How to watch Geelong Cats vs Richmond Tigers AFL live and match preview


The Tigers and Cats will renew hostilities in a massive MCG blockbuster that could shape the season for both sides.

SUMMARY: Geelong vs Richmond is exclusive to Fox Footy. If you already subscribe to Foxtel iQ with the Sports HD pack you're good to go, if not your best option is to stream live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Leading into Geelong vs Richmond, the Tigers are building nicely having peeled off 6 wins in their last 7 matches to entrench themselves in the top 8. Last week's win over Carlton was full of merit and they'd be looking for a similar scalp here.

Geelong held off West Coast last week after a couple of minor scares, with the win keeping their top 4 prospects well and truly alive.

When is Geelong vs Richmond?

This clash is on Saturday 25 June in the twilight slot of 4:35pm AEST at the magnificent MCG.

How to watch Geelong vs Richmond live

Although the 7 Network has rights to broadcast some AFL matches in Australia, it's likely your team won't feature on free-to-air every week. So to make sure you catch every game of the AFL season live, including Geelong vs Richmond, you'll need access to Fox Footy. This week Geelong vs Richmond is exclusive to Fox Footy, so you'll need a subscription service to watch the match live. That means Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports are your options nationwide to view Geelong vs Richmond.

You can see a comparison of Kayo vs Foxtel here to see which service works best for you.

Both Kayo and Foxtel Now come with free trials and you can watch straight away. We'd recommend Kayo over Foxtel Now as it's a cheaper and far better streaming app. It also has a longer trial period and special viewing features just for sports. But Foxtel Now does come with extra, non-sports related content.

Geelong vs Richmond match preview

Richmond are probably the competition's form side going back to Round 7, with only a narrow loss to Sydney a few weeks ago stopping them from being unbeaten in that time. They should be bolstered this week by the return of champion Dustin Martin who missed last week's game due to illness.

Noah Balta and Trent Cotchin will be sidelined though and their opponents Geelong are set to welcome back Patrick Dangerfield and possibly Gary Rohan.

Geelong vs Richmond

Geelong have been flying under the radar to some degree this year, but if they can win against Richmond they'll put themselves right in the conversation. However the MCG factor might just tip this game the way of the Tigers.

Head here for a breakdown of how to stream the entire AFL season.
