Geelong vs Richmond Preview


The Cats dominated the Dockers to remain within touching distance of the top of the ladder.

Chris Scott’s side frustrated the Dockers ball movement and in turn, restricted them to their seventh lowest ever score. The experience of the midfield lead to dominance and could prove pivotal on Sunday afternoon.

A similarity to their large triumph from last week and the 63-point win against the Tigers earlier in the season was their off the ball movement in the forward half. They were damaging by foot taking 20+ marks inside 50 in both games.

Meanwhile, the Tigers claimed a stirring victory over the Lions to keep their finals hopes alive.

Richmond came to play in Jack Riewoldt’s 300th game, with glimmers showcasing the brilliant Tiger football of previous years. The hunger and ferociousness Damien Hardwick’s was clear to see, and they won’t go down without a fight on Sunday.

Their quest to play finals football this season just get so much harder, with former Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin lacerating his kidney in a clash with Mitch Robinson.

Geelong has been a genuine premiership contender and showcased why against Fremantle and should claim the four points.
