It was all pretty smooth sailing for the Victory from the outset thanks to their red-hot winger-cum-striker Kosta Barbarouses. 

The Kiwi sailed the Big V into a 2-0 lead at half-time with a clinical cross-goal rolling finish to open proceedings and then a bullet near-post half volley minutes later.

Brisbane tried to restore some pride and start a fightback through Eric Bautheac, the Frenchman's lob a thing of beauty in its own right, but Victory were simply too good, and could have had three or four.


Kosta Barbarouses (although there was a shocker in there huh)

A rampant first half from the Kiwi that saw two goals (including a beautiful half-volley on the angle) but could have seen three or four just about ended the contest then and there.

He was again at the heart of everything in the second but fluffed his lines entirely when through on goal, attempting to round the keeper and cap off an astounding move but instead, booting the ball to his Roar marker.

Still one of his best in a very good season - he just loves playing against Brisbane.
