Richmond Tigers vs Greater Western Sydney Giants Preview

No Bolton, no Cotchin, no Edwards, no Lambert, no Prestia. There’s a gaping hole in the Tigers midfield and with a limited supply of ball going forward The Wolf can’t see Richmond being able to reverse their scoring woes.

The Tigers are ranked 10th in the competition for points this season averaging 81.8 per game but the last three weeks is a massive concern averaging just 62.7 – the only team worse off being the Crows. They face a Giants team that they’ve played in some low-scoring contests against in recent times with eight of the last 11 between these two teams going unders.

Richmond’s points average is inflated this season with 100+ scores against the Blues and Saints but both of those sides are ranked in the bottom six in the competition for points conceded. From the six other games Richmond has played this season, they’ve failed to score 80+ points.

The Giants are a decent defensive unit – they’re ranked eighth in the competition for points against this season and will certainly take advantage of a depleted Richmond midfield through the likes of Taranto, Hopper, Kelly and Ward.

Richmond has won just two of their last five at Marvel, averaging 83.6 points – this includes scoring 134 points against the Saints in Round 5. With their points line currently set at 86.5, it’s hard to see them clearing this line.
