Preview

Another chapter of the ‘Dreamtime at G’ game sees Richmond and Essendon go head-to-head once again. It is two very different stories for each side in this game. The Tigers are coming off four straight losses, three of which have been under a kick, while the Dons have won two on the trot and are playing some inspired footy.

The form of Joe Daniher has been riveting to watch. Since his commitment, passion, and goal-kicking was questioned, the forward has been on a tear. It set to be an amazing match-up between Daniher and Rance, and hopefully we see a lot of it.

This should be an epic clash, with the league hoping that 80,000+ fans will be in attendance. It is a tough game to predict, however, it looks to go against form.
