Jack Riewoldt soars for a mark against Brisbane in their last meeting at the MCG in 2018

Jack Riewoldt soars for a mark against Brisbane in their last meeting at the MCG in 2018

What it means for Richmond:
It's now or never for the Tigers in their quest for a top-four spot. Win and they get the second chance, lose and they'll be hoping for Essendon to overcome Collingwood to ensure Richmond's double chance.

What it means for Brisbane: Incredibly, the Lions are one game clear in first, with the minor premiership on the line. A disaster loss and other results could see Brisbane slide to fourth.

The stat: Richmond has won 12 games straight against Brisbane, dating back to round 13, 2010. The last time these two sides met, the Lions didn't kick a goal until late in the third quarter.

The match-up: Harris Andrews vs Tom Lynch

Andrews (33rd in the AFL Player Ratings) traditionally took Lynch (272nd) when the pair met in QClashes, and looks set to meet the Tiger forward – who's third in the Coleman Medal race – once again.

It's a big week for: Dustin Martin

The Brownlow Medal-winning Dusty of 2017 is back at his scintillating best, coming off a 35-disposal game where his influence was obvious. With the Tigers pushing for a top-four spot, they'll need Martin to back up again.



Big call: Jack Riewoldt will be the key for the Tigers once again, kicking the winning goal for the second week running.

Prediction: Tigers by five points

Thinking Richmond at the G may be too much and we lose by a few goals. But even then it will be invaluable finals like experience at the G. We then have a week off and prepare for our first finals game at the other G

Can’t wait.

Lions may surprise the non-believers. Their win against the Cats was better than most people say, most saying it fell nicely into place for them in the last 10 minutes. Scott himself in his embarrassingly churlish way thinks Cats won the game if not the score. In fact lions won the 4 points and the game, their strategy in denying Cats free flow all game was ugly and beautiful like a pet lizard. Scott being such a pathetic child-like pantomime of a grown man can't see it, couldn't see it, and won't see it. What a surly draped orifice he is.

Lions were delighted with their win, their strategy and grit paid off with some nice razzle dazzle at the end. They are well coached and will have plans for the Tiges this week. They believe a bit more in themselves after spaying the Cats.

Tiges are a bit similar, the Eagles win was their best since the 2017 GF, and they too know, with new personnel, 3 of their best players missing last week, and new and effective game plans that can be switched on / off during a game, that they are on a good thing.

If conditions are dry, Lions will get home with their dare and energy, and throw the finals into a fervour, with new believers being converted all over the place.
