Earlier this year
Perth @ Brisbane 9/1/17
As a Perth fan, I would've been happy to take a 1-1 split from this road-trip before the weekend started. Of course, having now won the first, it would be a massive boon if we were able to grab both.
Brisbane are a strange team and can lure teams into an "ugly-fest". So despite them looking like they have less talent, I am worried about this game. The Cats have had some stinkers on the road offensively in recent years, and this has the makings of a potential banana peel, or will Cotton's excellence help to overcome the old Perth trait of struggling on the road?
I understand Damian Martin will not play this one, in order to gradually increase his load after that injury.
