It’s a remarkable story.
The Tigers were 4-10 in round 15 with all hopes of a finals spot seemingly gone, but a remarkable turn in form saw Damien Hardwick’s men win nine straight games and reach the finals for a second consecutive year.
Like any narrative however, it needs an ending.
Port Adelaide have turned the newly revamped Adelaide Oval into a fortress, but Richmond are going into the game with a ‘nothing to lose’ mentality.
Richmond will take plenty of confidence out of its win over Port in July, the only question that remains is if the Tigers have anything left in the tank.
Their win over Sydney last week will have taken its toll on the playing group both physically and mentally, but Port were also involved in a high intensity game in its narrow loss to Fremantle in Perth.
The Tigers need to find a way to shut down AFL Coaches Association Award-winner Robbie Gray, along with star forward Chad Wingard.
Neither team have made any changes for the clash, and it’s a difficult one to call.
It’s hard to look past Port Adelaide at home, though.
Tune in, it’s sure to be a cracking game of finals football.
1. Since round 15 Richmond has won nine consecutive matches, kicking an average score of 90 points while conceding only 68. In contrast, Port Adelaide has lost six of nine games while averaging only 81 points a game.
2. The Tigers will be looking for their first finals wins since the 2001 semi-final against Carlton. They haven’t won an elimination final since 1977.
