Game notes: The game’s two best key defenders – Robbie Tarrant and Alex Rance – will have crucial roles at either end as the Kangaroos and Tigers lock horns in a season-defining clash for each team. Richmond shook its late-match woes against Essendon on Saturday night to snap a four-match losing slide. But the Tigers will also need to end their North Melbourne hoodoo, which includes seven losses in eight outings, to continue their top-four push. The Roos’ ability to at least break even with Richmond through the midfield will be critical to their chances. Dustin Martin – a North recruiting target – Trent Cotchin and Brandon Ellis were pivotal in the victory over the Bombers. Ben Cunnington had a big last quarter to will North across the line against Carlton, but was otherwise quiet. Whichever Cunnington turns up, Shaun Higgins and captain Jack Ziebell will need to maintain their good form.
