The Tigers will be playing finals in 2017!
Richmond smashed the Hawks from the get-go, running out winners by 29 points.
The Tigers are now two wins inside the Top 4.
Richmond legend Matthew Richardson said 2017 recruits Josh Caddy and Dion Prestia had their best games for the club.
Prestia told 3AW in the rooms it’s a lot different playing in Melbourne compared with the Gold Coast.
“It’s different worlds,” Prestia said.
“I’ve played in front of 80,000 a couple of times – that’s why you want to come back.”

What a match is in store at the G!
The Tiger train is rolling on, but the Hawks have hit some good form too.
With both sides desperately needing to keep banking points, this should be a corker.
