We’re sorry, this service is currently unavailable. Please try again later.
Mabior Chol may have been hiding in the back, but he gave Richmond the first goal in the second term.
There was a massive pack in the Tigers forward 50 but Chol chose to stay down and the ball came out from behind, allowing Chol to dribble a goal. It was his first layout today …
Taylor Walker has now scored his third goal of the game! What a wonderful pressure from the pressure pocket.
Scores: Adelaide 7.3 (45) at Richmond 5.1 (31)
Taylor Walker has two goals, 10 assignments and five marks in the first quarter.
Bachar Houli and Jayden Short amassed nine touches each in defense.
The clearing tally is troubling for the Tigers. The Crows have won 13-7 clearances so far.
The count inside the 50 is also overwhelming – 18-9 in favor of the Ravens
Riley Thilthorpe scored the Crows’ sixth goal of the quarterback.
The Crows managed to switch from defense-50 to their forward-50 and Thilthorpe was all alone 25 yards straight ahead.
Now is QT: Crows leads 6.3 (39) to 3.1 (19).
Jack Riewoldt eased the pressure for the Tigers just before the quarter with a brilliant set-shot from the border.
The chain of play started with a 50-defensive interception mark by Bachar Houli, and the Tigers switched to take him on. Riewoldt received a decision holding the man.
The Tigers’ goal sees the scores 5.3 (33) to 3.1 (19).
The Tigers lead the disposition tally but have a high number of undisputed goods and more brands.
The Crows, however, seem to be playing a lot more directly. They had over 50 on the inside and they won the clearances, and they also took four contested runs in the first quarter.
For now, the Crows are leading 33-13.
The Crows took a four-goal lead before Shai Bolton secured a well-deserved goal for the Tigers.
It is a very successful business. The Ravens lead 5.1 (31) to 2.1 (13) over the Tigers.
They have the jump now, Adelaide.
Tex grabs him in the ruck and pushes him through.
The tigers must light up.
Q1 RICH 7 ADL 25
And Richmond only one so far, with 10 minutes left in Q1.
The third Crows passed ruckman Reilly O’Brien at point blank range on a saved shot.
He wins a free kick because he was barred from joining a scoring contest by Kamdyn McIntosh.
Q1 RICH 19 ADL 7
They now have two goals, the second going through Taylor Walker. He scores and hits a fixed shot for his 30th goal of the season.
Toby Nankervis is also back on the pitch after that first fear of a knee injury.
Q1 RICH 6 ADEL 13
Darcy Fogarty takes a nice strong mark and converts the fixed shot. Jumped high and was strong in the air.
And he punted from the tight angle.
