Who will win Hawthorn vs Richmond?
We expect the Tigers to burst Hawthorn's bubble, with Dustin Martin again leading the way. The Brownlow Medal favourite was in sensational touch last week against the Blues, proving the difference with his 31 possessions and 2 goals.
Richmond's gun defender Nick Vlastuin should play on Sunday, despite being subbed out against Carlton with a hyperextended knee. Skipper Trent Cotchin returns from a bout of gastro to further stiffen the premier's defence.
The Hawks showed plenty of life in their second-half comeback last week. They also stunned Richmond early in the 2020 campaign. But we're picking the Tigers to rack up a big score and take another four points in this one.
