The Richmond Tigers are back in form but come up against the best side in the competition in the Brisbane Lions at Metricon Stadium on Tuesday night.

Richmond seemed to have more poise with skipper Trent Cotchin back in the side, and with Dustin Martin back into his Brownlow form they were never going to lose against the Western Bulldogs last week.

Both Cotchin and Martin have been dominant against the Lions in previous seasons, but Brisbane have improved dramatically and could well beat them at Metricon Stadium where they have not faced off before.

Richmond Form & Team News

The Tigers have won four of their last five games in fine fashion, with the only loss in that period coming against the GWS Giants.

Richmond were in poor form a fortnight ago when going down to the Giants, but showed their Premiership colours last week when demolishing the Dogs by 50 points, making the young pups look slow.

Nick Vlastuin looks like the only return for the Tigers, with the solid defender likely line up on Eric Hipwood.

Brisbane Form & Team News

Brisbane stamped their authority last week against Essendon who were clearly needing a tall forward.

They are playing an exciting brand of footy, starting from the backline with Harris Andrew, to Lachie Neale, the Brownlow Medal favourite, and, of course, Charlie Cameron lurking down forward.

The question this week over the Lions is whether Cameron can have an influence on the game, after being shut down by Dylan Grimes in their last two clashes.

Richmond vs Brisbane Head To Head

The Tigers hold the advantage coming into this match, with the Lions not having won a match against them for 11 years.

They looked promising last season but just lacked experience when it mattered.

This should be a close game, hopefully swinging the way of the Lions.

Richmond vs Brisbane Betting Odds

Both sides are equal favourites coming into this game, both sitting at $1.90.

Richmond vs Brisbane Match Up

The obvious match up in this game is between Charlie Cameron and Dylan Grimes.

Grimes has held Cameron in their last two encounters in which Brisbane have been defeated.

When Cameron is playing his best footy, few sides will beat Brisbane. Grimes is one of the best intercept markers in the league, and is underrated for his speed, and is the perfect match up for the Brisbane forward.

If Cameron can figure out how to turn the tables on Grimes, Brisbane will be winning this match.
