Game notes:

The opportunity to play again can’t come soon enough for Richmond after it’s 10 minute fourth-quarter meltdown against Collingwood. Damien Hardwick’s men have been disappointing in the opening two rounds and far from convincing as a top-four hopeful. Those credentials will be further tested against a form team in Adelaide, which boasts a fearsome forward line. The Crows’ organisation under new coach Don Pyke contrasts with the Tigers lack of a plan late in last Friday’s shocker. Still, both sides are 1-1 and it would not be beyond the Tigers to flip their form on its head.

Mottsy’s Tip: Richmond by 10 points.
