The competitions two most in-form teams face-off at ANZ Stadium on Saturday in what is one of Richmond’s most important games in a long, long time.
The Tigers must win to assure themselves a finals spot, which was almost unthinkable two months ago when Damien Hardwick’s side were languishing in 15th with a 3-10 record.
Sydney have top spot locked in barring disaster, and will see this game as the perfect tune-up for its fight for the premiership in September.
Richmond welcome back the influential Dustin Martin back into the lineup after hamstring soreness, while Sydney will be missing Mike Pyke through illness.
You would expect Sydney to do the job at home, but with the form the Tigers are in you simply cannot count them out.
1. The Swans have already locked up their most successful home and away season ever with win No.17 last week. They had previously won 16 games in a year on six occasions – 1935-36, 1945, 1986, 1996 and 2012.
2. This will be the 190th match between the two teams. Richmond holds sway 103-85, with one draw. Since 2006, however, the Swans can boast an 11-3 record against the Tigers.
3. No team has received more free kicks this year than Richmond. They average 18.6 per game, while the Swans are 12th with 16.3.
4. Lance Franklin was the difference between the teams in round 14 this year, kicking four of the Swans’ nine goals in a low-scoring contest. Franklin is nine goals clear of Jarryd Roughead in the race for the Coleman Medal.
5. This will only be Richmond’s second appearance at ANZ Stadium. They played the Swans at the Olympic stadium back in round 22, 2002, losing by 40 points.
6. Richmond has seven players in the top 100 of the Official AFL Player Ratings, but none of them are currently in the top 50. Brett Deledio, at No.57 overall, leads the way.
