A bitter recent rivalry resumes hostilities at the MCG as Richmond take on Geelong in another match with major top-eight implications. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 4:35pm (AEST).
The Tigers have long been the masters of this duel, claiming several major scalps over the Cats, most famously the 2017 qualifying final, 2019 preliminary final and 2020 grand final. However, the Cats won both matches in 2021 as the Tigers slid out of the finals.
However, in 2022 the yellow and black have surged back into contention, winning five of their last six games to race up the ladder. Last week’s win over Carlton might have been their most impressive yet, the Tigers racking up a whopping 76 inside-50s to down the Blues.
The Cats are also in excellent touch, and with a handy draw to come, are looking good for yet another top-four finish. However, with superstar Patrick Dangerfield to miss again with his calf injury, they’ll need to dig deep to take down the Tigers.
Forward Gary Rohan and the pacy Max Holmes are among the inclusions for the Cats, while the Tigers have lost captain Trent Cotchin and utility Noah Balta, while regaining champion Dustin Martin.
