It won't be surprising if we're off to Freo in the early rounds as they've been given 4 of their first 6 games at home at the new Perth stadium.

Freo have also been given an extra home game by the AFL against the Suns due to the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. So much for the AFL creating a fairer draw :huh3

According to Kane Cornes (yeah , I know, not the most reliable source) Adelaide versus Melbourne, that is Lever returning to face his former teammates for the first time, has been scheduled for Alice Springs.

Confirmed:

Prior to the Round 5 Anzac Eve game against Melbourne (away), we have a 11-day break. So that means our Round 4 match is on a Friday night.

After the Anzac Eve game, we play 'away' to Collingwood at the MCG on the following Sunday at 3:20pm.

Great that our first game of the season is a home game.

I understand from reading on here that Carlton do not share the gate takings with us.

So sweet that we get to unfurl our flag at the MCG first up in a huge drawing game, get to keep the gate takings and........

win by 10 goals.

Confirmed:

We play Adelaide, Geelong, Essendon, St Kilda and Collingwood twice next year.

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

... premier Richmond has dodged a nightmare fixture with only two double-up games against top-six teams Adelaide and Geelong.

Your club's 2018 fixture wish list

Dinny Navaratnam
afl.com.au
30 October 2017


THE AFL will reveal the 2018 home and away fixture on Tuesday October 31 at 9.30am AEDT.

We look at the matches your club hopes to get.

RICHMOND

What they'll want: After an extraordinary effort to win the flag, the Tigers' requests should have a bit more weight and they will likely have multiple Friday night appearaces, after none this year. They want all their home games at the MCG, rather than having one at Etihad Stadium, no back-to-back travel and to again have their three marquee games: the season opener against Carlton, Dreamtime at the G against Essendon and the Anzac Day Eve game against Melbourne, which has been confirmed by AFL.com.au.

The game the fans will be looking for: Sydney kicked eight of the last nine goals in round 13 to pinch a nine-point victory, so Richmond will want to avenge that performance.
