The Richmond Tigers welcome back a swathe of premiership heroes as they head to Sydney to battle the Adelaide Crows in another altered Round 11 match. Don’t miss a moment from Giants Stadium with live scores on The Roar from 2:10pm (AEST).
The Tigers were originally supposed to be hosting this match at the MCG, but Victoria’s COVID-19 outbreak has forced them on the road, where they expect to be for the next few weeks at least. However, hub life didn’t faze them last year, given they secured a second consecutive premiership, and could be just the tonic to revive their spluttering 2021.
The reigning champs welcome back skipper Trent Cotchin, plus stars Shai Bolton and Dion Prestia, while big man Callum Coleman-Jones has been recalled for just his second AFL match. Having become renowed as one of the two Tigers in the ‘kebab incident’ on the Gold Coast last year, no doubt the ruck-forward will be keen on making an impact at the highest level.
However, their record in Perth remains imperious, and it would be a major surprise if the Bombers could spring an upset on home turf.
The Crows caused one of the upsets of the year in Round 10 when they inflicted Melbourne’s first defeat of the season. Inspirational forward Taylor Walker was the hero with his last-minute winning goal, and ‘Tex’ will no doubt be high on Damien Hardwick’s list of Crows that must be stopped.
