    Thanks for your company tonight. The Bombers travel to Sydney next week and Richmond visit the Eagles. Bye for now!

  • Q4 26:30

    More than 80,000 fans watched this one play out partly to script. The Bombers maintain a foothold in the top four and Richmond sit at ninth. Watson wins the Yiooken Medal.

  • Q4 26:30

    The siren sounds for full time as Essendon wins by 29 points. Richmond were a little disappointing tonight and Essendon were most impressive.

  • Q4 25:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSStanton has a late shot on goal but is just offline. The sting is out of this contest now.

  • Q4 23:30

    GOAL BOMBERSCrameri marks the high ball from Myers deep in the left pocket. He curls home the goal and the Bombers will win.

  • Q4 21:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSLonergan is caught by Jetta with his pants down in front of goal. The ex-Bomber is given a reprieve as his ex-teammate shanks the shot to ice it.

  • Q4 20:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSHeppell off line to the left. Tigers hanging in by a claw.

  • Q4 18:00

    BEHIND TIGERSCotchin bursts through the middle of the ground. His long kick is ordinary but Riewoldt up-and-unders to the hot spot where Martin snaps it into the post.

  • Q4 16:20

    GOAL TIGERSEdwards with the quick snap and Martin is playing in front like his junior coaches always told him to. The chest mark 15m out leads to another Richmond goal. Surely not...

  • Q4 14:30

    GOAL TIGERSBatchelor with a clever kick to the advantage of Houli dashing down from defence. He chips to Edwards who goes back and kicks the goal. Still time in theory.

  • Q4 12:50

    BEHIND TIGERSMcGuane with a little space hard up against the boundary line. The Tigers need this and a whole lot more but it hits the post.

  • Q4 08:20

    Good hard attack on the footy from both sides. Edwards winds up with the pill from outside fifty but nobody shepherds and his pressured kick is out on the full.

  • Q4 05:30

    BEHIND TIGERSMaric gets underneath an old fashioned mongrel punt and clunks it 40m out directly in front. His shot on goal is horrible though. Tigers trails by 34.

  • Q4 04:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSJetta tries to do it all from the pocket and almost does.

  • Q4 02:20

    GOAL BOMBERSStanton with the second effort finds a stack of room and time and from 20m out snaps a soft reply. Like a quiz show maestro, the Bombers have all the answers tonight.

  • Q4 00:30

    GOAL TIGERSOh yes they can! Cotchin playing deep up forward turns on a dime and off a step curls home a beauty from the pocket. Just the start they wanted.

  • Q4 00:30

    Final term is underway...can the Tigers fight back?

  • Q3 26:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSChaplin with a howler kicks it straight to Myers on the arc. The left-footer on the siren falls short and Maric punches it through. Bombers by 34 points and looking very solid.

  • Q3 24:00

    GOAL BOMBERSWatson with a clever kick finds Howlett who is 40m out on the run and answering quickly for the Bombers.

  • Q3 21:10

    GOAL TIGERSMartin on the end of a rare move through the corridor drills the low pass to Riewoldt. The Tigers spearhead dobs his second from 35m out on a slight angle. Tigers hanging in.

  • Q3 19:30

    McGuane nearly loses his head and half belts Hooker as the Essendon defender closes him down. That was almost vintage biffo at the 'G.

  • Q3 16:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSZaharakis with exemplary recovery, rolls around onto his left and seeks out Watson on the lead. The Bombers captain lines up for his fourth and misses.

  • Q3 13:00

    Vickery has been subbed out for Matt White as Richmond seek something like balance.

  • Q3 10:30

    GOAL TIGERSVlastuin on the end of a chain of handpasses kicks a neat goal from 45m out on the run. The Tigers now need to kick long, high, hard and hope.

  • Q3 07:00

    GOAL BOMBERSCrameri floats into space 15m from goal and takes an easy mark. Bombers rolling along here as Crameri guides it home.

  • Q3 04:30

    GOAL BOMBERSWatson outlasts Rance close to the boundary line, his handball in-board finds Melksham who rips off the vest and snaps a left foot goal. Bombers by 32 points.

  • Q3 03:40

    Melksham has been subbed in for the unlucky Hurley.

  • Q3 01:00

    Carlisle is on top of Riewoldt at the moment. Alongside Hooker he is repelling numerous Richmond attacks.

  • Q3 00:30

    GOAL BOMBERSWatson grubbers a clever goal from the congestion. Hardwick will be dirty with the intensity at that stoppage.

