AFL Live Richmond Tigers vs GWS Giants Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 14 Match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Saturday 04 July 2015 online, 13.40pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Richmond Tigers are rocking and rolling right now and will be bursting with confidence after beating Sydney whilst the Giants are looking to regroup after consecutive losses before their bye.
The Giants will be without best 22 members Joel Patfull, Shane Mumford, Phil Davis, Nick Haynes and Stephen Coniglio but have Tom Scully, Andrew Phillips, Paul Ahern, Curtly Hampton and Jed Lamb all pushing for spots. Don’t expect too many changes to the victorious Richmond side with Matt Dea, Steven Morris, Connor Menadue and more putting their hand up through performances in the VFL.
Richmond is heading a group of four teams tied for sixth on the ladder having won five of their last six games. They rank 10th for total points scored and sixth for least amount of points conceded this season. They are 4-3 both head to head and ATL against bottom eight sides this season.
The Giants have the same win-loss record as Richmond but are ninth on the ladder having lost three of their last four games. They rank fifth for most points scored though only average 75-ppg in their last four matches. They’re ninth for least points conceded this season. They are 2-3 (3-2 against the line) vs top eight teams in 2015.
GWS and Richmond have met four times with the Tigers winning games by 121, 12, 113 and 27 points. The Giants are 2-2 against the line vs Richmond. The Tigers are 7-11 (8-10 against the line) at the MCG since the start of 2014. GWS is 6-11 (8-9 against the line) when on the road in 2014-15. They’re 1-7 (4-4 against the line) at the home of football. Richmond is 3-4 both head to head and against the line when starting as favourite this year. Jack Riewoldt has kicked 16 goals in four games vs GWS. Dustin Martin has had over 32-disposals in two of his last three games against the Giants. The Giants are 0-4 (1-3 against the line) following a bye/week off. Five of the six outsiders covered the line in round 13.
The AFL betting rule has been to tread very careful when Richmond is both playing at home and favourite in 2015 but throw that rationale out the window here. GWS have fallen apart due to injuries to key pillars of their midfield and defence. Jack Riewoldt kicked 11 goals in one of their match-ups in 2014 and coming off six against the Swans, he is primed for another bag. Alex Rance should be able to shut-down Jeremy Cameron whilst if the Tigers midfield dominate like they did in the second half against Sydney then it could be a massive percentage booster.
