Game Notes: The Dreamtime clash is always a special occasion to attend, no matter the circumstances. Rain, hail or shine, no matter if it’s a topped up Essendon side or not, people will turn up to this one in their droves. Our Bomber rookies, Dea and McDonald-Tipungwuti have been performing exceptionally well in defence and will be $400k shortly. The latter has overcome significant hurdles to feature in the AFL let alone on the Dreamtime stage, highlighted in this brilliant article in The Age today. Dustin Martin could be an inspired VC/C choice on the back of his impressive form, as the Tigers hope to post a third victory in succession, something that seemed extremely unlikely four weeks ago at 1-6.

The 6 Points

1. The Bombers will need to lift their scoring if they’re to beat the Tigers this week. Essendon is ranked last for points scored this season, averaging only 60 points a game.

2. This week will be the 198th meeting between the two clubs. Essendon has won 104 games to Richmond’s 89, with four draws. Since 2012 it’s five wins to three to the Tigers’ way.

3. The annual Dreamtime at the ‘G was first played in 2006, with the 10 meetings split mostly in Essendon’s favour. The Bombers have won six of the contests, and three of the last four.

4. The Bombers have proved to be a high handballing side this year, ranking second in the competition (averaging 191 a game). The Tigers play in a contrasting style, averaging 159 handballs a game (ranking 15th).

5. Richmond captain Trent Cotchin returned to the Tigers’ line-up last week in brilliant touch, gathering a career-high 39 disposals (including 18 contested possessions). He had missed the previous two weeks with a fractured cheekbone.

6. Zach Merrett’s ascent as a midfielder has been reflected in the Schick Official AFL Player Ratings. The Essendon youngster has jumped to No.122 on the overall list after starting the year ranked 151.

MJ’s Tip: Tigers by 24 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

Game Chat – Essendon v Richmond

Written by Thommo on August 29 2015

Richmond enjoyed a big win over Collingwood last week and are a genuine grand final contender despite missing the top 4 (barring a surprise Sydney loss). With half a game separating fifth and eight, the Tigers will be looking to increase their percentage at the expense of the Bombers and strengthen their hold on fifth place.

The Bombers showed definite improvement in effort last week under Egan’s direction but the Tigers are a far tougher proposition than the undermanned Gold Coast Suns. Can Essendon maintain the rage with nothing on the line or are they looking forward to a hard-earned Summer holiday?

Congratulations to Paul Chapman on his retirement: He will always be remembered as a champion of the game!

Well done also to the vastly improved Tye Vickery who plays his 100th game.

Thommo’s tip: Richmond by 56 points.
