10th vs. 15th
In a genuine dead-rubber we have some pretty good aspects to this game to make it a pretty interesting clash. (more…)

Carlton – 23.18 (156)
Richmond – 10.7 (67)
Carlton has cemented its spot in the top 8 with an emphatic victory over a disappointing Richmond side. The first term saw the Blues lead by just 11 points but had 6 more scoring shots than the Tigers. From that point on it was the Blues who dominated kicking seven goals to nil in the second quarter to set up the win. (more…)
Richmond – 15.10 (100)
Adelaide – 11.14 (80)
Richmond has killed Adelaide’s hopes of sneaking into finals with a 20 point win at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.
In slippery and windy conditions the first quarter was pretty even, with many turnovers occurring due to the weather conditions. In the second quarter the play was dominated by the Crows, however they were pretty inaccurate in front of goal kicking 4 goals and 9 behinds. (more…)

15th vs. 10th
This match should be one of the games of the round on paper, both Richmond and Adelaide have had a poor start to the season but have jumped back on their feet over the past 5-6 weeks.
This match is more important to the Crows as a win will put them within reach of finals, however it will not secure them a spot. For the Tigers a win will put them another game clear of the Eagles in 16th spot on the ladder and put pressure on them to perform if they want to avoid it. (more…)
Collingwood – 19.13 (127)
Richmond – 6.9 (45)
The Collingwood Football Club has consolidated their position at the top of the AFL ladder after 17 rounds by a convincing 82 point win of Richmond at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.
The Pies dominated the match all afternoon and kicked the first 5 goals of the match to lead by 23 points at the first break. They then opened up the second quarter by kicking the first 5 goals once to put the game beyond doubt of the flat Tigers ever catching up.
Richmond – 7.11 (53)
North Melbourne – 15.13 (103)
North Melbourne have simultaneously kept their finals chances alive and sent the Tigers a huge reality check as to where they are at as a club with a comfortable 50 point victory in trying conditions. The main reason for the result was North’s superior appetite for the contest but they also demonstrated that extra bit of polish that separates a finals contender from a team rebuilding like the Tigers are.

Brisbane – 12.14 (86)
Richmond – 15.15 (105)
Richmond has notched up its third win of the 2010 season against a disappointing Brisbane at the Gabba. In Brendan Fevola’s 200th the Lions looked in trouble early with Richmond looking the better of the two sides. (more…)

12th vs. 16th
It is once again time for the Dreamtime at the G match on Saturday night. As per usual Essendon and Richmond will face off in celebration of Indigenous talent, and as per usual it should be a good match.
Richmond are desperate for their first win, and what better stage to get it than here. Essendon are coming off an upset win against the Saints last week and will be looking for their first back to back wins of the year to keep their season faintly alive.
It was against the Bomber last season that the Tigers notched up just its fourth win of the year in round 17 and Essendon went on to scrape into finals, so you can expect anything from this match. (more…)
