  • Q4 29:00

    GOAL MAGPIESBall starts it off by getting it out of the middle. He then bursts hard to mark inside 50. Ball's shot at goal is good enough. Magpies have enjoyed a really good night.

  • Q4 27:30

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond add more respectability onto the scoreboard late in the match with Thomas scoring from the pocket. That was a wonderful kick.

  • Q4 26:20

    BEHIND MAGPIESBeams kicks long to the square, but it clears the pack and bounces through for a behind.

    The sting has gone out of the contest late in the final quarter.

    BEHIND TIGERSRichmond surge into attack once again with Sidebottom desperately taking it over for a rushed behind.

  • Q4 19:30

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond win another centre clearance with the footy quickly going the goal square. Edwards gathers and kicks it. Surely the Tigers can not mount the most unlikely of challenges?

    GOAL TIGERSLloyd has had a debut he won't forget. He slots through his third goal with Richmond finishing off the game well.

  • Q4 16:35

    GOAL MAGPIESElliott is a very handy player in the pocket for the Magpies. Tonight he kicks his second and is the leading goal kicker in the AFL at the moment.

  • Q4 15:00

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond's mini-revival continues with Riewoldt kicking well from 40 metres out. He unleashes a low key celebration of his goal.

  • Q4 13:40

    GOAL TIGERSThe ball is in dispute and it comes out the back to Newman who snaps truly.

  • Q4 12:00

    GOAL MAGPIESFasolo has it in the middle of the park and unleashes a wonderful pass to Elliott who marks. From 45 metres out his kick is a beauty!

    BEHIND MAGPIESCloke with a chance to kick his first of the night, but he isn't kicking with confidence and misses to the left.

  • Q4 09:30

    GOAL TIGERSA bad turnover by Collingwood in defence. I guess Collingwood owe them a few tonight. Arnott pounces on it and kicks the goal with Ball left watching.

  • Q4 07:00

    There has been no fighting fury from Tigerland this evening. Tonight all of the fury has been inside the Richmond coaching box. The Tigers have been no match.

    GOAL MAGPIESA chain of handballs finishes with Swan and he signs off on the deal. Collingwood lead by 47 points.

  • Q4 03:30

    GOAL MAGPIESCollingwood reply in an instant. Cloke handballs through traffic to Pendlebury who breaks the tackle and kicks his third. Will that also be 3 votes too?

  • Q4 02:20

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond have made a positive start to the final quarter. Riewoldt is pushed out and he kicks the goal from 40 metres out.

  • Q4 01:05

    BEHIND TIGERSMartin tries one from 55 metres out, but he kicks it across the face of goal.

  • Q4 00:01

    The final quarter is underway. Will it be a matter of just how far for the Magpies or will the Tigers offer some late resistance.

  • Q3 28:25

    THREE QUARTER TIMERichmond kept up their average of one goal per quarter with Collingwood adding another three. It's all over at three quarter time with Collingwood ahead by 42 points.

  • Q3 27:25

    BEHIND MAGPIESFasolo tries one from distance, but he misses to the left.

  • Q3 26:45

    BEHIND TIGERSArnott runs inside 50 and has a ping instead of passing, but he misses to the near side.

  • Q3 26:30

    The final quarter will be a matter of just playing for pride unless the Tigers can perform a miracle.

  • Q3 25:10

    BEHIND MAGPIESSidebottom tries to sneakily snap one over his shoulder but it's knocked off his feet for a behind.

  • Q3 24:10

    Cotchin has been quiet tonight after almost lifting the Tigers to victory last week.

  • Q3 22:50

    SUBSTITUTION MAGPIESGrundy calls it a night in conditions that don't suit a man of his size. Josh Thomas is on for a piece of the action.

  • Q3 21:10

    Pendlebury has been quiet in the third quarter. Beams has certainly upped his workload.

  • Q3 19:50

    BEHIND TIGERSRiewoldt is paid the free kick for a high shepherd, but his shot at goal hits the post.

  • Q3 18:20

    BEHIND MAGPIESGrundy is held onto and kicks a behind with the resulting free kick.

    Collingwood are looking good for their 7th consecutive win against Richmond.