  • Q2 29:40

    Archie Roach played a rousing live version of 'Colour of your Jumper' at halftime and the Tigers will be looking to find more yellow and black through the corridor if they are to turn this around.

  • Q2 29:30

    Maric marks deep in defence as the siren sounds for half time. The margin is 20 points in favour of the Bombers on the back of a fivegoal burst, but Richmond started to link up late in the term.

  • Q2 27:10

    GOAL TIGERSA masterclass in dinky skills from Big Jack as Little Robin gets on the end of a neat left foot chip from the boundary line. Nahas guides home the much-needed major nearing half time.

  • Q2 25:50

    BEHIND TIGERSTigers finally get on the spread. Deledio laces out finds Martin 50m from goal. The razor-haired assassin hooks this one left.

    Michael Hurley rolled his ankle badly and it looks like the red vest awaits.

  • Q2 21:30

    BEHIND TIGERSVlastuin with some rare poise for the Tigers this term finds Martin unchecked 40m from goal. The Tiger pin-up boy hangs it out to the right.

  • Q2 20:00

  • Q2 11:25

    GOAL BOMBERSNahas turn it over in the centre of the ground and the Bombers pounce as Hocking feeds Zaharakis and the gun goes bang from outside fifty.

  • Q2 09:45

    BEHIND TIGERSMartin snaps from traffic but Fletcher is the only man home and the veteran escorts the bouncing ball through for a behind.

  • Q2 08:00

    GOAL BOMBERSCrameri finds space inside fifty after Jobe Watson evades the entire Richmond midfield and caresses the pass to his forward. Crameri wobbles the kick home from 40m out. Bombers by 8.

  • Q2 06:00

    GOAL BOMBERSStanton to Heppell to Zaharakis and the ex-Marcellin college kid dashes inside fifty, lines up the big sticks and puts the bombers back in front.

  • Q2 03:40

    BEHIND BOMBERSMaric and Martin fumble the ball through for a comedic rushed behind.

  • Q2 01:00

    GOAL TIGERSEx-Bomber Lonergan shuffles the handpass to the tattoed muscle machine from North Heidelberg and Jake King roosts the footy into the third tier from the goal square.

  • Q1 26:20

    A fairly stagnant opening term with both sides creating few scoring chances. Riewoldt, Newman and Cotchin look likely for Richmond, while Zaharakis, Heppell and Stanton have started well for Essendon.

  • Q1 26:20

    Dempsey finds Howlett on the arc as the siren sounds. Ben Howlett's kick is on target but falls short. The Bombers by a point at the first change.

  • Q1 25:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSGoddard from 48m on the run. Hurley thinks it's home but it's punched through near the line. Kommer with a cool head in the build up.

  • Q1 24:20

    GOAL TIGERSMartin forces the ball forward with brute strength. McGuane is first off the mark and the wild man plucks it 20m directly in front. He makes no mistake and the Tigers get some reward.

  • Q1 21:00

    Tempo footy at the moment. Very few contested possessions as both sides try to find their rhythm.

  • Q1 18:30

    Vlaustin tackled hard close to goal. Umpire deems it legal and the Bombers win the relieving free kick.

  • Q1 16:50

    Chaplin pins the ball to Riewoldt's chest 50m from goal. The spearhead dances around Carlisle then kicks it out on the full.

  • Q1 12:50

    GOAL BOMBERSEssendon play a possession game by foot from half back. Eventually the long bomb inside fifty is contested by Bellchambers. Watson roves 20m from goal. Classy finish by the skipper.

  • Q1 11:00

    GOAL BOMBERSWinderlich marks 15m out after a smooth transition by the Bombers. The livewire goes back and evens the scores. Great contest at the 'G.

  • Q1 08:20

    BEHIND TIGERSRiewoldt with an early leap and chest mark in the left forward pocket. From 48m out he hits the post. Looking ominous though is Jack.

  • Q1 06:00

    BEHIND TIGERSJackson streams towards goal and has a ping from 50-odd out. Looks to be sailing home but Carlisle escorts it into the post. Was he behind the line?

  • Q1 04:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSHurley snaps around the body on the left foot and celebrates prematurely. The review system in full effect here. Touched off the boot.

  • Q1 02:30

    GOAL TIGERSCotchin with the delightful left foot pass to Riewoldt on the lead. Jack makes no mistake from 45m out on the 45 degree angle and the Tigers are away.

  • Q1 01:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSRushed through by the Richmond defence as Hurley loomed large in front of goal.

