    BEHIND BOMBERSDempsey kicks to Heppell who marks 48 metres out. He plays on but his kick misses to the right.

  • Q4 17:00

    GOAL BOMBERSKavanagh who came on in the final quarter instructs Melksham to run to space and kicks to him. Melksham runs around and snaps it through. What a game!

  • Q4 14:25

    GOAL TIGERSRiewoldt is outnumbered two to one and somehow ends up with the ball. He turns and snaps it around his body for a crucial goal. That makes up for the earlier miss.

  • Q4 13:00

    BEHIND TIGERSRiewoldt marks 35 metres out but his kick from someone who is paid to kick crunch goals is extremely disappointing.

  • Q4 11:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSHurley marks strongly 40 metres out but his shot for goal is across the face.

  • Q4 10:30

    After a slow start to the final quarter Essendon are beginning to throw down the challenge.

    Essendon are desperately trying to push forward as they seek back to back goals.

  • Q4 06:00

    GOAL BOMBERSThe freshly announced retiree, Jason Winderlich, does brilliantly to gather the ball and snap it through delightfully. This game ain't over yet ladies and gents.

  • Q4 05:30

    The challenge is over to you Essendon. It's game on and the game needs to come from Essendon. Richmond know the game and they're going to play it.

    THREE QUARTER TIMEThis game continues to get better and it's Richmond who lead by 7 points at three quarter time.

  • Q3 26:50

    Dempsey with a magnificent tackle to stop Edwards in his tracks. That was something like you would see in the WWE bouncing off the ropes!

  • Q3 23:50

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond run it down the other end and enter Dustin Martin. He spins on a 5 cent coin and kicks a beauty from the pocket! Merrett's miss proves to be costly.

  • Q3 22:50

    Zach Merrett marks 40 metres out with little angle to negotiate, however, he sends his kick out on the full. Terrible kick.

  • Q3 20:40

    Zaharakis with a long range shot at goal for Essendon but he misses away to the right and that is out on the full.

  • Q3 18:30

    BEHIND TIGERSMartin marks getting down low just inside the 50 metre arc. His kick has the distance but it doesn't have the accuracy on this occasion.

  • Q3 17:30

    SUBSTITUTION TIGERSMatt Thomas is out and replaced by Vlastuin.

  • Q3 15:50

    BEHIND TIGERSRiewoldt with a snap from the pocket, but he misses to the near side. The scores are all square and this game is a cracker. That is official ladies and gents.

  • Q3 13:30

    GOAL TIGERSGordon is taken out of the marking contest by Dempsey and an important kick is coming up. He goes back and sends the kick on its way. It's magnificent!

  • Q3 12:15

  • Q3 11:20

    BEHIND BOMBERSA rushed behind for Essendon with the ball bouncing on the line before being rushed through.

  • Q3 09:40

    Richmond not moving the ball as hard and fast in this third quarter as they did in the second with the Bombers getting on top.

  • Q3 07:20

    BEHIND TIGERSGrigg is under pressure as he kicks for goal and his kick also hits the post. There must be some kind of magnetic attraction between football and post.

  • Q3 06:15

    There have been quite a few smothered kicks in this third quarter.

  • Q3 04:35

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle is tackled as he kicks for goal from point blank range and his kick dribbles into the goal post.

  • Q3 00:01

    The third quarter is underway.

  • Q2 31:15

    HALF TIMEOne of the best halves of footy in 2014 comes to an end with the Tigers having their whiskers in front. It's a six point lead to Richmond at half-time.

  • Q2 31:10

    GOAL TIGERSCotchin is held in the marking contest by Baguley and is paid the free kick just inside the siren. Cotchin walks in after the siren and kicks the goal that puts Richmond in front.

  • Q2 28:50

    BEHIND TIGERSA rushed behind to Richmond levels the scores in the shadows of half-time.

  • Q2 27:50

    BEHIND BOMBERSGoddard hurries the kick which looks good off the boot, but it's only through for a minor score.

