiership claims against North Melbourne at Metricon Stadium on Saturday. With star man Charlie Cameron passed fit to play for the Lions, this could be a percentage-booster against the undermanned Kangaroos.

North Melbourne Form

North Melbourne slipped to 16th spot on the ladder after going down by 57 points to Melbourne Demons last weekend at Adelaide Oval. The Roos have suffered two heavy losses in a row having also been on the wrong end of a 33-point margin against Geelong Cats.

North did secure a third win of the season in Round 9, but their 69-point victory was over the winless and hapless Adelaide Crows.

Brisbane Lions Form

The Lions bounced back from a loss to Richmond Tigers with a very impressive victory over the Western Bulldogs last week as they recorded a 24-point win.

Second-placed Brisbane will see this as great opportunity to maintain the pressure on ladder leaders Port Adelaide, and a potential percentage booster against the undermanned North Melbourne.
