Richmond Tigers vs Hawthorn Hawks Preview

Round 3 kicks off with the Tigers hosting the Hawks in a clash of MCG co-tenants and just about any outcome will be better than what was dished up at the same venue last Thursday night.

Richmond will be fine, but clearly they hadn’t got used to being back in the office after lockdown conceding four goals in the first quarter and not kicking one themselves.

The Tigers played catch up all night, the dewy and slippery conditions of the MCG were there for all to see and the overall performance was a bit rusty resulting in a draw and the lowest scoring AFL game since 1999.

On a positive note, Richmond can now lay claim to having been undefeated for an entire calendar year even if that includes a 81-day global pandemic enforced bye and a draw.

Being reigning premiers also helps that.

Despite believing in last week’s preview that the Hawks beating Geelong in Geelong would be another Clarkson masterstroke, it wasn’t to be.

Hawthorn was on the back foot all night and despite only being six-points down at half-time they went down by 10 goals against the rampaging Cats.

Shaun Burgoyne should consider himself lucky he’s playing this weekend after that sling tackle on Patrick Dangerfield only resulted in a fine from the match review officer.

You would think that a team like Richmond will be able to shake off the cobwebs of last week, get their heads into gear and get back to their dominant winning ways come Thursday night.

There are $2 lines on offer this week is an as good value bet you can get around.
