Richmond Tigers vs Brisbane Lions Preview
The marquee clash of the AFL round 10 preview.
Brisbane Lions have risen to ‘AFL contender’ status, and are aiming to parlay this form into a victory that would signal the end of an 11-year hoodoo. The Lions are on a 14-match losing streak against the Tigers, last beating the yellow-and-blacks in 2009.
Each of Richmond’s wins during a decade-plus of domination came by margins of 19 points or more, while seven of the last 11 were by 42 or more. The Tigers demolished the Lions 18.4 (112) to 8.17 (65) in their 2019 qualifying final clash, with Dustin Martin going off for six goals.
But the patchy premiers have won four of their last five and are coming off arguably their best display of 2020, thumping the Bulldogs 13.12 (90) to 7.7 (49) on Wednesday. Martin (26 disposals, 3 goals) was in scintillating touch, while captain Trent Cotchin made a sound return from injury.
It’s a result the Tigers – now fifth on the AFL ladder – can use as a platform for their title defence.
The 7–2 Lions sit second and have won three in a row. After gritty victories over GWS and Melbourne, they flexed their muscle with a 14.7 (91) to 3.10 (28) beat-down of Essendon on Friday. Brownlow favourite Lachie Neale (33 disposals, 2 goals) was sensational once again and Coleman Medal contender Charlie Cameron kicked four goals.
A tight four-day turnaround could turn AFL round 10 tips against the Lions here, with the Tigers benefitting from an extra two days’ rest.
