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
