Tigers Break Freo’s Run

The Fremantle Dockers have suffered their first loss of the season going down to the Richmond Tigers by 27-points at Domain Stadium on Friday night. 

In a string of bad events for Fremantle, 200-gamer, Michael Johnson, was excluded from the game early after injuring his right hamstring, while the Tigers strung together goal after goal before the Dockers could get on the board. 

The fast lead set up the game for Richmond who ran away winners, 15.7(97) to 10.10(70), and broke Fremantle’s nine game winning streak.  

Dustin Martin clocked up a remarkable 34 disposals for Richmond , while Nat Fyfe managed 26 disposals and Michael Walters kicked three goals.
