Where and when: Docklands Stadium, 7:20pm (AEST)
Last time they met: SF 2020: Richmond 12.8 (80) DEF St Kilda 6.13 (49) at Metricon.
What looked like being a comfortable night for Richmond after a five-goal opening quarter blitz was anything but, as St Kilda fought until the death. But the inaccuracy around goal that plagued the Saints the previous three seasons came back to bite them. After succumbing to a hungry Brisbane outfit seven days earlier, Richmond got back to doing what it does best – pressuring, playing quickly and converting accurately around goal. Dustin Martin (25 disposals, six clearances and a goal), Shai Bolton (three goals from 11 touches) and Shane Edwards (21 and two goals) were all instrumental in the win.
Match Preview: Boy is Richmond under any pressure to perform this week after 2 straight losses? The Saints were in the same boat last week and released the pressure valve with a 20 point win over the visiting Eagles. They’ll be bracing themselves for the Tiges to come out breathing fire.
