Lynch kicks fourth, Lewis his second
Tom Lynch has kicked his fourth goal after pulling in a contested mark.
Richmond’s pressure defence is locking the ball in their front half of the ground and the Hawks have no answers for it so far.

If this continues, Lynch could have a bag of goals as the Tigers are repeatedly creating scoring chances.
Mitch Lewis has responded for the Hawks kicking his second goal after the restart.
Tigers 73, Hawks 60 with 10 mins to go in Q3.
Lynch goals for Tigers
Tom Lynch has snapped his third goal and extended Richmond’s lead at the start of this third term.
Lynch outsmarted his man Tom Sicily and ran from behind the goals to the front of the pack where he marked on the goal line and snapped the goal.

According to Fox Footy, Lynch has kicked 16 goals in the last three games including this one.
Tigers 65, Hawks 54 with 15 mins to go in Q3.
HT: Port Adelaide 8.8 (56) to North Melbourne 2.7 (25)
The Power are still well ahead of the Kangaroos at half time but faced a much tougher opposition that term.

Kangaroos improving against Power
The Kangaroos have cut Port Adelaide’s lead to under five goals in the second term after a tidy goal from Tarryn Thomas who converted a set-shot from a tight angle.
The Power are still well in front leading by 26 points but the Kangaroos are looking better in the contests and contested areas.

HT: Richmond 9.5 (59) to Hawthorn 8.5 (53)
This is a sensational contest at the MCG with the Tigers taking a one-goal lead into the second half after bolting back into the match in the second term behind plenty of pressure plays led by Shai Bolton.
The Hawks are in the wars with Jack Gunston out with an ankle injury and Jack Scrimshaw needing treatment on a shoulder/AC joint issue as the half-time siren sounded.

Scrimshaw looked in some discomfort although sometimes those kind of injuries can be painful for a few minutes and then come good.
The Tigers have looked great when pressuring the ball in their own forward line while the Hawks have shone when the chance has emerged for them to push forward and set up their forwards.
Lynch sets up Soldo
Tom Lynch has shown elite vision under pressure coming up with the ball in the forward pocket and seeing Ivan Soldo alone.
Lynch centrered the ball and Soldo kicked the goal from point-blank range.
Tigers 59, Hawks 53 with a minute left in Q2.
Bolton makes Hawks pay
Sam Frost dropped a stab-kick at the top of the goal-square and the ball fell to Shai Bolton who was onto the ball in a flash finding room to kick and then snapping a goal.
This is a great contest.
Tigers 53, Hawks 53 with two mins left in Q2.
QT: Port Adelaide 6.5 (41) to North Melbourne 1.3 (9)
Port Adelaide are completely in control of proceedings against the Kangaroos in Hobart this afternoon taking a five-goal lead into quarter-time.
This was to be expected although the Kangaroos would have wanted to keep it close for a longer period of time than just the opening minutes.
Todd Marshall has kicked two goals for the Power, so has Mitch Georgiades while Nick Larkey has the sole goal for the Roos.

Lewis goals for Hawks
Hawks forward Mitch Lewis is back in the side today after a hamstring injury and has taken a mark on the lead and gone back to kick his first goal of the day.
Lewis was the Hawks’ most dangerous forward target in the opening weeks of the season until he went down injured, the Hawks need him now.
Dylan Moore is back on the ground for the Hawks after going to the rooms earlier this quarter.
Hawks 52, Tigers 47 with seven mins to go in Q2.
Martin goals for Tigers, Gunston out for Hawks
As expected, Jack Gunston has been subbed out of the game with Connor MacDonald now into the game after Gunston’s ankle injury.
Just as that change was being made, Dustin Martin ran onto the ball in the Tigers’ forward line and snapped the goal.
The Tigers are in front and have the momentum. Hawthorn has a big job ahead of them.
Tigers 47, Hawks 46 with eight mins to go in Q2.