  • Q3 16:10

    GOAL MAGPIESA missed handball looking for Houli results in Collingwood running it down to Blair who leaps to mark. Blair kicks it well, very well!

  • Q3 14:50

    Richmond are gifting Collingwood the game with some very poor disposals resulting in turnovers.

  • Q3 13:10

    GOAL MAGPIESBeams is all alone 40 metres out. How can they leave him alone? He goes back and kicks a magnificent wet weather goal from 45 metres. Collingwood lead by 35.

  • Q3 11:50

    BEHIND TIGERSA rushed behind for the Tigers with Collingwood's defence earning their match payments.

  • Q3 10:50

    Richmond need to put a couple of quick goals together here and they are instantly back in the game. Another goal or two from Collingwood and she's all over bar the shouting.

  • Q3 09:30

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond win it out of the middle and Martin takes a good mark under pressure. He goes back and kicks a badly needed goal for his side.

  • Q3 07:55

    GOAL MAGPIESFrom the ball up, 5 metres out Pendlebury kicks it through traffic and that would hurt the Tigers big time!

  • Q3 07:10

    Beams' shorts are all black, covered in mud. They started the night in white.

  • Q3 06:40

    There is some scrappy footy being played deep inside Collingwood's attacking 50.

  • Q3 05:30

    Richmond needs to work harder with defenders looking up and having nobody to kick to.

  • Q3 04:50

    BEHIND MAGPIESYoung tries one from distance, but his misses to the left.

  • Q3 03:55

    You would not want to be washing all the player jerseys after tonight's match with some industrial strength stain remover required on most of these jumpers.

  • Q3 02:50

    Another bold understatement here. Richmond need the first goal of the third quarter otherwise this match could be all over as a contest.

  • Q3 01:30

    SUBSTITUTION TIGERSVickery is wearing the red vest with Arnott coming on to replace him.

  • Q3 01:00

    BEHIND MAGPIESA rushed behind to Collingwood with the ball going off hands.

  • Q3 00:01

    The third quarter is underway.

  • Q2 28:50

    HALFTIME - Collingwood well and truly in control here at half-time. They have kicked 7 goals to 2 in the first half to lead by 28 points in the wet conditions. Catch you after the break.

  • Q2 26:30

    A bit of an understatement here but RICHMOND BADLY NEED A GOAL! More scoreboard damage by Collingwood on this side of halftime and the Tigers will be in deep trouble.

  • Q2 25:00

    BEHIND TIGERSRichmond with some quick movement down the guts. Jackson kicks it from distance but he misses to the right.

  • Q2 24:00

    GOAL MAGPIESA terrible mistake by Grimes who spills the ball. It goes to Goldsack who handballs it to White. He seals the deal and slams it home. Who would want to be a coach?

  • Q2 22:00

    BEHIND MAGPIESGoldsack lets Richmond off the hook with his set shot from 30 metres out missing to the right. Normally a reliable kick, Goldsack could have put Collingwood in a commanding position.

  • Q2 20:20

    Richmond have had more than their fair share of the ball but are yet to make it count. They are wasting it with their disposal.

  • Q2 19:00

    The weather may be cold and wet but the yellow Sherrin is one hot item that is being handled like a hot potato. Nobody can hold it for more than 2 seconds.

  • Q2 18:00

    Richmond enjoying a good spell in their attacking 50 but they cannot convert it to scoreboard pressure.

  • Q2 16:50

    BEHIND TIGERSMartin's shot misses to the right when a goal was a badly needed commodity.

  • Q2 15:50

    Richmond with a lucky break as Martin is taken high. He will line up the shot from 30 metres out.

  • Q2 13:30

    Daniel Jackson racking up the stats with the frequency of his namesake, Michael Jackson racking up hit single after hit single back in the 1980s.

  • Q2 12:30

    BEHIND MAGPIESCloke comes out and takes a confidence boosting mark on the lead. However, his confidence has again been rocked with his shot missing to the right.

  • Q2 10:50

    GOAL TIGERSRichmond fans are asking where Sam Lloyd has been all their lives. In his first game he has shown terrific goal sense. His kick under pressure kept on bouncing through.

  • Q2 09:30

    Maxwell has been solid in defence for the Magpies. You can never write off the former skipper. He has been in very good form.

