Only one of Richmond or St Kilda can progress through to a preliminary final against Port Adelaide. This is how to watch.

SUMMARY: Tigers vs Saints will be live on Channel 7 and Fox Sports. So if you have access to Channel 7 or 7mate you can watch the game for free. If not your best option is to stream the match on Kayo Sports. You can watch via Kayo for no cost using this 14-day free trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Richmond, winners of two of the past three AFL premierships, are suddenly under siege. Beaten by Brisbane Lions last weekend and missing some key personnel, if they drop this match their dominant era could be over.

The Tigers take on a St Kilda side that has been one of the great success stories of 2020. Comfortably in the finals picture for most of this coronavirus-affected year, they had a little wobble late before recovering and then knocking out the Bulldogs in round one of the finals. They will be eager for this shot at the champions.

When is Richmond vs St Kilda?

Richmond vs St Kilda begins at 7:50pm AEDT on Friday 9 October 2020. The match will be played at Metricon Stadium.

How to watch Richmond vs St Kilda

Channel 7 and Fox Footy both have the broadcast rights to Richmond vs St Kilda. So for anyone who has access to Channel 7 you should be good to go. Depending on the state you live in, Richmond vs St Kilda may be on 7mate instead of Channel 7. The match will not be available via 7plus so if you want to stream you'll need a subscription service.

Your streaming options to watch are via Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now or Kayo Sports. If you're looking to watch from overseas you'll need Watch AFL. We have a full guide to the AFL season here.

Who will win Tigers vs Saints?

What a great game this could be between the champions and the upstart youngsters desperate for success. Richmond have most of the cards in their favour, with experience, depth and a number of genuine superstars who have done it all before. St Kilda, meanwhile, have the exuberance of youth. If the Saints are able to maintain focus and not get overawed, it could be their day. But we're not ready to write off the Tigers just yet, we'll say Richmond by a couple of goals.
