Match Preview: Tonight’s match should help to judge where these two teams are at. The Bombers have looked amazing at times this season with their pressure and foot speed running rings around other teams. Their young players could be anything and things are finally looking up after a poor few years. However, as is expected with young teams, the Bombers can leak goals at times and they have lost a few disappointing games.
Similarly, the Tigers have looked very poor at times in 2o21 but that is understandable given their multiple key injuries. While they are off the pace right now, they are within striking distance of the top 8 and have recovered some important players. That said, Richmond need to start winning matches like this or their dream of a three-peat will soon be over.