  • Q2 08:20

    Richmond find themselves under pressure in defence with Scott The Difference Pendlebury absolutely dominating proceedings.

  • Q2 06:45

    Collingwood really taking it to the Tigers and are looking to kill the game as a contest at the moment.

  • Q2 05:05

    GOAL MAGPIESMaxwell taps the ball down to Fasolo who passes delicately but brilliantly to Beams. He goes back and kicks a magnificent goal from 50 metres out! What a kick!

  • Q2 03:30

    Collingwood's lead of 22 points is more than handy in these wet conditions. They are only a downpour away from becoming almost unbeatable.

  • Q2 01:55

    GOAL MAGPIESSidebottom is allowed some freedom inside 50. He kicks it through traffic and it bounces through. Collingwood are throwing the gauntlet to the Tigers.

  • Q2 00:45

    BEHIND TIGERSRiewoldt marks on the lead 45 metres out. With an unorthodox approach to the kick, Riewoldt misses to the right.

  • Q2 00:20

  • Q1 25:30

    Collingwood have done well to work it around in defence in a very tight spot.

  • Q1 24:00

    GOAL TIGERSEdwards handballs over to Sam Lloyd who runs past and kicks a goal with his first kick in AFL footy. His teammates come from everywhere to congratulate him.

  • Q1 23:00

    Bit of a scuffle involving Martin and Grundy behind play, but they sort themselves out and get on with business.

  • Q1 22:00

    Richmond have been set the challenge again this week being the best part of four goals behind against quality opposition.

  • Q1 21:00

    BEHIND MAGPIESPendlebury is paid the free kick for holding, but he hooks it kicking for distance from 45 metres out.

  • Q1 19:05

    The conditions tonight are made for players like Luke Ball who loves it in the wet.

    Richmond wanted to get off to a fast start tonight, but they haven't managed to do it yet.

  • Q1 09:20

    GOAL MAGPIESCollingwood go the direct approach straight out of the middle. Pendlebury gets onto the end of it and wham bam thank you mam, he kicks the goal. Collingwood have started well.

    GOAL MAGPIESDane Swan is deceptively quick and does this all the time. He gathers the footy and off two steps takes everyone by surprise to kick the goal.

  • Q1 07:45

    BEHIND MAGPIESBall marks outside 50 and kicks to the lead of White who slides under the ball to mark. His shot at goal from 40 metres out fades to the left.

Steele Sidebottom celebrates a first-half goal as Collingwood won its second match of the season

COLLINGWOOD has extended its run of dominance over Richmond, beating the Tigers for the seventh straight time with a comprehensive 38-point victory at the MCG on Friday night. 
The Magpies kicked the first four goals of the game in greasy conditions and were rarely troubled thereafter, running out 16.14 (110) to 10.12 (72) winners to even their record at 2-2.
Captain Scott Pendlebury, Dayne Beams, Jesse White and Brent Macaffer were instrumental for the victors, while there were few positives for a Tigers outfit that continually butchered the ball.
The Tigers managed just a solitary goal in each of the first three quarters as they dropped to 1-3 for the season, continuing an unwanted run of outs against the Magpies. Richmond last beat Collingwood in round 19, 2007.
"Overall, it was another step forward," Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said after the match.
"They're a good football team. They haven't had a great start to the year – they're capable of being very damaging offensively.
 
