Richmond look set to secure a top-two berth and host all of their finals at the MCG this season, as Champion Data rate their remaining draw as the third easiest in the competition.

Six of the Tigers’ last seven games are against clubs currently outside the top eight, and they only have to leave Victorian three more times this season, including a trip to the Gold Coast, where they won easily last season.

The other current top two side – West Coast – have an average run home, as they current own the 10th hardest run home.

North Melbourne will be liking their chances to play finals football, as they have the easiest draw over the final 14 rounds.

The Roos play seven games against bottom six sides after their bye, and only face two more current top four teams for the rest of the season.

Hawthorn could join them in the finals, as they trail only the Roos in terms of the softest schedule.

At the other end of the scale, things look like they could only get tougher for the Western Bulldogs and St Kilda, who currently possess the toughest and third-toughest draw respectively.

Adelaide have the second toughest, which could see them fall outside the top four if their fixture list gets the better of them.
