WHERE AND WHEN: Spotless Stadium, Saturday, July 14, 7.20pm AEST
The Giants’ disappointing loss to West Coast snapped a four-game winning streak and saw them drop the four places they climbed last week, sending them back to 10th on the ladder. They now welcome the rampaging Tigers to Spotless Stadium on Saturday night, with the premiers a game and percentage clear in top spot. Richmond’s only three losses this season have come on the road, giving the home side some hope, but its form has been exceptional over the past three weeks. The Giants kicked themselves out of the contest against the Eagles while their onballers were also well beaten, so the likes of Stephen Coniglio, Callan Ward, Josh Kelly and Dylan Shiel will be keen to take a big scalp in the Tigers, who are ranked 17th for clearances this season. With Kane Lambert, Dustin Martin, Trent Cotchin and Shane Edwards all in brilliant touch, the midfield battle will be one to watch.
