Aussie Rules: Fagan quickly turns to Cats clash

Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan says his players will not celebrate the 108-win over North Melbourne too much as they need to regain focus for a huge game against Geelong.

The Lions are out to win the AFL grand final and can take plenty of heart from the way they demolished the Kangaroos at the Gabba.

Geelong test

Brisbane romped to a 23.18 (156) to 7.6 (48) win and although it needs to be celebrated, it will not be for long as all eyes turn to a big game in Geelong.

The Lions have suffered 12 defeats on the bounce at GMHBA Stadium and Fagan is keen to address such a shocking record.

"You can't get carried away because we are fronting against Geelong next week and they're damn good," Fagan said. "We've got to make sure that we don't celebrate and carry on too much about it.

"We've just got to be fairly pragmatic and six days to recover, tough road trip - doesn't get any tougher - so good for us we haven't got too long to bask in glory, I suppose."

Areas to improve on

Despite Saturday’s rout against North Melbourne, Fagan says there are still plenty of areas for his side to improve on ahead of the Cats test.

"That's a critical area against Geelong so we've got to be better in that department for sure," Fagan added. "Obviously when you play them at their ground, the stats say they're very hard to beat down there. We're going to have to play really well.

"We're up for it but we're going to have to play well. It's a vastly different task to the one we had (on Saturday)."
