Richmond Tigers vs West Coast Eagles Preview

West Coast’s six-game run at Optus Stadium has finally come to an end as they now travel back over to Queensland to face the Tigers at Metricon on Thursday night.

To call this battle between fourth and fifth a blockbuster would be an understatement, particularly with the jury still out on West Coast’s premiership credentials following such a long stretch of games in Perth.

We should receive a firm answer this week as to who the Eagles truly are, but as the market suggests, it is hard to find confidence in West Coast based on the troubles they had in the Sunshine State to start the season.

To refresh your memory, Adam Simpson’s side lost three consecutive games to the Suns, Lions and Power between Rounds 2 and 5.

The Eagles bounced back with a couple of handy wins over the lowly Swans and Crows before returning home, a form line that doesn’t exactly read well with a game against the reigning premiers ahead.

Richmond, on the other hand, have now won back-to-back games after surviving a couple of scares against the Suns and Bombers in successive weeks.

The Tigers won by only a goal when these two sides last met, but unlike West Coast, Richmond’s record in Queensland speaks for itself.

Damien Hardwick’s side is a perfect 5-0 up north this year and they should feel pretty good about themselves knowing Bachar Houli is back in the side alongside Tom Lynch, who was lucky to avoid suspension.

It would be surprising if this game isn’t close, but with some good value straight-up, you have to like the Tigers to win outright.
