How to watch Richmond Tigers vs West Coast Eagles AFL live and match preview
The Tigers are on the rebound from a controversial loss to Geelong as they host a rejuvenated West Coast this week.
West Coast snapped a 9-game losing streak last week with an entertaining win over Essendon at Optus stadium. West Coast are slowly building and welcoming players back in the process, putting them in good stead vs Richmond.
Richmond came from 35 points down to lead Geelong by 16 in the last quarter of last week's match, only to go down by less than a kick. They also lost Dion Prestia in a sickening clash with Cats defender Tom Stewart.
When is Richmond vs West Coast?
This match is on Sunday 3 July at the mighty MCG with the first bounce in the traditional slot of 2:10pm AEST.

Richmond vs West Coast match preview
A couple of weeks ago, this looked to be a fairly uninspiring fixture, but the last few matches have changed that significantly.
After a run of heavy defeats, the Eagles put in a gallant home performance in a narrow loss to Geelong before defeating Essendon at the same venue last week.
Richmond had a great win over Carlton before losing 1 of the games of the year to Geelong last Saturday.
The Tigers have done little wrong over the last 2 months and with everything to play for, they should be able to bank the 4 points here.
