FULL TIME

Richmond has won by nine goals after a first-half blitz.

The match was over at half time as the Tigers took a 58-point lead into the main break.

St Kilda managed to win the second half, but the damage had well and truly been done.

Matthew Lloyd said Dion Prestia was the best player on the ground.

“It was the most damaging I’ve seen him,” Lloydy said.

STEVEN’S FREAKISH EFFORT

Jack Steven has put in a contender for Goal of the Year.

Steven hit a freakish volley from next to the behind post to give the Saints something to smile about after a horrid first half.

HALF TIME

The Tigers have burst out of the blocks with a scintillating first half!

Richmond has kicked 11 goals to two and lead by 58 points at the main break.

Jack Riewoldt has more goals than the Saints, with three.

Tony Shaw said it’s been “embarrassing” for St Kilda.

Matthew Lloyd said it’s been a “demolition”.

“It’s men against boys,” Lloydy said.

THE BUILD-UP

The Saints have strung together three wins from their past four.

And we all know what they did when they met around this time last year.

The Tigers have also won three from four, falling just short against GWS last week.

They won’t be out to let St Kilda hand them back-to-back defeats.

The stage is set for a hard-fought battle.

And the match will serve as a fundraiser for Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision, a charity helping fund research into Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes. You can donate to MRV here.
