How to watch Richmond Tigers vs Adelaide Crows AFL live and match preview
Richmond play Adelaide in Sydney on Sunday after Victoria enters another COVID-19 lockdown.
Richmond will be desperate to arrest the stop-start nature of their premiership defence when they play Adelaide in Sydney on Sunday. The match has been shifted to the Harbour City from the MCG after Victoria went into a seven-day lockdown following a new coronavirus outbreak in Melbourne.
Last week's loss to Brisbane sent the Tigers outside the eight for the first time since round eight last season.
For the Crows it's a different story. They make the trip east fresh off a stunning win against the previously undefeated Melbourne. That ended a run of five straight losses. It was Adelaide's fourth win of the season, surpassing the three they managed in collecting the wooden spoon last year.
When is Richmond vs Adelaide?
The opening bounce is at 2:10pm AEST at Giants Stadium on Sunday 30 May.

Who will win Richmond vs Crows?
Somewhat surprisingly given their respective recent fortunes, these teams have shared the spoils in their four meetings since the 2017 grand final, winning two apiece.
Richmond's search for momentum took another hit this week with news star forward Tom Lynch might miss six weeks with a knee injury, adding to an already long injury list.
Beware the wounded Tiger. Richmond have welcomed the scrutiny they've faced during this dominant era, even thrived on it. And while evidence is growing to the contrary, it's still too early to write them off just yet.
Everything will need to go right for the Crows to prevail in this one. Confidence from last week's shock win against the Demons will help. As will their reasonable recent record against the Tigers. Lynch being out helps too. Still, it looks like a task too great to us.
