    The Brisbane Lions will be looking for their first win of the season, but it won’t be easy as they take on reigning premiers, the Richmond Tigers at the MCG. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 2:10pm (AEST).

    The Lions have been good this year and have shown huge promise to their success-starved fan-base, but they are yet to take the points in any of the three matches.

    They came closest last week, when they challenged Port Adelaide until the final seconds, where they ultimately came up short, going down by five points at the Adelaide Oval. Stef Martin was again the best for Brisbane, with 30 touches, and 49 hit outs, while new recruit Charlie Cameron had three goals.

    The task for their first win of the year does not get any easier, as they come up against a rampaging Richmond outfit, who are on the hunt to go back-to-back in 2018.

    The Tigers were outstanding against Hawthorn last Sunday. They got out to an early lead, and never let it go, and though they were challenged late by the Hawks, they eventually got over the line by 13 points. Captain Trent Cotchin was among the best with 31 touches, while Jack Riewoldt booted four goals.

    Newbie Jack Higgins makes way for the Tigers, along with Sam Lloyd, as Dion Prestia and Josh Caddy return. For the Lions, they welcome back star midfielder Dayne Beams, and debutant Zac Bailey, with Ryan Lester and Cedric Cox missing out.

    Players to Watch
    Richmond: Dustin Martin
    Who else but Dusty? The 2017 Brownlow Medallist had a quiet game last week. Well, quiet by his standards. He will want to dust off (pun intended) last week’s individual performance and come out firing against the Lions.

    Brisbane: Stefan Martin
    Stef Martin has had an outstanding start to the 2018 season. The former Demon nearly single-handedly brought the Lions over the line last week and will be hoping to go one step further this week and bring Brisbane a famous win.

    Prediction
    The Lions were good last week against a good Port Adelaide side, but they are against a side have hit their strides. Richmond will be good, the Lions will challenge, but it won’t be enough.

    Richmond by 30 points.

    Can Brisbane bring up their first win of the year? Or will Richmond continue their march and make it three and one to start the season? Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 2:10pm (AEST).

      Match Report:

      A Dustin Martin masterclass has paved the way for Richmond to demolish Brisbane by 93 points at the MCG on a gloomy Saturday afternoon.

      Martin was at his best as he played in the forward line for most of the game, booting six goals to lead the way for the Tigers as they notched their third win of the year.

      It was a sorry day for the Lions, as they kicked their lowest ever score in AFL footy, totaling in at 17 points.

      Coming into this game after nearly toppling Port Adelaide the week prior, Brisbane almost had the perfect start when Charlie Cameron looked to kick the first goal of the game in the opening minute for the Lions.

      However, when a controversial score review saw the goal reversed to a point, it was a sign of things to come, as Richmond got into their groove and took control of the first quarter, kicking five goals to none in the first term.

      Things did not get better in the second, with Brisbane constantly making mistakes and the Tigers continuing to find gaps in the Lions’ defensive 50, heading into the break with a 54 point advantage, Brisbane goalless for the first half.

      The third quarter came, and nothing changed for the Lions, as they kept making basic skill errors, and lacking pressure inside their defensive 50 to gift Richmond plenty of chances, which the reigning premiers were more than happy to take.

      It took a dropped chest mark from Toby Nankervis for Brisbane’s first goal, coming with 40 seconds to go in the third term, Dayne Zorko with a roving snap to give the Lions their first goal of the game.

      The final term came quickly for the Lions, as the Tigers tired slightly, but so did the Lions, who continued to make errors, and Richmond just kept coming, eventually putting Brisbane away by NUM points, their highest ever winning margin against Brisbane.

      It was a massive win for the Tigers, who made sure they made a statement against the Lions. Dustin Martin was the star with six goals, while Jason Castagna and Jacob Townsend had three goals apiece.

      It was an horrific afternoon for Brisbane, though there were rare bright spots, with Alex Witherden led the disposal count with 27, and number one draft pick Cam Rayner having his best game to date, with 22 touches and a goal.

      Richmond’s Jack Graham was reported in the third quarter for a late hit on Dayne Zorko.

      Brisbane will be hoping to forget this game and re-group ahead of next week’s Q-Clash with the Gold Coast Suns on Sunday, whilst Richmond will be eying off the Anzac Day Eve clash next Tuesday night against Melbourne, in what looks to be a sell-out.

      FULL TIME:
      Richmond 16.14 (110) defeat Brisbane 2.5 (17) by 93 points.

      Brisbane have kicked their lowest ever score in their AFL history, in what was an horrific afternoon for them. They played poorly, could not hit a target, had no pressure and Richmond ran all over them.

      Meanwhile, the Tigers showed what a quality team they are, Dusty Martin kicking 6 goals for the reigning premiers, They moved the ball so well, were ruthless in defence and sent a message to the rest of the competition that they definitely do not have a premiership hangover.

      Match report will be out soon, thanks for joining me today!

      Rayner gets slammed by Prestia, he took too long and that is ball.

      Prestia to Houli, Grigg to Houli, and they go inside 50, three Tigers are there, they rove to a snapping Grigg, but he kicks this out on the full.
