Richmond nudge their way back into the top four after tonight’s win
Richmond remains in the run for a top two finish after defeating Melbourne at the MCG.
The Tigers took out a 33-point win over the fade out Dees, who failed to fight back against Hardwick’s pressure.
Dustin Martin was back to his dominant best and Tom Lynch kicked three goals for the Tiges.
Wet weather condition definitely played in Richmond’s hand and the second half showcased the sides raw talent.
More to come…
You can’t beat Richmond by playing safe and Melbourne have come in hard.
They trail by just three points, however they were starting to dwindle at the end the second term.
If they can uphold the fight and stamina they might stay in it.

A top two spot is still a possibility for Richmond and a win tonight will push them inches closer.
Melbourne’s season will end after round 23 but upset would bring some much needed brownie points for Goodwin heading into 2020.
Team fade-outs have been an issue for the Dees, so a four quarter effort would be good to see from the blue and red.
