WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Friday, July 6, 7.50pm AEST
There aren’t many clouds in the winter sky above Punt Road, with the Tigers sitting comfortably on top of the ladder after asserting their dominance over Sydney on Thursday night. With five games left at the MCG, where they haven’t lost since round 13 last year, they are in the box seat to be there at the season’s end. Their injury list remains short, although Reece Conca is a loss after his impressive transition to the midfield this season. They’re a more threatening proposition than the Crows faced back in round two, which makes this game an even bigger challenge for Don Pyke’s men. The Crows will go in with confidence after reinvigorating their season with a win over West Coast, but face a tough run to the finals. It’s their last chance to play at the MCG this season and Taylor Walker seems to have found form at the right time.
