Richmond vs Collingwood match preview

The Tigers have shown quite a few glimpses of their brilliant best from the recent flag era over the early rounds. They've had a couple of flat spots but it appears that their best football can still hurt teams.

The return of Dustin Martin will only enhance that further with his ability through the middle and up forward.

Collingwood covered the loss of Brodie Grundy really well last week with a comfortable win over the Gold Coast Suns. They'll be looking to keep their high scoring run going.

If you line the 2 sides up next to each other it is difficult to split them. The return of Martin however might tip the ledger towards the Yellow and Black.
