West Coast have taken a 7-point lead at quarter-time after a low scoring opening term, where Richmond only managed one goal.
The game’s pace is yet to ramp up, and the Eagles capitalised on this by enjoying a decent amount of unrestricted movement around the ground. They had 22 more uncontested possessions than the Tigers.
Richmond won the clearances and hit-outs, but struggled to find space or make any decent runs.
If they are going to challenge this next quarter, they’ll need to create space and opportunities to attack.
West Coast lead Richmond 2.3 (15) to 1.2 (8).
