AFL Live Adelaide Crows vs Richmond Tigers Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 19 Match will be kick off at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia Friday 07 August 2015 online, 19.20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
After upsetting the Hawks last Friday, the Tigers need to continue the momentum to continue to push for a top four berth. The Crows must win to further their finals chances.
The Crows will be without Richard Douglas (appendix) with Nathan van Berlo, Sam Kerridge and Mitch Grigg all in contention to replace him. Matt Jaensch and Brad Crouch are still missing. Don’t expect too many changes for Richmond with big men Shaun Hampson and Liam McBean both pushing for inclusions. Ben Griffiths and Shane Edwards are both injured.
The Tigers have won nine of their past 11 including wins over Fremantle, Sydney and Hawthorn and they arguably should have beaten Fremantle again two weeks ago. Richmond is 7-3 (5-5 against the line) vs bottom ten sides this season. They rank 11th in points scored and fourth in least points conceded this season. The Crows have won three of their last five and will be looking to bounce back from a 52-point loss to Sydney last week. They’re 1-5 (2-4 against the line) vs top eight teams this season.
Adelaide and Richmond have met 32 times with the Crows leading 20-12. Since 2010, Richmond is 4-2 both head to head and against the line vs Adelaide. The Crows are 11-9 (11-9 against the line) at the Adelaide Oval. Since 2012, Richmond is 15-8 (15-8 against the line) when playing interstate – going 9-2 head-to-head and at the line in 2014-15. . Richmond is 13-10-1 (14-10 against the line) in Thursday or Friday night matches since 2010. The Crows are 3-5 (2-6 against the line) in Thursday/Friday games since the start of 2012. Richmond is 13-7 (8-12 against the line) when starting as favourite in 2014-15. Four of their past five games have totalled over 179-points. Patrick Dangerfield is averaging 31.5 disposals in his last four games.
It is impossible not to be taken by Richmond’s dismantling of Hawthorn last weekend after going so close against Fremantle the week before that. The way they starved Hawthorn of the ball and their ferocity both at the contest and the opponent should be too much for Adelaide to contend with. That and the Tigers have one of the more in-form fullbacks in the league in Alex Rance who should be able to take care of Taylor Walker. If Richmond’s leaders Ivan Maric, Trent Cotchin, Jack Riewoldt and Dustin Martin come out with the same intent as they did against Hawthorn, then they should cover the line easily. Though the Wolf believes it will be close, the Tigers could blow this one out so the $6 for a 40+ point thrashing looks tasty.
