Can Brisbane change everything and qualify for the final after its worst year?
“I have my doubts,” Vautin said.
“It’s pretty hard to reverse what happened last year so quickly,” adding that Brisbane’s fate was probably just short of a place for the final.
“They can only get better, but I think in the top of the last eight.”
