Geelong Cats vs Richmond Tigers Preview
The top four is set for a shake-up as the Cats and the Tigers get together under the Friday night lights at Metricon.
Geelong are arguably the team to beat now with with six straight wins to their name, while the Tigers seem to be doing just enough to get by.
Richmond definitely need to shift things up a gear this week after a less-than convincing performance last Wednesday against Fremantle.
Fortunately for the Tigers, they have rest to their advantage here with Geelong playing on only a four day break.
The Tigers will also feel pretty good about themselves knowing they won by 19-points over Geelong in last year’s Preliminary Final.
On the flip side however, goals have proven hard to come by at times for Richmond, which spells potential disaster against a Geelong outfit that has allowed the fewest in the competition.
The Cats are the rightful favourites in this spot and they can make a real statement with another win over a top four side, much like they did against the Lions earlier in the year.
Geelong has been the best side to back at the line this season covering in 10 of their 15 games.
With a few off-field distractions also working against Richmond, back the Cats to get the job done.
