How to watch Hawthorn vs Richmond AFL live and match preview

Posted: 14 May 2022 8:00 am

Richmond are gunning for 3 in a row as they take on a Hawks team that needs a victory to stay in touch with the finals.

SUMMARY: Hawthorn Hawks vs Richmond Tigers is on Fox Footy. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Hawthorn are coming into this match vs Richmond on the back of 3 losses, but that's not the whole story. The Hawks held strong leads over both Sydney and Essendon before getting run down, and they also pushed Melbourne to within 20 points.

In essence, their form isn't as bad as the record might suggest.

Richmond's last fortnight has been ruthless with a couple of big victories. The return of Dustin Martin and the form of Tom Lynch have been major factors.

When is Hawthorn vs Richmond?

These 2 sides will battle it out at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday 14 May at 1:45pm.

Hawthorn vs Richmond match preview

Richmond are starting to demonstrate that the brilliance of their premiership years hasn't entirely left them.

Glimpses shown in particular over the past fortnight have some suggesting they could still do some damage this season.

With the midfield close to full strength and the forward line looking potent, we'd expect the Tigers to win against a brave and gallant Hawthorn team that is just struggling to run out games.

We have a breakdown here of the full AFL season draw.
