The Richmond Tigers saw an impressive three-game winning run brought to an end last week as they were hammered 130-98 by the Melbourne Demons and they find themselves down in 11th. Can they jump back into the eight?

Head to Head

The Dogs battled to an 89-84 win when the sides met back in April, with this win ending a run of three victories in a row for the Tigers. 

In their last 10 meetings, the Tigers have four wins, while the Dogs have six victories. 

Western Bulldogs Form 

The Western Bulldogs struggled to get anything going against a stubborn GWS Giants in their last game as they were beaten at home, with this their third defeat in four games. 

The loss means the Dogs are now just two points clear of Geelong, Sydney Swans and Richmond, while there are another three teams that are just four points behind them on the ladder. 

The Dogs have a woeful record of four defeats in their last five home games and need a turnaround in fortunes.

Richmond Tigers Form 

Richmond could not make it four wins in a row as they were comfortably beaten by the Melbourne Demons in a 130-98 defeat last week. 

This loss followed wins over the Sydney Swans, West Coast Eagles and Hawthorn Hawks that put the Tigers back in the picture of the finals.

The Tigers are still on the hunt for a top-eight berth and would jump above the Dogs with a win.
