Richmond Tigers and Gold Coast Suns conclude the action for AFL Round 12 on Monday when they go head to head at the Gabba. The Tigers were beaten by Port Adelaide last weekend, while the Suns come into this one on the back of a thrilling draw with Essendon Bombers.

Richmond Tigers Form


The Tigers are in need of a win to boost their top four aspirations following a 21-point defeat at ladder leaders Port Adelaide last weekend. That left Richmond with a 6-4-1 record for the season and sitting six points adrift of the top four heading into this game.

It has been a mixed bag of form for the Tigers all season, but one thing they have done well is react to defeats. Will Monday's clash with the Suns follow the same trend?

Gold Coast Suns Form


Gold Coast Suns suffered a blow to their final hopes after heartbreaking draw with Essendon Bombers on Wednesday. Ben King levelled the scoress with two minutes remaining and team-mate Izak Rankine had the chance to win it after the siren. But he blew his chance to be a hero, dragging his set shot from 50m wide.

It is now four games without a win for the Suns, who are bidding to make the finals for the first time. Before the draw with the Dons, their positive start to the season had been undone following successive defeats to the Western Bulldogs, GWS Giants and St Kilda.
