Preview

The Tiger bandwagon is full to the brim, as they sit 4-0, and look like they may play finals footy. This week will be an exciting match-up against the young and upcoming Demons.

Melbourne will welcome back Jesse Hogan, after his suspension. He will provide an important target up forward, however, will likely face the tough match-up of Alex Rance.

Richmond have been rolling, and have shown their ability to perform in all conditions. This current wave of confidence could be the difference in this game. The Demons are on a run of two losses, and look to be lacking in some self belief.

Despite winning their past three games against the Tigers, Melbourne are likely to drop another game. If the Tigers go 5-0, be prepared for the lid to come well and truly off for their supporters. That's if it hasn't happened already.

Tip: Tigers by 9