"To keep them to three goals in those first three quarters was the strongest aspect of our performance."
Richmond captain Trent Cotchin could only manage 13 disposals, his lowest tally since round 16, 2010, after being well held by Pies tagger Macaffer.  
Macaffer was criticised by former Carlton coach David Parkin during the ABC's coverage for using "illegal" tactics to negate Cotchin.
After the match, Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said there were "some people out there that do give the protection" to Cotchin, but refused to be drawn on whether he was referring to his captain's teammates or the umpires.
"Don’t get me in trouble,” Hardwick said. 
“I'll leave that one to your imagination." 
The Tigers have just one victory from their first four games, and already their finals aspirations are on shaky ground; just two teams in the past five years have recovered from a 1-3 start to the season to finish in the top eight.
In 2010, Hawthorn scraped into the finals after registering just one win in the first seven rounds, while last season Carlton made the top eight after a 1-3 start, although they were gifted their spot with Essendon excluded as a result of the supplements saga. 
Former Sydney Swan Jesse White was impressive up forward for the Pies, taking seven marks and kicking three goals, but star teammate Travis Cloke continued to struggle, held goalless in his 200th game.
Cloke's quiet start to the season has generated plenty of discussion this week, and he did little to quieten his critics, Richmond defender David Astbury doing well to limit his impact. 
The Pies spearhead has kicked only two goals this season, both coming in Collingwood’s round two win over the Sydney Swans, and he finished with just three marks and two behinds against the Tigers. 
The Pies flew out of the blocks in the opening quarter, and despite the Tigers leading the inside 50s 14 to 10 in the first term, they could only manage just the one goal for the quarter through debutant Sam Lloyd.
Mature-aged recruit Lloyd was the shining light for the Tigers, kicking their only two goals for the first half and finishing the game with 22 disposals and three goals. 
The Pies led by 28 points at half time, and extended that margin to 42 points at the final change as the Tigers recorded their lowest three-quarter time score (3.10) against Collingwood since 1989. 
With the heat out of the contest, the Tigers booted seven goals in the final term to add some belated respectability to the scoreboard, spearhead Jack Riewoldt finally impacting the scoreboard with two goals. 
Nathan Brown is a chance to return to Collingwood's defence for next Saturday's clash against North Melbourne at the MCG.
The Tigers now have a six-day break before heading to Brisbane on Wednesday to face the Lions on Thursday night at the Gabba.

Trent Cotchin and the 1-3 Tigers face a tough task to return to the finals. Picture: AFL Media

  Player   Status On the move?
 
Ricky Henderson
ADELAIDE
Signed with Hawthorn

The Victorian defender played just nine games during the home and away season despite strong SANFL form and was swooped on by the Hawks in November after the Crows delisted him.

 
Nathan van Berlo
ADELAIDE
Retired

The former Crows skipper announced his retirement in September after managing just three senior games in 2016. The hard-running midfielder played 205 games in 12 seasons at Adelaide and captained the club from 2011-14.

 
Scott Thompson
ADELAIDE
Re-signed The 33-year-old midfielder had been linked to Melbourne, but in October agreed to a one-year extension with the Crows, with a pathway to coaching looming.
 
Daniel Rich
BRISBANE LIONS
Re-signed Committed himself to the Lions long-term when he re-signed for another five years in March.
 
Dennis Armfield
CARLTON
Re-signed After a strong 2016 season, the 29-year-old speedster will continue his career at Ikon Park in 2017.
 
Kade Simpson
CARLTON
Re-signed After being appointed Carlton vice-captain in 2016, the 31-year-old had an excellent season that resulted in selection in the 40-man All Australian squad. Signed a one-year deal in early September.
 
Jarryd Blair
COLLINGWOOD
Re-signed The small forward, 26, quietly re-signed with the Magpies late in 2016.
 
Nathan Brown
COLLINGWOOD
Signed with St Kilda North Melbourne made a strong play for the 27-year-old, targeting him as a ready-made replacement for outgoing veteran Michael Firrito. Despite the interest, Brown decided to join St Kilda after the Pies failed to match the Saints' offer.
 
Brent Macaffer
COLLINGWOOD
Retired The 28-year-old announced his retirement in August after playing just four senior games in 2016.
 
Steele Sidebottom
COLLINGWOOD
Re-signed Sidebottom attracted significant rival interest before re-committing to the Magpies on a five-year deal, understood to be worth around $3 million
 
Dane Swan
COLLINGWOOD
Retired

Forced to hang up his boots by the severe foot injury he suffered in the Magpies' round one loss to the Sydney Swans. The 2011 Brownlow medallist announced his retirement at a club extravaganza in August.

 
Alan Toovey
COLLINGWOOD
Retired The 29-year-old defender announced his retirement on the same day as premiership teammate Macaffer, finishing his career on 159 senior games.
 
Courtenay Dempsey
ESSENDON
Delisted The defender wanted to continue in 2017 but was delisted by the Bombers at the end of the season. Suspension and injury limited the 29-year-old to 14 senior games in 2016 and he struggled for consistency.
 
