Richmond Tigers host North Melbourne at Metricon Stadium on Saturday in a game that shapes as a do-or-die contest for both teams.

Richmond have found a little bit of form, finally stringing together two wins in a row in what has been a below par season thus far for them. But the win against Sydney Swans has them inside the top-eight.

The Kangaroos have been one of the major disappointments of the 2020 AFL season. After winning their opening two matches, the Roos haven't registered a single premiership point since.

Can the Roos bounce back into finals contention or will the Tigers add to North's woes?

Richmond Tigers Form & Team News

Richmond have won their last two matches in strong enough fashion, winning against Melbourne Demons and Sydney Swans.

It is a little difficult to get a grip of where they are at this season, but it does look like they are slowly but surely finding their feet and their right side structure.

The team does have a long list of outs, but defender David Astbury is a chance of coming back into the side.

North Melbourne Form & Team News

The Kangaroos need to turn their season around fast if they are to be a finals contender in 2020.

The Roos have lost their last four matches after a strong start to the season, which is disappointing for a team that would have harboured ambitions of playing finals footy this season.

The Roos will be sweating on the fitness of on-ball pair Jack Ziebell and Ben Cunnington, who both missed last week's game against Essendon through injury.

Richmond Tigers vs North Melbourne Match Up

The key match up between these two sides is Tom Lynch and Robbie Tarrant, with arguably the best forward in the league facing off against one of the most dependable defenders in the AFL.

Lynch overcame hand surgery to line up for the Tigers against the Swans last week, but could only manage a single goal and five total touches. While conditions weren't conducive for his style of play, the Coleman Medal fancy will be looking to make more of an impact on Saturday.

Tarrant is a hard defender, and a smart ball user. If he can lock down Lynch, don't anticipate a high scoring affair.
