-------------------------------------------------------------------------

RICHMOND has narrowly lost its opening game of the NAB Cup against North Melbourne, going down by three points at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

At times during the game, the Tigers looked to have the Kangaroos' measure, jumping out to a 12-point lead early in the game and, again, establishing a two-goal lead when they kicked two of the first three goals of the second half, through Brad Miller and Robin Nahas.

But North, who had started the match in scrappy fashion, started to win the ball at the stoppages with Ben Cunnington and Jack Ziebell influential.

The Tigers led for most of the game but when North's Robbie Tarrant kicked a goal in the final stages of the last half, the Roos took the lead and would hold onto it until the final siren.

The night was costly for North with midfielder Leigh Adams appearing to go off with concussion after copping a heavy knock at the 10-minute mark of the first quarter from Tiger Reece Conca. Ten minutes later, Nathan Grima limped off with a left knee injury following a collison. Reports on Triple M radio suggested he might have strained his medial ligament.

The Tigers led by two points at half-time after dominating the early part of the game.

With Reece Conca and Dustin Martin giving Richmond drive in the middle of the ground, the Tigers were moving the ball fluently. North struggled with its disposal early on, with a poor Brent Harvey pass intercepted by Martin, who kicked truly from his subsequent set shot from 40m.

Jake King got the Tigers and the game's second goal when he found space in the Tigers’ forward 50 to mark and converted from 35m, to put Richmond 12 points up.

Adams' exit from the ground seemed to spark the Kangaroos, who hit back with the next three goals to take the lead by four points at the 18-minute mark.

But the Tigers hit back through Tom Derickx and they snatched the lead at half-time.

For the Tigers, Adelaide Crows recruit Ivan Maric performed well in the ruck against North’s Todd Goldstein, while 2011 draftee Brett O’Hanlon also showed some promising signs.

------------------------------------------------------

A GOAL to Matthew White with less than two minutes remaining has given Richmond an upset three-point win over Hawthorn in the final game of the season-opening NAB Cup triple-header at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

Damien Hardwick's men looked gone when Shane Savage kicked a goal to give the Hawks a 10-point lead late in the second half, but Daniel Jackson and then White replied to steal the 6.4 (40) to 5.7 (37) victory.

Both teams took under-strength line-ups into their final hit-out of the night.

The Tigers' 'outs' from game one included Dustin Martin, Jack Riewoldt, Trent Cotchin and skipper Chris Newman, with the Hawks leaving Luke Hodge, Shaun Burgoyne, Grant Birchall and Brent Guerra on the sidelines.

In those stars' absence, Richmond got great service from Jeromey Webberley and Nathan Foley, with Jake King and Jackson booting two goals apiece.

Lance Franklin was Hawthorn's best, his three second-half goals threatening to take the match away from the Tigers after they led by four points at half-time.

Sam Mitchell was busy through the midfield, and Matt Suckling and Ben Stratton both used the ball well from defence.

Rookie Addam Maric, who crossed to Punt Rd from Melbourne in the off-season, stood out among the Tigers' new faces in a busy display.

Draftee Brandon Ellis collected five disposals in a promising showing.

Hawthorn's only draftee in the match, Brad Hill, was the substitute until the dying stages of the game.

Recruit Jack Gunston showed a clean set of hands, taking five marks.

The result meant all three teams in the tri-series finished the night with one win and one loss, after the Tigers lost to North Melbourne in game one and Hawthorn beat the Kangaroos in game two.

Tigers lift intensity against Hawks
Michael Gleeson
The Age
February 18, 2012

RICHMOND 0.2.3 0.6.4 (40)
HAWTHORN 0.1.5 0.5.7 (37)

GOALS - Richmond: Jackson 2, King 2, Miller, White. Hawthorn: Franklin 3, Shiels, Savage.
BEST - Richmond: King, Foley, Jackson, Webberley. Hawthorn: Mitchell, Franklin, Suckling, Gunston.
UMPIRES: Stevic, Jeffery, H Ryan.


THE Tigers were the equal of the Hawks for pressure at the ball and the man, which kept them in the contest. Pressure of this type has not ordinarily been the Tigers' strength.

They played a press in both games but against North were more easily scored against when the ball got over the back.

Against Hawthorn they looked tighter.

PRESSURE ON

The arrival of Ivan Maric as a combative ruck has put the pressure on Angus Graham.

Maric rested in the second game so Graham rucked and looked good early although he still did some silly things - unopposed for a mark in defence, he jumped under the ball, anticipating contact.

NEWBIES

The other Maric to arrive at Punt Road - Addam from Melbourne - slotted into the forward line and offered the sort of bite and intensity he was brought in for. In a foot race with four others with one minute to go, he showed good pace to get their first. Another rookie, Brandon Ellis, on a half-back flank, is a readymade player with good aggression at the contest and did not look daunted. Dylan Grimes, coming off the bad hammy that ruined his 2011, did a bit after a promising start.

CANDLE IN THE WIND

Athletic raw ruck Todd Elton showed great maturity with a clever tap across to Matt White to snap the goal that put the Tigers in front late.

THE MATCH

Hawthorn fans who were thrilled by Lance Franklin taking overhead marks and slotting three goals, Sam Mitchell's standard pep at the stoppages and the promising work of recruit Jack Gunston would not be overly perturbed by the Tigers' rally to pinch the points. Nathan Foley, Shane Tuck and Daniel Jackson all made up for sitting out the opening game, Jake King was a pesky presence in front of goal, and Todd Elton's handball into Matt White's path ultimately won it for the Tigers, whose theme song boomed around the stadium, never mind what the calendar says.
