  • Q4 25:12

    Devon Smith enjoyed a dream start for his new club and would have Essendon fans very excited. He lead all Bombers with 26 disposals, 321 metres gained, five clearances, and five score involvements.

  • Q4 25:02

    The siren has sounded to end Q4.

  • Q4 25:57

    Jason Castagna misses his shot at goal after the siren but the result was well beyond doubt. The Tigers ability to score off turnovers, especially from the Bombers wayward forward half kicking, was the telling difference in today's match.

  • Q4 21:17

    Nick Vlastuin has 20 disposals at 90 per cent efficiency in today's match, as well as 424 metres gained and 15 uncontested possessions as well as launching that last goal after stopping a Devon Smith shot at goal on his defensive goalline.

  • Q4 16:42

    BEHINDTigers (Dan Butler)

  • Q4 16:42

    Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin have both been kept on ice for the final term with the result of the game now beyond doubt. They were both terrific today and look set to continue their strong form from 2017 into this season.

  • Q4 14:31

    Shaun McKernan has really excelled in contested situations in today's game, recording six contested marks and eleven total marks, both gamehigh numbers. No other player has taken more than two contested marks in this match.

  • Q4 06:21

    GOALTigers (Josh Caddy)

  • Q4 03:36

    One area of concern for the Richmond coaching staff will be their offensive oneon-one's, as they have won just 14 per cent of these contests in today's match. Their 2017 average of 29 per cent win rate is where they'd rather be in this category.

  • Q4 00:00

    Q4 is now underway.

  • Q3 28:17

    Richmond were playing on at every opportunity when they had a mark in the third term. 42 per cent of their marks were played on from in the quarter, which is well above their 2017 season average of 29 per cent, the fifthlowest play on rate last year.

  • Q3 28:17

    Dyson Heppell and Joe Daniher will play no further part in today's match as their workload is being managed, and Bachar Houli didn't play at all for the Tigers in the third term so he will not play any further part either.

  • Q3 28:07

    The siren has sounded to end Q3.

  • Q3 27:18

    Devon Smith has been excellent this quarter for the Bombers, sharing the lead with Trent Cotchin and Dustin Martin with eight disposals for the quarter, as well as two inside 50's, and leading all Bombers with 175 metres gained for the term.

  • Q3 25:07

    GOALTigers (Jayden Short)

  • Q3 23:04

    Forward half kicking efficiency is continuing to be the deciding factor in this match. Essendon are going at just 30 per cent by foot, compared to the Tigers who are kicking at 86 per cent efficiency in the third quarter.

  • Q3 17:13

    GOALBombers (Shaun McKernan)

  • Q3 16:45

    Essendon are trying to go back to their 2017 gameplan, with five short kicks in a row in that last possession change before turning it over in their forward 50. Essendon averaged 93 short kicks per game in 2017, the fourthbest average in the league.

  • Q3 13:42

    BEHINDTigers (Jack Higgins)

    Essendon will have to try and maximise the advantage the injury to Toby Nankervis will give them in the ruck contest in the second half. They lead hitouts 237 but are behind the Tigers in the clearances 12-17 and 2.0.12 to 0.1.1 scores from clearances.

  • Q2 25:43

    Richmond's gameplan appears to have not changed terribly much from last season. They have recorded 20 more forward half Pressure Acts than their opponents in the first half, leading to two extra goals from four more forward half Intercept Possessions.

    The siren has sounded to end Q2.

  • Q2 23:49

    A set shot and Essendon finally are able to kick a major to end the run of eight straight to Richmond. What might be causing them so much difficulty in scoring is their 31 per cent forward half kicking efficiency for the term.

JLT Highlights: Essendon v Richmond The Bombers and Tigers clash in the JLT
Jack Riewoldt takes an imperious mark during the Tigers' easy win

Jack Riewoldt takes an imperious mark during the Tigers' easy win

RICHMOND has picked up where it left off, re-establishing its high-pressure game style and thumping a disappointing Essendon in a ruthless pre-season performance in Wangaratta on Saturday.