Heath Hocking
ESSENDON
Re-signed Demonstrated his loyalty to Essendon when he re-signed for 2017 in April.
 
Cale Hooker
ESSENDON
Re-signed There was no shortage of suitors for the West Australian. Fremantle led the way with a lucrative long-term offer, while it's believed North Melbourne, Melbourne, Hawthorn, Collingwood and Richmond signalled their interest in the All Australian defender to varying degrees. The Bombers also had to consider whether they were better off letting Hooker go so they could net a first-round compensation pick. Essendon had consistently said it wanted to retain Hooker and made good on its word in late April, re-signing him on a five-year deal worth about $750,000 a season.  
 
David Myers
ESSENDON
Re-signed Had been linked with West Coast, but in May became the fourth of Essendon's 12 suspended players to re-sign. The new deal ties him to the club until the end of 2019.
 
Tayte Pears
ESSENDON
Retired The 26-year-old key defender opted to pursue a career in firefighting after 70 games in the red and black. 
 
Brent Stanton
ESSENDON
Re-signed

The 30-year-old became the seventh banned Bomber to commit to the club, signing a one-year deal in August.

 
Zac Clarke
FREMANTLE
Re-signed

The ruckman earned a one-year contract extension in November after attracting interest back in his home state and from other clubs. 

 
Matt de Boer
FREMANTLE
Drafted by Greater Western Sydney De Boer was cut by Freo after playing four senior games this year. The 26-year-old's WAFL form was outstanding – he averaged more than 30 possessions a game this year for Peel. The midfielder was given an AFL lifeline when drafted by the Giants.
 
Chris Mayne
FREMANTLE
Signed with Collingwood

The pressure forward won't be at Fremantle next year, having settled on a move to Victoria. Mayne has signed a lucrative four-year deal with the Magpies.

 
Clancee Pearce
FREMANTLE
Delisted Fell out of favour in 2016, playing just four senior games, and was chopped by the Dockers after the season.
 
Aaron Sandilands
FREMANTLE
Re-signed The four-time All Australian signed a one-year contract extension in May, ensuring he will extend his stellar career at Fremantle into a 15th season. Turns 34 in December.
 
Jimmy Bartel
GEELONG
Retired The Geelong veteran activated a contract trigger to play on in 2017 but decided on retirement after a glittering career which included three premierships, a Brownlow and a North Smith Medal.
 
Corey Enright
GEELONG
Retired The evergreen defender called it quits after another stellar season in which he made his sixth All Australian team and broke the Cats' games record.
 
Tom Lonergan
GEELONG
Re-signed The 32-year-old missed just two games in the home and away season and remains an important member of the Cats' defence. The key defender will play on in 2017 after signing a new one-year deal.
 
Luke Hodge
HAWTHORN
Re-signed The Hawks captain signed on for another season in August having regained confidence in his body following his return from the knee injury he suffered against Greater Western Sydney in round six.
 
Sam Mitchell
HAWTHORN
Traded to West Coast The three-time All Australian inked another one-year contract extension in July, so it was a major surprise when the Hawks announced he would be traded to the Eagles.
 
Brendan Whitecross
HAWTHORN
Re-signed The 26-year-old utility found himself stuck in the VFL until round 17 but since earning a recall against the Sydney Swans has not looked back. Spending some time in a new role across half-back, Whitecross has fitted seamlessly back into the Hawks' best 22 and, by playing in their qualifying loss against Geelong, satisfied a trigger clause that guarantees him another season at Waverley.
 
Jack Grimes
MELBOURNE
Delisted The former captain was delisted by the Dees, ending his AFL career.
 
Neville Jetta
MELBOURNE
Re-signed The small defender re-signed with the Dees at the start of July, despite opposition interest. He is now committed to Melbourne until the end of the 2018 season.
 
Jake Spencer
MELBOURNE
Re-signed

Re-signed with the Demons in May for 2017. Although Max Gawn is well entrenched as Melbourne's No.1 ruckman, Spencer, 27, is a handy back-up whose his competitiveness is highly rated at the club.

 
Jack Watts
MELBOURNE
Re-signed The 25-year-old is enjoying a career-best season and signed a new three-year deal in July.
 
