Geelong has had a tough month after starting the season 7-0, losing all four matches, as their season got a real reality check after facing a few of the top contenders for the premiership. 

The Cats will welcome a lighter competition this week and will return to the winners circle, although it will be the Tigers that will continue to put in the effort and cover the 45.5 points as underdogs.

Adem Yze’s Tigers suffered a couple of large defeats, however, they appeared to have rectified their efforts on the defensive side of the ball last week and that will once again be the focus for the Tiger’s. Expect Richmond to be more disciplined and hold the Cats Under 109.5 points.

  • Geelong have beaten Richmond by over 45.5 points in just 1 of their past 7 games.
  • Geelong have had just one 40+ win this season.
  • Geelong have scored over 109.5 points in just 2 games this season.
  • Richmond have conceded Under 109.5 points in 9 of 11 games this season.

Geelong have fallen off a cliff over the past month, but in hindsight it is no surprise considering their competition, however, the Cats did give their fans hope after beating the Blues in Round 7, which was the last win. 

Geelong won their first 7 games of the year, although six of them were against teams that are not currently in the top-eight and the seventh was Carlton who occupy the final spot above the bracket. Their last 4 games have been against three teams in the top-five and a match in tough Darwin conditions against the tenth-placed Suns, losing all encounters.

The Cats almost snatched victory from the Giants last week, pulling back a 31-point third quarter deficit to take the lead in the fourth but couldn’t hold on, eventually going down 78-74.

Geelong Team News

Gary Rohan (adductor) and Rhys Stanley (knee) are both expected to clear their test later in the week. 

Patrick Dangerfield and Cam Guthrie are both a couple of weeks away.

It was a better response from Richmond last week who took the second-placed Bombers to the brink of their third loss of the season, as Essendon only kicked clear with 10 minutes left in the final term. 

The Tigers showed that they can be competitive after being dusted by a combined 210 points in the past two matches. Adem Yze’s troops even took the lead in the third quarter and had a chance to get the upset, kicking the first four behinds of the final term which could have seen them move in front if they could have found their accuracy. 

The reality is though, the Tigers have just one shock win against the Swans to their name in what has been a more dismal 2024 than expected.

Richmond Team News

Great news for Richmond with Jack Graham (hamstring), Jacob Bauer (quad) and Rhyan Mansell (concussion) all likely to be named this weekend. 

Jacob Hopper is still one month away with a hamstring injury.
