SUMMARY
Last week’s win over Port Adelaide was Greater Western Sydney’s 12th for the year, a new record for the club, and they’ll be keen to repeat the dose against Richmond, a team they’ve never beaten. The Giants sit in second spot on the ladder, one of six teams on 12 wins for the season, so they will be well aware of the importance surrounding this clash in Canberra. The Tigers showed some good signs against Hawthorn last week but fell away badly after half-time, so coach Damien Hardwick will want a strong showing on Saturday afternoon. It’s Richmond’s first visit to the nation’s capital and if the Giants maintain the intensity they showed in the second half against the Power, the Tigers will have a tough flight home.

The 6 Points

1. When these two sides last played the Giants led by five points at half-time and 15 at three-quarter time, before the Tigers overran them. Trent Cotchin was the difference with 33 disposals, two goals and seven tackles.

2. No team has kicked the football more this season than GWS, who are averaging 222.2 per game; the Tigers are sixth at 207.1 per game.

3. The Giants and the Tigers have met five times and Richmond has won all of them, with two of the victories coming by more than 100 points.

4. GWS is the number one clearance side after 17 games averaging 41 per game, while Richmond has struggled in this area, ranked 11th at 36.2 per game.

5. The Giants have overtaken Adelaide as the highest scoring side in 2016, kicking 109 points per game; the Tigers are a long way back with 84 points per game.

6. Richmond midfielder Dustin Martin has continued his rise up the Official Player Ratings, he’s now ranked 26th after being 54th in the competition after round five.

  1. It’s actually turned out to be a decent day weather-wise. Hopefully the Tigers can put on a good show for the crowd at Marrrrrrrnaka

  2. Houli playing defensive forward role on Zac Williams which may affect both of their scores.

    PS, How good was Toby Greene’s goal there! Great arc in his kick. Emergency loopholed young Toby, but hope he kicks 4, with 20 possies, +4 Free’s and non against!

    1. 2nd goal for Greene.

      Alex Rance just got a poke in the eye. Currently off the field, but hopefully he’ll be back soon enough.

  5. I have two Richmond players – Rance and Dusty. At least they’re putting in an effort. And big shout out to Congilio on his debut for my side. Brilliant stuff!!

    1. Unless he’s just won a second premiership.

      And no, minor premiers doesn’t mean winning 9th place, Dimma.

      Not like supercoach.
