Richmond Tigers are now the premiership favourites after upstaging the West Coast Eagles last week. Now they face the Fremantle Dockers at Metricon Stadium on Wednesday.

Fremantle were beaten by GWS last week, but had been holding their form well prior to that loss at home. This is the first time that have had to travel since round six, when they beat St Kilda in Queensland.

Facing the Tigers is one of the most daunting prospects in the AFL, especially when they are in this vein of form leading into the Finals.

Richmond Form & Team News

After beating West Coast last week, the Tigers showed why they are the biggest threat this Finals series once again. Or does it show the West Coast Eagles simply are not at their best away from Perth?

To me, it looks like Richmond are back to their brilliant best and they there are very few sides that will be able to stop their charge.

There are two pieces to their puzzle missing, and they are Dion Prestia and Shane Edwards. With both of these boys back towards the end of the season, good luck to the rest of the competition.

Fremantle Form & Team News

Having been poor to begin the year, the Dockers improved during a long run of home games in which they showed there better form.

They fought hard against the GWS Giants last week, but class was against them.

Fremantle have a young and passionate side that look destined for a strong future, including Rising Star favourite Caleb Serong who continues to show maturity beyond his years. But it is looking increasingly unlikely they will be playing finals footy.

Richmond vs Fremantle Match Up

Luke Ryan and Tom Lynch look set for a competitive duel at Richmond's half-forward line.

Ryan continues to play well and does look in line for an All Australian jacket, leading the competition in rebound forward 50's and intercept possessions.

Lynch is a monster down forward, showing so much body strength and aggression at the ball.

If Ryan can maintain and intercept the ball across the half-back, that may solve one problem of a dangerous Richmond forward line.
