SUMMARY

An inconsistent Power side kick off the first of three-straight prime-time home games with a clash against the reigning premiers. The eighth-placed Power (6-4) have shown glimpses of what many thought they were capable of after an off-season signing spree, but have also been guilty of basic skill errors that have cost them games. Superstar Robbie Gray needs more support from Charlie Dixon, Jack Watts and Chad Wingard in attack. The forwards will also need to keep a tight hold on Tigers’ defensive lynchpin Alex Rance to prevent him from taking easy intercept marks. The Tigers, second on the ladder with a 9-2 record, are absolutely flying. Brownlow Medallist Dustin Martin – who is sidelined with a calf injury – collected the three votes the last time he faced the Power, while Josh Caddy and Shane Edwards are in great form. It’s a great test for the Power to see where they sit against the premiership favourites.

Thommo’s Tip: Richmond by 25 points

  3. Ended up going Westhoff over Gray
    Robbie Gray…2 handballs and one tackle for 20 points (DT 8 points)
    Westhoff…9 kicks, 2 handballs, 1 tackle, 1 goal, 1 behind, 2 frees for (3 clangers and 27% disposal eff is killing him) for 37 points
    Pretty happy so far, but what could have been from Westy that quarter

    1. Gray…1 kick, 5 handballs, 1 tackle @66% – 46 points
      Westhoff…13 kicks, 6 handballs, 1 tackle, 1 contested mark, 3 goals @37% – 67 points
      Gray scoring extremely well for his possession count

      1. Grays playing about as well as you can without getting possessions, if that makes sense! Quite frustrating to see the best midfielder on the ground spending all his time in the forward pocket

  5. No Dusty, no Richmond? 😛

    I’m actually surprised how much the tigers get away with shoveling a ball out to a team mate in a tackle.

      1. That’s a terrible comment look at last week. Then against collingwood and melbourne. There pressure is elite just couldn’t capitalize

        1. Not saying they’re not a good side, but in previous seasons, in you came up against the Hawks, Cats or Swans you were pretty much screwed. But reckon there’s ten other teams that would fancy their chances against the Tigers. They just don’t have that fear factor.

          Fair point about Dogs.
