Fagan beaming after Lions’ famous AFL win

Brisbane coach Chris Fagan believes the painful lessons from AFL finals series gone by have paved the way for the Lions’ stunning September surge.

The Lions are through to a preliminary final against minor premiers Geelong after a famous upset of their bogey team Melbourne on Friday night.

Brisbane turned around their dismal recent form against the Demons, recording a 13-point victory at the MCG – 14.8 (92) to 11.13 (79) – at a venue where they had lost their last 11 matches since 2014.

After entering this year’s finals series with a 1-5 post-season record, blighted by two straight-sets exits under Fagan, the Lions have now triumphed in two straight sudden-death thrillers.

Fagan hailed his team’s resilience for backing up last week’s classic victory over Richmond with another come-from-behind win, arguably the Lions’ finest since their last grand final win in 2003.
