  • Richmond Tigers have lost 6 of their last 7 matches.
  • Richmond Tigers have lost their last 5 matches as favourite
  • North Melbourne have covered the line in their last 9 matches

Head to Head

Their head to head clashes are a lot more even than one may think. Richmond leading 3-1 from the last four meetings, but North Melbourne are 6-4 from the last 10.

North Melbourne last won in 2019, coming away six goal winners. The most recent clash went the way of the Tigers in July last year by almost 10 goals.

Richmond Tigers Form

The reigning premiers are well below their best and having some big named personnel out is not help their cause of making the finals.

Going from last year's premiership winners to likely not even making the finals is a big fall from grace. That is the scenario after losing six of their last seven matches.

Having lost to the Geelong Cats and Fremantle Dockers in the last two weeks, the Tigers  come out in this match knowing that the finals dream is right on the line.

They need a spark to find their best footy and return to the dominant Richmond side that we have seen over the last five years.

Richmond Tigers Team News

The Tigers have dropped Ryan Garthwaite, Jack Ross, Jason Castagna, Mabior Chol, Jake Aarts and Josh Caddy.

In come Callum Coleman-Jones, Hugo Ralphsmith, Kamdyn McIntosh, Daniel Rioli and Nick Vlastuin

North Melbourne Form

North Melbourne have had a strange season, going from 100-point floggings to beating some handy sides and potentially avoiding the wooden spoon.

Although beaten by Geelong Cats last week, the margin was only 20 points and they have not been disgraced against the top sides of late.

The Roos were easy winners over Carlton two games back.

North have a reasonable record against Richmond and could be a live chance to win this match if at their best.

Tarryn Thomas and Cam Zurhaar are two of four ins for the Kangaroos. Aiden Bonar and Tom Campbell also come into the side.

Tristan Xerri is ruled out with injury and Jared Polac is managed this week.
