The game moves to Metricon Stadium as Jack Riewoldt celebrates his 300th AFL appearance. I'm predicting their will be no winning milestone for the Tigers forward with a fifth straight loss predicted for the reigning premiers.

Head to Head

Having lost 15 in a row to the Tigers, Brisbane have won the last two clashes between the sides.

The Lions beat Richmond 69-54 in the first week of the finals last year, and repeated the victory with a 102-74 success in Round 10 this season.

The reigning premiers are in a whole lot of strife after losing four in a row and dropping out of the top eight spots on the ladder.

Damien Hardwick's side have been poor over the last month, starting when losing in the final minute against West Coast Eagles due to a brilliant Josh Kennedy set shot. 

Richmond then went down by 40 points to St Kilda, scoring just 22 points in a 62-22 defeat, and lost by 10 points to Gold Coast Suns.

Last week, Richmond capitulated in the final quarter of an 87-71 defeat to Collingwood as they were outscored seven goals to one in the final term.
