The Bombers have been up and about in recent weeks, despite their circumstances.

Spirited showings against St Kilda and GWS have shown their fans there is a bright future ahead.

But the Tigers have a point of their own to prove.

Join the No. 1 commentary team in the game on 3AW Football.

TODAY’S LINE-UP from 12PM: Matthew Lloyd, Leigh Matthews, Caroline Wilson, Tim Lane, Tony Leonard, Doc Larkins, and Sam ‘Scoop’ McClure.