  • Q1 00:33

    Hocking with the first foray forward and Crameri marks on the lead. His kick lobs in the square and Cotchin clears the congestion.

  • Q1 00:00

    Welcome to Country and welcome to this epic Round 9 fixture. The players are taking their positions. The buildup has been September-esque. Let's hope the footy can deliver!

  • Q1 00:00

    The Tigers have been fancied on a number of big occasions this season but have not delivered, while the Bombers slipped up badly last week. Intriguing contest but the smart money says Essendon.

  • Q1 00:00

    The substitute for Richmond is speedster Matt White, while for Essendon, the zippy Jake Melksham dons the green vest. Look for the lines to be broken late in the game.

  • Q1 00:00

    Late change for the Tigers. Brandon Ellis, who suffered leather poisoning last week against Melbourne, has been replaced by small forward Robin Nahas. The Bombers are as named.

  • Q1 00:00

    Welcome to Dreamtime at the 'G for the feature clash of Indigenous Round: Richmond v Essendon. The crowd is suitably massive and the expectation is enormous. Stay tuned for the opening bounce.

Watson wonderful as Bombers beat Tigers

Highlights: Richmond v Essendon The Tigers V Bombers clash in round 9

Dyson Heppell takes a mark during Essendon's win against Richmond

ESSENDON has arrested what threatened to become a mid-season slump with an impressive 29-point win over Richmond in Saturday night's Dreamtime at the 'G match.
 
In front of an electric, finals-like crowd of 84,234, Brownlow medallist Jobe Watson starred and led his team to an important 13.13 (91) to 9.8 (62) win.  
 
Essendon had to hang on without Michael Hurley in the second half, with the key forward substituted out at the main break after he rolled his left ankle late in the second quarter.
 
Hurley, who briefly returned to the ground in an attempt to play on, sat out the second half nursing the same ankle that sidelined him for the Anzac Day clash against Collingwood one month ago.


It was a significant win for the 7-2 Bombers, who had lost back-to-back matches against Geelong and the Brisbane Lions but are now firmly entrenched in the top four.
 
Richmond, which now has its spot in the top eight under threat at 5-4, was left to ponder another loss on the big stage against top opposition.
 
Watson was brilliant for the victors, finishing with 28 possessions and three goals and winning the Yiooken Award as best-on-ground..
 

David Zaharakis (18 and two) and Brent Stanton (38 and one) were also at the forefront for the Bombers, while half-back Michael Hibberd (29 and one) continued his strong season.   
 
Heath Hocking was deployed to Richmond game-breaker Brett Deledio and kept the dangerous Tiger to 17 touches and little influence. 

Coach James Hird praised his players' resilience after another trying week at the club that saw chief executive Ian Robson resign amid the ongoing investigations into the club's supplements program.  

"The players are incredible," Hird said post-match

"It doesn't matter what gets thrown at them they keep jumping up. 

"I thought tonight was as well as an Essendon team has defended for a long time. 

"It showed the team valued defence, considered it important and wanted to go and show the opposition they weren't going to let them score."    

The Bombers, who won the midfield battles convincingly, out-tackled the Tigers 60-49, despite winning more of the football, and held Richmond to its lowest score this season.   


"It was 29 points, [but] it felt like a 10-goal ballgame at half-time," he said. 

"We couldn't get the game under control at any stage.
 
"Finally we started to get some handball overlap [in the last quarter], but it was too little, too late. The game was well and truly over by that stage.
 
"We just couldn't get it up and going. We'll go and have a look at the tape and find out why."


The Bombers made their break in the second term after a careful start that saw both teams determined to hang on to possession.
 
The Bombers, who won the midfield battled convincingly, made their break in the second term after a careful start that saw both teams determined to hang on to possession.
 
Zaharakis kick-started a run of five unanswered goals, converting twice from long range, while Watson pushed forward and tormented the Tigers.  
 
The Bombers' tackling pressure was frenetic and by half time they converted their defensive efforts into scoreboard pressure, taking a 20-point lead into the main break.
 
The Tigers attempted to spark their midfield early in the third term by injecting substitute Matt White into the game for tall forward Ty Vickery, but it was to no avail.
 
With Brandon Ellis, who had 39 possessions last week, withdrawn pre-game with hamstring soreness, the Richmond midfield was already handicapped and there were few winners in the yellow and black.
 
Alex Rance and Troy Chaplin battled hard in defence, while Shaun Grigg ran all night to finish with 27 disposals.
