The Tigers (9-6, 117.8%) have won three of their last four games, losing one to the Cats, but lost to Dustin Martin, Ken Lambert (both injured) and Nick Plastin (suspended). When Dion Prestia returns.
Jack Ross was too late for the Tigers, initially replacing Thomson Dow 22. Rory Atkins (Gold Coast Sun) and Noah from Cambridge (Richmond) were medical subs.
Nick Holman was the first to hit the scoreboard in the first two minutes of an equalizer.
Former Richmond player Mabior Chol scored on the other end before hitting the next.
At the start of the game, Tom Lynch missed a shot and jumped off the floor and into the changing room, causing a risk of injury.
Lynch soon withdrew from the field due to muscle strain, as both teams missed opportunities in front of goal.
The latter stream was broken by Shane Edwards and, although at the other end of the spectrum resembled Ben Einsworth, Richmond bounced back with a stunning Tea Bolton finish and then Noah Camberland’s goals.
Gary Lyon has been dubbed the “most dangerous player on the ground” for his ability to influence the game.
Richmond led by 12 points in the quarter.
At the start of the second quarter, Bolton’s opener was wide open, and Bryden Fiorini finally got the inspiration for the Sun.
Their work soon changed, although Jayden Short scored for Richmond after a 50-yard penalty.
Bolton only grabbed one hand and scored the third goal in the second half of the second half.
“How did he do that?” Nick Riewoldt yelled, and Leon made the show “funny.”
As the tigers continued to hit the ball in their 50s, the sun was struggling to resist.
Jack Roweldt’s goal difference was 32 points, but the Suns were lucky to go into the half-time zone with just 34 points, considering the chances missed by the Tigers in the quarterfinals.
In the second quarter, what seemed to be a torrential downpour, Jack Graham scored in the opening minutes to start his third season.
From there, the Suns hit Marsh with three straight goals and reduced the margin to 20 points.
Jack Arts hit one of the sticks in the rod race, but at the other end he met for a goal from The Hague Paul OA.