  • Q2 26:45

    GOAL BOMBERSHeppell shows some guts and determination to get to the ball and kick it to Chapman who marks. Chapman kicks a beauty from 45 metres out!

  • Q2 24:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle marks as he seeks to make amends for his indiscretions. He goes back and lines it up. He looks displeased with his kick missing badly.

  • Q2 22:15

    GOAL TIGERSSheer stupidity by Carlisle to concede successive fifty metre penalties to Bachar Houli. That takes him all the way to 20 metres out from where he kicks the goal.

  • Q2 19:00

    BEHIND TIGERSMaric runs in to the open goal and looks to have kicked the goal, but Heppell's diving effort have saved a certain goal.

  • Q2 17:30

    Scores are level with Richmond getting on top in this second quarter. They have kicked four goals and are getting on top in the middle.

  • Q2 15:30

    GOAL TIGERSThe ball is kicked deep inside Richmond's attacking 50. Deledio runs onto it and captures the footy right in the nick of time. He just manages to kick it through in the field of play.

  • Q2 13:10

    GOAL TIGERSRiewoldt comes out on the lead and takes the mark. He is a reliable set shot kick for goal and slots through his 44th set shot goal for the season.

  • Q2 10:30

    GOAL BOMBERSGoddard is pushed out in the marking contest by Bachelor and the umpire pays the free kick. It did seem a little soft and Goddard made the most of it. He also kicks the goal.

  • Q2 08:30

    This is one hot game of footy at the moment and if this current pace is maintained we will be talking about this match all weekend.

  • Q2 06:30

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond with some terrific ball movement through the middle work a 45 degree pass to Griffiths who marks. From some distance if you don't mind Griffiths kicks it.

  • Q2 04:25

    GOAL BOMBERSDell'Olio runs inside 50 and elects to do the team thing by chipping it over to Melksham. Looking a little nervy in front of goal Melksham slots it through.

  • Q2 03:00

    Richmond have started the second quarter in a very positive fashion. It would be interesting to see what Hardwick said at quarter time.

  • Q2 00:40

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond win the clearance and kicks to the hot spot. Edwards takes control of the footy and handballs outside to Ellis who runs in to kick the goal.

  • Q2 00:01

    The second quarter is underway.

  • Q1 28:35

    QUARTER TIMEEssendon lead by 12 points at quarter time after a very entertaining first quarter.

  • Q1 27:00

    Anthony Miles has his own footy out there. Or at least it seems like it because he has disposed of it 14 times and doesn't look like letting up.

  • Q1 25:20

    BEHIND TIGERSMartin handballs blindly to Edwards who snaps for goal. It looks good off the boot but goes too far to the left.

  • Q1 22:50

    GOAL BOMBERSCarlisle keeps Rance out of the contest allowing Dell'Olio to get to it first and take the mark. From the pocket Dell'Olio makes an impact and kicks the goal.

  • Q1 21:00

    There is plenty of passion and feeling in the crowd tonight with the atmosphere as great as having a beer with Duncan who of course is everyone's mate.

  • Q1 19:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSMelksham is paid the free kick 25 metres out directly in front but his kick for goal is terrible. He drags it and misses badly.

  • Q1 17:00

    Richmond are winning the clearances at the moment, leading 7 to 4.

  • Q1 15:40

    BEHIND BOMBERSCarlisle marks just inside 50 but his kick misses badly to the left.

  • Q1 15:00

    Essendon are in their grey strip with the red sash that has a black outline. Not really the Essendon we are all familiar with.

  • Q1 13:20

    BEHIND TIGERSHurley punches through Miles' kick for a rushed behind.

  • Q1 10:55

    It has been a very good start to this match and you can tell that these two teams do not like each other.

  • Q1 08:40

    GOAL BOMBERSCarlisle is sandwiched in between two defenders but still takes a good contested mark. His shot for goal from 20 metres out is straight through.

