WHERE AND WHEN: The MCG, Sunday, April 8, 1.10pm AEST
SUMMARY: The Tigers suffered their first loss since round 21 last year when they fell to Adelaide by 36 points on Thursday night, while the Hawks are riding high as one of four undefeated teams after two rounds. The premiers will need to rediscover their contested ball mojo after being smashed in that area by Adelaide, as well as curtailing in-form Tom Mitchell and the finally fit and sublimely talented Jaeger O’Meara. The Hawks, who have shown they’re on their way back to their devastating best, will have their own challenges with Dustin Martin in sharp, goal-kicking form, while captain Trent Cotchin will be hungry for a big game after a subdued 17-disposal performance in his 200th game following a week during which he was treated in hospital for a migraine. They’ll also want to ensure they don’t suffer a third final-quarter fade-out.

Father Dougal’s Tip: Ignore my tips! But Richmond squeaks out a win Tigers by 6
