Port Adelaide remain atop the table after another tight albeit impressive win in the midweek round defeating the Bulldogs by 13, with a straighter kick, meaning they kicked 8 goals to 5.  That sets us up for a big clash here, as Richmond reminded us that they were the Premiers of 2019 and will be a real threat again in 2020, after a pertinent 41-point belting of then equal-top team Brisbane.  Hence, a win for Port obviously keeps them a full game clear at the top, while it is more vital for Richmond who can consolidate a top 4 berth with a strong result in this fixture.  Blowy cold weather is predicted in Adelaide for this fixture, meaning both teams will need to be on their game, with accuracy in their disposals in order to not look silly.

The home side, Port, welcome back former Eagle and Premiership Ruckman Scott Lycett for this vital clash, which is a huge inclusion, while promising youngster Lienert is also back into the side, in a defensive role.  Westhoff continues his in-out type season as coach Hinkley has dropped him again, and exciting young Midfielder Mayes is unfortunate to miss due to a suspension.  Richmond too, just have a pair of changes with long-time captain Trent Cotchin missing, with rested being the official reasoning, as he is not quite 100% recovered from a hamstring issue.  Meanwhile, Higgins also misses out, but the Tigers do welcome back two of their Premiership stars, in Josh Caddy and Daniel Rioli, who ought to both add plenty to this already fine side.

Back in April 2019, the Tigers and Port played out a thrilling high-scoring match, where Richmond eventually prevailed by 7, then in July it was one-way traffic as they whooped Port by 38.  Port have a very good record against Richmond, though for many years early in their tenure Richmond were one of many underachievers, they lead 18-13 with 1 draw.  Bookies cant split these sides as both are listed at $1.91 for the fixture on short rest, with just a 1.5-point handicapped margin in favour of the Tigers.  Richmond will certainly be on a high from their huge win against Brisbane, but they have also had to travel to Adelaide, while Port ought to be fairly fresh after enjoying some time at home.

PREDICTION: Toss a coin, Richmond by a goal.

BETTING TIP: Its sure to be tight, so pick your team and bet 1-39 margin, Port and Richmond are both $2.15.
