Melbourne Demons vs Richmond Tigers Preview

Much like a thriving hospitality establishment pre-COVID19 restrictions, reigning premiers Richmond have really struggled to get back in business since the season resumed.

A draw and two losses, Richmond have gone from being undefeated for an entire calendar year to not having won a game in 100 days – and it’s only Round 4.

The Tigers were meant to play the Eagles on the Gold Coast but as we all know, that’s now been swapped and they will face the Dees at the MCG.

Melbourne had their chances against the Cats in an absolutely atrocious game of football, falling short by three points.

If the Tigers struggle to get back into form against the Dees on the G then 2020 isn’t for them.

There’s no way we are writing off the reigning premiers and they should be able to get back on the winner’s list this Sunday afternoon.