  • Q1 06:40

    A reasonably sized crowd is in attendance tonight given the cold conditions and what's at stake tonight. If Essendon win they consolidate in the 8 and it would spell the end of Richmond's season.

  • Q1 04:25

    GOAL BOMBERSChapman goes on a long run from defence into the forward pocket and takes the mark. From 20 metres out his kick is high, but more importantly it's straight.

  • Q1 03:30

    Paul Chapman has been involved in everything early tonight.

  • Q1 01:40

    GOAL TIGERSGriffiths outmarks Hurley and kicks it down the line to Deledio who marks 40 metres out. He goes back and slots it through for the first goal of the night.

  • Q1 00:01

    We are off and underway at the MCG.

Tigers stay alive with nailbiting win over Dons

AFL 2014 Rd 20 - Richmond v Essendon

Tiger Brandon Ellis and Bomber Heath Hocking collide on Saturday night

RICHMOND'S faint finals pulse is a little stronger after a stirring 18-point victory over Essendon in a see-sawing contest at the MCG on Friday night.
 
The Tigers' 14.11 (95) to 11.11 (77) win is their sixth straight and has them sitting just a game outside the top eight. 

Meanwhile, the Bombers, who are now just one game clear of the Tigers, could fall out of the eight by the end of round 20 depending on the results in North Melbourne, Collingwood, Gold Coast and Adelaide's games.

 
The Tigers started the game slowly, turning the ball over time and time again in the first term to enable the Bombers to go into quarter-time 12 points up.
 
But Richmond started to take advantage of their dominance at stoppages in the second term, lifting their pressure around the ground to deny Essendon the short options they had used so effectively in the first term.
 
The Tigers piled on six goals to Essendon's three in the second term to take a six-point lead into half-time, setting up a classic contest in the second half.
 
The momentum swung again at the start of the third term, when Essendon rediscovered its run to pile on the first three goals of the second half to grab an eight-point lead.

 
But the Tigers kicked the next four goals, taking a handy 18-point lead at the three-minute mark of the final term when Nathan Gordon converted with a kick that sliced through from 30m out.
 
The Bombers were far from done, kicking three of the next four goals and closing to within five points at the 20-minute mark when Dyson Heppell kicked a behind.
 
However when Shane Edwards kicked a goal three minutes later to put the Tigers 12 points up, Richmond was able to hold on despite some tense moments.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick said he was really proud of his team's effort.

 
"They were hard and tough and Essendon challenged us at the end there and we managed to bounce back, which was really impressive from our guys," Hardwick said.
 
"Defensively we were a lot better after quarter-time and we managed to keep the score down, but they control and move the ball so well and we probably defended a little bit much from the back half.
 
"I think we had nine forward-half turnovers, which is well below our season average, so we'll look at some things and see if we can do some things better moving forward."
 
A frustrated Essendon coach Mark Thompson said he didn't have any answers for his team's costly loss.
 
"It's a pretty disappointing night for the football club," Thompson said.

 
"It's hard to be positive when you lose a game to Richmond, who wanted to win more than us to play finals.
 
"In reality we played good football in bits and pieces. The first quarter was OK, towards the end of the first quarter we went away from how we want to play and then you could just see it coming.
 
"And we were too easy to play against, clearly."
 
Former Giant Anthony Miles continued his recent run of good form for the Tigers, finishing with 28 possessions and a game-high seven clearances.
 
Brandon Ellis (28 possessions) was a key playmaker for the Tigers all night, Edwards (19 possessions and two goals) was lively up forward and in the midfield, while Troy Chaplin did an outstanding job in defence on Joe Daniher.
 
Alex Rance had an entertaining duel with Bomber Jake Carlisle. Carlisle's height troubled the Tiger full-back at times but he battled hard to keep the Bomber to two goals.
 
Dyson Heppell and David Zaharakis (both 32 possessions) were outstanding for the Bombers around the ground, while full-back Cale Hooker continued his outstanding 2014 form keeping Jack Riewoldt to two goals.
