How to watch Richmond Tigers vs Gold Coast Suns AFL live and free

Posted: 17 August 2020 3:43 pm

Premiers Richmond need a strong victory against Gold Coast at the Gabba in Brisbane. This is how to tune in.

SUMMARY: Tigers vs Suns is exclusive to Fox Footy. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Following their defeat to Port Adelaide in round 11, Richmond have lost some ground on the top 4. Even with a strong win over the Suns in this one, the Tigers can't move any higher than their current position of sixth. That means it's a match they can't afford to lose.

The Suns were unlucky not to overcome Essendon in last week's draw, when they couldn't convert two late shots on goal. Their finals hopes have faded in recent weeks, although an upset win over the premiers would leave them just two points outside the top eight.

Who will win Tigers vs Suns?

Richmond's defeat to Port proved particularly costly as the teams directly above them – St Kilda, West Coast, Geelong and Brisbane – all won in round 12. The top four at the end of the season get a double chance in the finals so the Tigers need to keep winning.

The Suns may end 2020 wondering what might have been after they got off to a great start. They have missed some opportunities, notably in losses to the Bulldogs and Saints by less than a goal, and last week's draw will still be gnawing at them. But Richmond are surely too experienced and have too much at stake to lose this game to the improving Queenslanders.
