Brisbane Lions licking their wounds on bye weekend

THIS week's bye has come at the perfect time for the injury-ravaged Brisbane Lions who sit in 16th place with a 2-8 record.

Despite a disappointing start to the season, goal-kicking midfielder Allen Christensen (pictured) says the team has shown enough glimpses to suggest there is plenty of light at the end of the tunnel.

"We've given teams that five- or six-goal run-on and we're always going to be battling from there, it doesn't matter who you've got on the park," the former Geelong premiership player said. "Those little moments when we switch off, they're the bits we've got to improve and I think once we get that right we'll be in games for longer.

"I think we're a pretty fit team and we can run over the top of the opposition."

Christensen had a slow start to the season after back surgery, but has improved and is averaging 20 disposals a game.
