SUNDAY JUNE 12 2016 SPORT 59 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA cones. Fremantle kicked nine goals to one after quarter-time to emphatically blow a terrible Brisbane off the Gabba to seal the result by halftime and leave Leppitsch with 12 wins from 56 outings as senior coach. Lions supporters started leaving midway through the third quarter, about two quarters after the players checked out of the contest. In the absence of Matthew Pavlich, Matt Taberner stood tall with five goals for the Dockers while Chris Mayne, Hayden Ballantyne and Lachie Weller adding four majors each. Michael Barlow continued his rich vein of form with 23 disposals and a shutdown job on Daniel Rich for the Dockers who had good players all over the ground. Not that they beat much. Josh Schache kicked two goals for Brisbane who were best served by Pearce Hanley, BRISBANES horror year slumped from bad to worse to leave Justin Leppitschs coaching tenure on a knifes edge after Fremantle smashed the listless and lacklustre Lions by 83 points at the Gabba last night. Leppitsch talked up the little wins from the past few weeks at his pre-match press conference on Friday but there was no sugar-coating the pathetic effort from the home side that his put his head squarely on the chopping block. An insipid display from midway through the first term from the Lions giftwrapped the premiership points for the Dockers who claimed their second win of 2016. Brisbane players did not look like they were playing for Leppitsch, the jumper, themselves or their teammates as a fellow cellar-dweller made the Lions look like glorified traffic Toothless Lions cop trouncing GREG DAVIS BRISBANE V FREMANTLE 64LIONS3.3 4.6 7.6 9.10 147DOCKERS3.3 12.3 18.7 23.9 GOALS Brisbane: M Taberner 5 C Mayne 4 H Ballantyne 4 L Weller 4 D Tucker 2 M Walters N Suban T Sheridan T Smith Fremantle: J Schache 2 L Taylor 2 T Cutler 2 D Rich R Bastinac R Bewick BEST Brisbane: P Hanley, M Robinson, T Cutler, T Rockliff, J Schache, D McStay Fremantle: M Taberner, M Barlow, L Weller, C Mayne, C Blakely, T Sheridan, S Hill Dees name Viney for Pies clash MELBOURNE young gun Jack Viney will make a stunningly swift return to football tomorrow after being named in the Demons final team to face Collingwood just a fortnight after suffering a broken knuckle. The 22-year-old suffered the injury against Port Adelaide in Round 10. He had surgery and was forced to prove his fitness in a training session at Goschs Paddock yesterday morning. While the midfielder, who trained with a glove on his injured left hand and had the index and middle fingers taped together, appeared hesitant at times, he spread his time between the main and rehabilitation groups before engaging in match simulation in the second half of the session before some stoppage work with skipper Nathan Jones and ruckman Max Gawn. Gawn joked that he was surprised the star missed even one game last weeks loss to Hawthorn. Im surprised he missed last week hes usually pretty quick to get over his injuries, he said yesterday. Ben Kennedy has also been named after missing last weeks match.

Brisbane led 18-1 after the opening exchanges with direct and skilful football resulting in goals to Josh Schache, Rich and Lewis Taylor.