Far from playing like a team content with its 2017 success, the premiers took to the JLT Community Series with an obvious hunger to repeat their heroics, beating the Bombers by 87 points at Norm Minns Oval.

Full match coverage and stats

Ruckman Toby Nankervis was the Tigers' only casualty, suffering concussion early in the match when his head hit the turf. He will have 11 days to recover before the team's second pre-season game, against North Melbourne.

Essendon midfielder Zach Merrett also suffered concussion early in the match, while big-name recruit Jake Stringer was cut open by an accidental elbow to the head from Alex Rance.  

The Tigers have repeatedly spoken this pre-season about maintaining a hunter's mindset, and on Saturday they walked the walk on the way to a 19.10 (124) to 5.7 (37) win.  

WATCH: Damien Hardwick's post-match media conference

The premiers maintained their trademark small forward line and rattled an Essendon defence that conceded eight consecutive goals either side of quarter-time, and another eight in the third quarter. 

The Bombers also struggled to hit targets in attack, with All Australian forward Joe Daniher going goalless and taking just two marks opposed to Alex Rance, while Stringer finished with just six touches in a disappointing outing. 

WATCH: John Worsfold's post-match media conference

Whether it was the Tigers' pressure or a lack of chemistry, the Bombers have a lot of work to do on their ball movement between now and their round one clash against Adelaide on March 23.

The Tigers, meanwhile, look cherry ripe and Damien Hardwick had the luxury of placing his midfield guns Dustin Martin (24 possessions and a goal) and Trent Cotchin (17 and one) on the bench for the fourth quarter. 

From here, the only headaches the coach will have will be of the selection kind as he ponders his best forward line and who should replace suspended defender Nathan Broad for the season opener against Carlton. 

In attack, small forward Shai Bolton made a strong case to come into the mix if Daniel Rioli is unavailable because of a foot injury, kicking three goals and creating others with his pressure and creativity.

In defence, Hardwick was pleased with Reece Conca, who finished with 15 possessions as he pushes to replace Nathan Broad in the season opener against Carlton.

'I could see confusion': Woosha plots quick fix

WHAT WE LEARNED

Richmond: The premier's trademarks remain the same. Their high-pressure style took half a quarter to kick in, but once it did the Bombers had no answers. The small forward line still suits the Tigers, with Josh Caddy, Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin all rotating heavily. Maintaining that mix looks a better option right now than playing the inexperienced Mabior Chol as a second tall forward. Bolton is the frontrunner for Rioli's round one spot, while Conca has one hand on Broad's position.

Essendon: The Bombers had the weaker line-up of the two and will be strengthened by the returns of Michael Hurley, Cale Hooker, Tom Bellchambers and Orazio Fantasia in their next pre-season game. Still, the ease with which they were pushed aside at the contest and their inability to deal with the Tigers' pressure was worrying. It was most evident when trying to run the ball from defence, with John Worsfold's men unable to string clean chains of possession together. Darcy Parish would have learned a lot trailing Martin and Cotchin, while Andrew McGrath spent time as an inside midfielder. Shaun McKernan played exclusively as a tall forward and kicked on from his impressive AFLX performances.

NEW FACES

Richmond: Prized recruit Jack Higgins had a quiet game, finishing with five possessions, but he showed his smarts with a clever kick to Jack Riewoldt's advantage in the second quarter. Second-year tall defender Ryan Garthwaite was strong in the air and showcased his ability to play on both tall and small opponents.

Essendon: Former Gold Coast defender Adam Saad was explosive early, kicking a 60m running goal and giving the Bombers some life off half-back. He faded thereafter and finished with 15 possessions. Devon Smith was the most consistent of the new recruits, leading the Bombers with 26 possessions and winning five clearances in a midfield role. Jake Stringer was rattled by a stray elbow to the head early, which cut his head open. The former Bulldog played on but was not right, finishing with six possessions from a half. Rookie Sam Draper spent time in the ruck and was competitive. 

NEXT UP: The Tigers will back up in 11 days, taking on North Melbourne in a Wednesday night clash at Ikon Park. Essendon has a 14-day break before facing Geelong at Central Reserve in Colac.
