Hawthorn vs Richmond Tigers Tips
Both teams come into this match with a win under the belt. Richmond have had such a good record against the Hawks in recent times, and with the pattern being a 1-39 margin this does look the bet.
- Richmond have won 5 of their last 6 matches against Hawthorn
- The last 6 matches between the two sides have all been decided within 1-39 points
Head to Head
Of their last six clashes, Richmond currently lead 5-1, but Hawthorn did defeat them last year by more than five goals in what was an upset victory.
Prior to that, Richmond had comfortably had their measure in five clashes, all by a margin between 1-39 points.
Hawthorn were too tough for Essendon Bombers last week despite trailing by 40 points at one stage of the match.
They had a dominant third quarter and got the chocolates in the final minutes of the match, winning by a point.
The Hawks beat Brisbane Lions to kick off last season but their form dwindled away quite quickly after that performance and after the Covid break.
Hawthorn still have some big guns out of their side, so possibly over the coming month or two when some big names come back into the side, this will improve their performance against the top tier sides like Richmond.
Hawthorn Team News
Chad Wingard is still a week or two away from coming back into the side while Jack Gunston will have at least another month on the sidelines - two very important players to the club's structure.
As a result, the Hawks are unchanged from last week.
