The Tigers season has gone from bad to worse suffering three consecutive heavy defeats which has them sitting at the bottom of the AFL ladder. 

The Giants played the best they have in a couple of months getting an important win against the Blues and finding their goal scoring form again.

With the form curves swinging in opposite directions this game will only end in one way and that is the Giants covering the line and having another 100+ point game. 

  • Richmond have lost by an average margin of 53 points in their past 3 matches.
  • GWS have won all three of their Sunday games in 2024, kicking 100+ points in both of their away fixtures.
  • Richmond have conceded an average of 102 points per game in 2024.
  • GWS have scored 100+ points in 6 games this season.

Head to Head

Richmond have a strong record against the GWS, winning their past two contests and 5 of the past 8 since the 2019 season. 

The Tigers have also never lost to the Giants at the MCG in 7 matches since the inception of GWS in the league in 2012.

It is not looking great for the Tigers as they move to the bottom of the AFL ladder and are a long way from removing themselves from the bottom. 

A 51-point loss to Fremantle which followed a 61-point defeat to Carlton and a 48-point drubbing against Hawthorn has things looking gloomy at Punt Road.

Richmond need to rebuild, or maybe that isn't the right word. There are good pieces already in place, but things do need to change and the club needs to take on a new shape after the departure of their veterans last season and maybe a couple more moving on at the end of the season.

For me, GWS came from nowhere and took down one of the premiership favourites Carlton 116-104, beating the Blues at their own game and winning a good ol’ western shootout that even John Wayne would have been proud of. 

The Giants kicked an average of 107.2 points in their opening 7 games where they went 6-1 and were second on the ladder. They then dipped deeper than the USS Thresher (SS-200) scoring just 69.6 points per game in their next 8 matches and had a 2-6 record.

The Giants certainly found their range again kicking 18.8 against the Blues and could be back on course to rise back to the top again.