Michael Firrito
NORTH MELBOURNE
Retired North announced in August it would not offer the 32-year-old defender and fellow veterans Brent Harvey, Drew Petrie and Nick Dal Santo contracts for 2017. Firrito called it a day after North's finals campaign concluded.
 
Brent Harvey
NORTH MELBOURNE
Retired

The Roos' decision not to renew the AFL games record holder's contract came as a surprise given his form had remained strong in 2016. The 38-year-old attracted preliminary rival interest, but officially announced his retirement at the club's best and fairest night.

 
Drew Petrie
NORTH MELBOURNE
Drafted by West Coast The spearhead, 33, showed flashes of his old brilliance this season but largely struggled. West Coast has given Petrie a lifeline as a rookie.
 
Lindsay Thomas
NORTH MELBOURNE
Re-signed The 28-year-old has been consistently near the top of North's goalkicking table in recent seasons, and agreed a new two-year deal in July
 
Daniel Wells
NORTH MELBOURNE
Signed with Collingwood

The 31-year-old West Australian departs Arden St after 14 seasons, becoming a Magpie by signing a lucrative three-year deal believed to be up to $1.8 million.

 
Paul Stewart
PORT ADELAIDE
Delisted The journeyman utility was a great servant for Port but was delisted at the end of the 2016 season.
 
Ty Vickery
RICHMOND
Signed with Hawthorn After the ruckman/forward attracted significant rival interest, the Hawks swooped on the opening day of Free Agency period.
 
Sean Dempster
ST KILDA
Re-signed The 32-year-old remains a key plank of the Saints' backline and re-signed for 2017 on the eve of the free agency period. Finished equal 10th in St Kilda's best and fairest award this year and missed just three games through injury.
 
Sam Fisher
ST KILDA
Retired The 34-year-old called it a day after the NAB AFL Trade Period with Nathan Brown's arrival seemingly forcing him out.
 
Leigh Montagna
ST KILDA
Re-signed Dual All Australian Montagna was delighted to have earned a one-year contract extension. The deal ties the 32-year-old to the Saints until the end of 2017.
 
Nick Riewoldt
ST KILDA
Re-signed The club legend has averaged more than 20 possessions playing higher up the ground this season. In June he signed a new one-year deal to extend his career into a 17th season in 2017.
 
Kieren Jack
SYDNEY SWANS
Re-signed The Swans co-captain inked a new three-year deal in April, joining fellow mids Luke Parker, Dan Hannebery and Harry Cunningham in choosing to extend their careers in Sydney.
 
Ted Richards
SYDNEY SWANS
Retired The 33-year-old full-back announced in early August he would retire at the end of the 2016 season. Lingering concussion symptoms sidelined him for several weeks halfway through the year, but he returned to the NEAFL in an ultimately fruitless bid to play in one last finals series. 
 
Mitch Brown
WEST COAST
Delisted

The versatile tall was officially delisted on October 31 and failed to attract a suitor during the free agency period.

 
Sam Butler
WEST COAST
Re-signed The defender, 30, played a career-high 19 home and away games this season as he largely avoided the soft-tissue issues that have plagued him throughout his career. Butler's one-year deal was confirmed in October.
 
Patrick McGinnity
WEST COAST
Retired The 27-year-old utility retired after being cut by the Eagles post-season. He struggled for senior opportunities this year and ends his AFL career after eight seasons and 93 games.
 
Will Schofield
WEST COAST
Re-signed Signed a new three-year deal with the Eagles in March.
 
Matthew Boyd
WESTERN BULLDOGS
Re-signed An All Australian for the third time this season and now a flag-winner, the 34-year-old's outstanding form earned him a one-year contract extension.
 
Will Minson
WESTERN BULLDOGS
Delisted

The 31-year-old ruckman confirmed his career at the Whitten Oval was over at the Bulldogs' best and fairest count.

 
Dale Morris
WESTERN BULLDOGS
Re-signed The 33-year-old inked a one-year deal in August.
 
Robert Murphy
WESTERN BULLDOGS
Re-signed The Bulldogs captain considered retirement after rupturing his left anterior cruciate ligament in round three. But the 34-year-old re-signed for 2017 in early June, saying he was excited by what the Bulldogs could achieve next season.
