Who will win Richmond vs Brisbane Lions?

This is one of the true heavyweight showdowns as the 2020 competition really starts to take shape. The Tigers were coming under a little pressure following their defeat to GWS a fortnight ago. But they showed some premiership swagger in casting aside the Bulldogs in round nine.

The Lions have benefited from the AFL draw, with six of their nine matches either at the Gabba or Metricon Stadium. Regardless they have shown improvement on last year's jump up the ladder and will be primed to show their development against the premiers. With the match in Queensland, we're leaning towards a narrow Brisbane win.
