The Tigers have won eight of their last nine matches but surely the best of these wins was the round 10 defeat of the previously unbeaten Dockers at Subiaco. Having beaten Fremantle on their home patch, Richmond will be favoured to win at the MCG but strangely enough the Tigers haven’t appeared as convincing playing at home as they have on the road. Still, with Ballantyne out for most of the season and Pavlich sure to struggle with Rance’s defensive prowess, Fremantle will have to recapture their early season form to win this one.
But as we all know, never rule out a team coached by Ross Lyon.
Milestones: Congratulations to Troy Chaplin who has quietly crept his way to 200 games.
Thommo’s tip: Richmond by 3 goals.
