    Match preview:

    The North Melbourne Kangaroos will take on the Richmond Tigers at Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 1:10pm AEST.

    The Kangaroos had a tight two-point victory over Sydney last weekend at the SCG. In a low scoring Saturday night match, North Melbourne toughed it out over the four quarters.

    Richmond are also coming off a win in Round 7, smashing Fremantle by 77 points at the MCG. The Tigers are flying high at six wins and one loss.

    Richmond have only made one change to their side – Dion Prestia is out with a calf injury, captain Trent Cotchin will return after missing a week with a minor knee injury.

    There are two changes to the Kangaroo’s line up that beat Sydney, Ed Vickers-Willis is out after injuring the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, and Cameron Zurhaar has been omitted.

    Both ends of the ground are boosted for the Roos’ by this week’s inclusions: defender Majak Daw returns from a minor foot injury and Jarrad Waite will settle into the forward line again after being rested last week.

    The Roos are up and about with 4 wins and looking for respect by toppling the benchmark of the competition, Richmond. Getting their best players on the ground, and Jacobs doing a job on Martin gives them that chance.

    The last time these two teams played was Round 11 2017, Richmond defeated North Melbourne by 35 points on their road to the premiership.

    Whilst North Melbourne are doing better than most predicted at the start of the year, Richmond’s team defence and pressure on the ball carrier will create turnovers. On the fast deck under the roof at Etihad Stadium they will be too good for North Melbourne.

    Richmond by 39.

      Good result for Richmond but they probably should have won by more and were content to cruise at the end. Can’t see North back in the eight again this year but they should avoid the wooden spoon.

      The Richmond Tigers have defeated the North Melbourne Kangaroos by 10 points at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

      When Dylan Grimes broke off half back and charged through the centre, Tigers fans hoped that speed and play would be replicated all day.

      But the Kangaroos put a halt to Richmond’s rebound and made it a hard slog for the Tigers to get their seventh win for 2018.

      The first half of the match was played on Richmond’s terms and they took a 20 point lead into the long break.

      In the third term though, it was all North Melbourne as they lifted their intensity and matched Richmond’s pressure.

      The Tigers weathered the storm and found ways to score in the last, putting themselves up by 12 with only a few minutes to play.

      North Melbourne had the last three scoring shots of the day, but under pressure, the usually accurate Ben Brown and Jed Anderson weren’t able to capitalise for the Roos.

      Ben Cunnington dominated possession for North Melbourne, racking up 32 contested possessions in his 38 disposal game.

      The previous record for contested possessions in a single game was 29, held by Patrick Dangerfield and Josh Kennedy (Sydney).

      Ben Jacobs went to Dustin Martin at the first centre bounce and followed him closely all day, holding Martin to 16 disposals, only 3 contested, and 1 clearance.

      Jed Anderson (28 disposals, 5 tackles) and Jamie Macmillan (20 disposals, 1 goal) were also good for North Melbourne.

      Trent Cotchin led the way for Richmond, with Jacobs masking Martin it was up to the captain to impact the game.

      Cotchin finished with 37 disposals, including 22 contested possessions, and kicked an important goal in the last quarter as well.

      Josh Caddy (4 goals) and Kane Lambert (3 goals) were brilliant up forward for the Tigers, while Bachar Houli (27 disposals) and Nick Vlastuin (26 disposals, 8 tackles) had plenty of the ball rebounding off half-back.

      Luke McDonald was reported for high contact on Kane Lambert, the Match Review Panel will decide whether it was anything more than a free kick.

      Jarrad Waite finished the afternoon on the bench with a corked hip and rolled ankle.

      Next weekend, North Melbourne will host the GWS Giants at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, and Richmond will travel to Optus Stadium for a top of the table clash with West Coast on Sunday afternoon.

      After half time the pressure and intensity from North lifted to match Richmond’s, but the Tigers kicked it up another gear and worked hard for a 10 point win at Etihad Stadium. The Roos’ had the last three scoring opportunities of the match, but kicked 3 behinds.

      Jacobs kept Martin to minimal impact, Caddy was brilliant up forward for the Tigers with 4 goals.

      North Melbourne Brown 2, Atley 2, Waite 2, Wood 2, Higgins, Macmillan, Simpkin

      Kangas did everything right in the last 10 mins – except kick the goals.

      Great D from Richmond, you could see it on Rance’s face at the end.

      Excellent effort by both teams.

      1 minute on the clock: all over you would have to think. Although we saw two last minute goals in the Showdown last night.

      Brown awarded a free kick for in the back. Under pressure, Brown can’t find the middle, misses to the right.
