Round 21: Highlights Watch the highlights from the Round 21 match against Geelong.

Richmond's losing streak at the hands of Geelong has extended to 13 following a 14-point loss to the Cats at Simonds Stadium on Saturday.

Harry Taylor played forward for the hosts, finishing with four goals and was best on ground as they won 11.14 (80) to 9.12 (66) to move ahead of the Tigers into third place on the ladder.

The Tigers set up a grandstand finish, launching a brave second-half comeback to draw within a goal early in the last term, having kept the Cats goalless for the third quarter.

The Cats had dominated the first half of the third quarter but a brain fade from big ruckman Rhys Stanley caused a turnover that gifted Richmond a goal and led to the Tigers kicking three unanswered goals and regain momentum.  

With pressure building, a piece of magic midway through the last quarter was required from Steve Motlop to steady the Cats.

Motlop, returning from injury, kicked a banana goal from nearly straight in front using the outside of his foot.

When Daniel Menzel soccered through a goal minutes later the Cats had snuffed out the Tigers fightback.

The Tigers had lost Josh Caddy to a hamstring before quarter-time after the ex-Cat kicked the first goal of the game against his old club.

Richmond used Dustin Martin forward for much of the game and the Brownlow Medal favourite didn't have his usual influence.

Geelong's Patrick Dangerfield was outstanding in the middle but he had good support from ruckman Zac Smith who dominated the ball in the air.

Led by Lachie Henderson and Zach Tuohy, the Cats' defence was stingy with the old firm Andrew Mackie and Tom Lonergan proving hard to pass.
