Richmond Tigers vs Geelong Cats Preview

A monster game between fifth and sixth kicks off the round on Friday night as the Tigers and Geelong meet in a rematch of last year’s Grand Final.

No Dusty proved no problem last week for the Tigers in their 22-point come-from-behind win over the Bulldogs, while things didn’t quite go to plan for the Cats in a controversial loss to the Swans in Sydney.

Richmond has held Geelong’s number recently winning four of their last five meetings, the most important of which came last time out at the Gabba.

The Tigers and Cats jostled for the better part of four quarters in the Grand Final, only for Richmond to draw clear in the final term thanks to the class of Dustin Martin.

Geelong will be eager to get some revenge on their rivals, but they will have to deal with the might of Dusty again in his return from a concussion.

The Tigers will be without Trent Cotchin and Dylan Grimes, but this still shapes as a winnable game for Richmond with Geelong missing Patrick Dangerfield and Shaun Higgins.

It wouldn’t be surprising if less than a goal separates these two sides, but the Tigers still get the benefit of the doubt after winning four of their last five against the Cats.

Richmond’s pressure last week in the second half was impressive after trailing the Dogs by a big margin, and if they can pick up where they left off, they should be tough to beat.
