West Coast test for Lions

THE Lions will fly to Perth on Friday to take on slumping West Coast at Patersons Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

But after upsetting the Eagles by two points at the Gabba in round 10 - Brisbane's fifth win against West Coast in the past six matches - you can be sure the Lions won't be flying under the radar this time.

Speaking after training yesterday, Lions coach Michael Voss said while West Coast had slipped from first to fifth since the Brisbane loss, they were still a quality outfit.

"They'll want to get back in the winners' list after their loss (to Adelaide on Saturday)," Voss said. "We know what they're capable of and what scoring power they have."

What the coach said he didn't know was whether his star players Simon Black, Tom Rockliff and Josh Drummond would make the trip West.

Rockcliff suffered a compound dislocation of his finger in the 11-point win against the Suns on Saturday, Drummond had to be substituted out in the last quarter after suffering from severe cramps, and Black has been battling a knee injury for several weeks.
