Naughton takes a huge pack mark deep in attack and his set shot from close range is easily converted. That was a great piece of play from the young gun in his return game from injury.

HIGH FIVE FOR HIPWOOD!
Hipwood’s season-best night gets better as he wins the free kick for being held by Gardner before converting the set shot from 40m out on a slight angle.
That’s five big ones for Hipwood and we still have a quarter to go!
Richards, Dunkley and Macrae combine to get it to Daniel who spears the pass into Dale’s chest.
From 40m out on an acute angle, Dale’s set shot is lovely.
BACK-TO-BACK BRISBANE GOALS
