Game notes: There’s been carnage at the Cattery over the past week, the type that’s created ripples that could ascend into waves as the team’s charge to September hits multiple speed-bumps. They’ve lost Joel Selwood to an ankle injury that will at the very least cost him the remaining three games; the captain hopes he’ll replicate the 2016 feats of Tom Liberatore and recover from surgery in time for finals, but he’s up against it. Tom Hawkins and Mitch Duncan are out suspended after undisciplined acts in the loss to the Sydney Swans – Hawkins for this match and the next – but Patrick Dangerfield will return in one positive for the team. The Tigers are flying, having won six of their last seven games, and are third on the ladder. Their defence is ranked No.1 in the competition, and they look set to finish at least in the top four – and possibly in the top two – with Jack Riewoldt hoping to return from a sickening eye injury after two games out.
Thommo’s Tip: Richmond by 18 points.
