QLD Teams Begin NAB Cup Campaign

The Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns begin their NAB Cup campaigns at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night where they have been pooled with Melbourne. Lions skipper Jonathan Brown returns from a horrific facial fracture to lead his side into battle but Brisbane will be without injured key defender Daniel Merrett. In an interesting sub-plot to the Lions  game against Melbourne , Demons recruit Mitch Clark will face his old teammates.

The Gold Coast Suns will be led by Gary Ablett, but will also feature 17 year-old Jaeger O’Meara, who is cannot play in the AFL until next year. The opening match of the night will see the Gold Coast  take on Melbourne , before the Suns  finish the night with a match against derby rivals Brisbane .
