Game Chat – Richmond v Hawthorn

Written by Father Dougal on April 8 2018

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.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES:

R20, 2017, Richmond 13.15 (93) d Hawthorn 9.10 (64) at the MCG
R18, 2016, Hawthorn 16.18 (114) d Richmond 5.14 (44) at the MCG
R7, 2016, Hawthorn 21.10 (136) d Richmond 13.12 (90) at the MCG
R18, 2015, Richmond 10.11 (71) d Hawthorn 7.11 (53) at the MCG
R6, 2014, Hawthorn 18.10 (118) d Richmond 7.10 (52) at the MCG

 

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

  2. Mitchell with 11 touches already.

    I’m not sure using a 20 yo kid with a handful of games under his belt as a tagger is the answer here!

      1. If you don’t take 160, you’re not playing the game right.

        The only time you roll that dice is finals and you are going to get knocked out if you don’t take a chance.

    1. Mitchell on track to reel in Fyfe for Captain Score of the week.

      96 with 2 minutes to go till half time.

      I would n’t count out Danger of topping them both.

      Go the Cats!

    2. Yet somehow Sydney couldn’t fit him in their midfield.
      Hawthorn probably feel a bit better about letting Kennedy go now.

  4. Hawks look a bit tired & sore after the big Easter Monday clash , hot & windy wouldn’t help the cause either , would think the Tigers would break away by 1/2 time & win comfortably , no injuries probably the order of the day for both clubs in this one ..
