Captain Patrick Dangerfield headlines four changes to Geelong’s Round 6 side that will play Brisbane at the Gabba on Saturday night.

Dangerfield will play his first game since Round 2. While Tom Hawkins and Jake Kolodjashnij return after being managed last week.

Young ruck Toby Conway gets another opportunity in the senior side after an influential display in the VFL last round where he was named in the best.

They replace Zach Tuohy and Rhys Stanley who are being managed. Shannon Neale and last week’s debutant Connor O’Sullivan also make way.

Neale, O’Sullivan and Stanley are the emergencies.

Saturday’s contest against Brisbane is set to be a blockbuster encounter with the Lions entering the contest on a two-game winning streak following victories against North Melbourne and most recently Melbourne.

Geelong enters the contest following five consecutive victories, the most recent a 75-point victory against North Melbourne in Round 5 at GMHBA Stadium.

The last time the two sides met was in Round 19, 2023, where the Lions emerged victors by 11 points.

The first bounce will be at 7.30pm and the game will be broadcast on Channel 7 and Kayo.
