AFL Live Richmond Tigers vs Fremantle Dockers Stream AFL 2017 Regular Seasons Round 08 match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground, East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 14 May 2017 online, 12:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Richmond have suffered two losses in a row having won their first five matches. But Tigers fans shouldn’t be too concerned though as both defeats were to quality sides in the shape of the Adelaide Crows and the Western Bulldogs respectively.
Fremantle Dockers are very inconsistent and were lucky to run away with a win at home against the Essendon Bombers last week.
Fremantle struggle on the road, although they will be looking for a repeat performance of their Round 4 win at the G against Melbourne Demons.
These two sides match up pretty well and have had some even games over the past few years. Richmond look to be the more consistent side at this stage of the year and have more depth on their list.
Tiger fans will be out in force again at the MCG and should have those vocal chords ready for another fine rendition of the Yellow and Black song come the final siren.
Richmond Tigers lose Nick Vlastuin to a shoulder injury and leave out Ivan Soldo and Anthony Miles. In come Toby Nankervis, Shane Edwards and Jake Batchelor.
Fremantle Dockers are forced into one change with illness sidelining Harley Balic. Danyle Pearce replaces him.
Richmond will be too powerful for Fremantle in this one at home. I think the Tigers can push for a top 4 spot in 2017 and in order to do that they must take scalps at home particularly against interstate sides.
Martin is in great form and Riewoldt is starting to find some goals. Nankervis is back to take on Sandilands in the ruck and should be too agile around the ground.
