Game notes: How Richmond responds to a shock 67-point loss to St Kilda will determine whether the result was an aberration or the start of a worrying run of form. The Tigers fell 82 points behind in the opening half and let worrying trends creep into their game, with their pressure and structure, that coach Damien Hardwick will want to eradicate in Sunday’s clash against the Brisbane Lions. Chris Fagan’s team, meanwhile, suffered its biggest loss of the season just six days after its best win under the new coach. The young team was bullied by Geelong, but Dayne Zorko put in one of the performances of the season with 36 possessions and four goals. Whether he can be more effective than Dustin Martin will be one the key elements of this game.
Hutta’s Tip: Richmond by 25 points.
