Richmond v Melbourne MCG - 7:35 PM

It’s desperate times for one of the preseason premiership favourites as they stare down the barrel of a 1-5 start to the season. While a loss for Melbourne certainly wouldn’t end their season then and there, it’s a long way back, especially for a team that has been so easy to score against in the opening five weeks of the season. Richmond on the other hand will head into the contest full of confidence after back-to-back wins has them back on track and they could even welcome back reigning Coleman Medallist Jack Riewoldt for his first match since Round 2. Melbourne conceded eight consecutive goals to the Saints in a disastrous hour of footy in the middle stage and continued their struggles in front of goal, converting just 36.4% of inside 50 entries into a score. That kind of conversion rate isn’t likely to hold up against a Richmond side that restricted Sydney to just 42 inside 50s during its 32-point victory last week as they look for a third consecutive victory against Melbourne in this fixture.


Key Stat: Richmond has won 19 of its last 20 matches as a home favourite
