- Tigers can’t let Cats dominate scoring
1 of 1
Last time they met
We all remember last year’s unique grand final in Queensland, where the Tigers overcame the Cats in the second half to win their third premiership in four seasons.
But do we remember the round 8 match this season? Richmond led 27-9 at quarter-time and then 49-40 at the main break, before the Cats kicked 13 of 15 second-half goals.
That match was played in front of a crowd of 54,857. It feels like a lifetime ago!
Jeremy Cameron (six goals), Gary Rohan (five) and Tom Hawkins (four) obliterated the Tigers that night.
Tigers can’t let Cats dominate scoring
Geelong recorded a comfortable 63-point win over Richmond when these sides met earlier this season in Round 8 – its third-biggest win for the year. The Cats dominated the score sources, outscoring the Tigers by 16 points from intercept possessions, 22 points from stoppages and 25 points from kick-ins.
No late changes, subs revealed for Cats v Tigers
The medical subs have been announced for today’s bumper contest.
Quinton Narkle, who appears to be on the fringe at the Cats, will sit in the wings, while former Cat and Sun Josh Caddy will be Richmond’s medical sub.
Afternoon everyone, Damien Ractliffe here, we have a couple of massive games today that are certain to shape the look of the top eight.
The Cats, still pushing for top four, meet the Tigers in a grand final rematch at 3.20pm. Richmond sits ninth, highlighting how important this match is just days out from August.
Later this evening, at 6.10pm, the Bombers and Giants do battle. Both sides sit outside the eight but mathematically remain in the finals hunt.
Right now, we’re deep into the last quarter in the Swans v Dockers game. Sydney leads by 29 with about 10 minutes left on the clock, and the defeat to Fremantle opens the door for the Giants to make their move up the table.
