AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs Richmond Tigers Stream AFL Football 2016 Online, AFL Round 02 Match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground Stadium, Melbourne, Australia, Friday 01 April 2016 online, 02.50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The MCG will play host to a packed crowd this Friday night as the Magpies take on the Tigers. Collingwood will be looking to bounce back after being humiliated by the Swans in Round 1 – probably their worst team performances of the last few years. The Tigers, meanwhile, managed a gritty win against the Blues after losing a big chunk of their list. It wasn’t the best performance, however, so they will need to show more this week if they are going to go 2-0.
The Tigers have won the last two games against the Magpies, including a big 91-point victory in Round 21 of last year. But they haven’t had to face the Pies with such a depleted list. It’s looking like Brett Deledio will once again bet out, while Shane Edwards is now also in doubt after breaking his hand earlier this week. Reece Conca is out long term, along with Chris Yarren. Shaun Grigg and Shane Edwards will hopefully take the field, while Ivan Maric looks like he could be back after pulling out late last week.
The injuries might be the biggest worries for the Tigers, but even the players they had on the field like Trent Cotchin, Dustin Martin and Brandon Ellis were beaten by the Blues. They will be desperate to bounce back this week and happy to take on the Pies without Dane Swan, Steele Sidebottom and Travis Varcoe. On the back of the Pies performance last week, and with those major outs, I think there is value on Richmond head-to-head here. I don’t think the Pies will play as poorly as they did against the Swans, but that game certainly would have hurt their confidence.
