Show Preview

The annual Dreamtime at the ‘G match has arrived to headline the Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round, with Essendon looking to defeat Richmond for the first time in the fixture since 2014. Join The Roar for live scores and rolling coverage from 7:30pm (AEST).

With the form we have witnessed from both sides this season, it would be brave to tip a 2-7 Bombers to defeat a Tigers outfit on a three-game win streak.

History would suggest big games and packed crowds are the perfect ingredients for close and exciting matches however so nothing is out of the equation.

In the last four encounters between the two teams, Richmond have won by less than four goals on three occasions.

The Bombers haven’t beaten Richmond since round 11, 2014, however, leaving the Tigers in the hot seat to continue their winning run of 12 straight games against the red and black.

The Bombers will be without midfielder Jye Caldwell and Jordan Ridley (health and safety protocols), while Devon Smith will come into the side.

Tigers will be missing last week’s debutant Bigoa Nyuon, Jack Graham (toe), Marlion Pickett (suspended) and Noah Balta (hamstring). Jack Ross, Josh Gibcus and Robbie Tarrant will come into the Tigers’ line-up.
