The Crows are one of only three undefeated sides, along with West Coast and Collingwood, after the two-week, three-team format of the competition. Adelaide defeated Carlton by nine points and cross-town rival Port Adelaide by one point at AAMI Stadium on Sunday. Brisbane need to win on Saturday night to have any chance of making the NAB Cup grand final on March 17. The Lions split their two games on Saturday night at Metricon Stadium, defeating Gold Coast Suns by two points before going down to Melbourne by three points. B r i s b a n e c o a c h Michael Voss has criticised the new video review system, calling it clunky and saying it didnt feel right after a referred decision cost his team a goal in his sides loss against the Demons. L i o n P a t r i c k Karnezis appeared to have soccered the ball through for a goal during the second half before the decision was referred upstairs. After a number of replays from different angles, the ball was deemed to have grazed the inside of the post, and a behind was given. Voss said: Regardless of what happened, y o u c o u l d d e b a t e whether it was a behind or not, just the game stopping, I dont like that. Adelaide and Collingwood are poised to meet in an elimination final scenario at AAMI Stadium in round three of the NAB Cup if results go as expected. West Coast are now hot favourites to be the first team to qualify for the NAB Cup grand final because their remaining matches are both in Western Australia. The Eagles play Port Adelaide at Mandurah this weekend before hosting St Kilda at Patersons Stadium in round three. If both the Crows and Magpies win this weekend, they will set up a clash for a grand final berth when they meet in the third round. The top two teams on the NAB Cup ladder after round three will progress to the grand final. Brown ruled out AUSSIE RULES Dale Fletcher Brisbane captain Jonathan Brown tackles Melbournes Matthew Bate on Saturday night Picture: ADAM HEAD JONATHAN Brown came through his first match since fracturing his jaw last July unscathed, but will not be at Traeger Park to tackle Adelaide this Saturday night. The Brisbane Lions captain played most of both NAB Cup matches against Melbourne and Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night and, despite not kicking a goal in the wet, was a solid contributor. However, Lions coach Michael Voss said the skipper would be put on ice while the rest of the team headed west to take on the Crows in round two of the preseason competition. Voss said: No, we wont take him. Well assess the list now. Probably most that played full games well think about whether we take them next week or not. Theres no injuries so now its about being able to manage our list. While Voss was pleased to get through without injury, he saved most praise for his young players on the difficult night. Voss gave raps to Claye Beams, Billy Longer, Ryan Harwood, Josh Green, Elliot Yeo and Jared Polec, saying the Lions depth was quickly improving. He said: I think theres a few Brisbane Lions fans that should be pretty excited by some of the things they saw tonight from some of their younger players. Competitive intent is what youre after. Youre re-engaged with the contest now. I thought our players attack on the footy was first class in a lot of instances.
