Matthew Richardson previews Saturday evening's Round 11 clash against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
1. Dixon Double Team
Port Adelaide took twenty-one contested marks in their Round 10 win over the Western Bulldogs. Charlie Dixon took five of those. Dixon averages four contested marks a game with half of those inside 50. Richmond’s defence will look to quell Dixon’s aerial ability and minimise his ability to leap at the ball.

2. Short break
With a condensed fixture and a five-day break into an away game, Richmond will look to manage the health of its playing list. Players that have come back from injuries this season like Trent Cotchin may be managed due to the shortened break.
3. The Tiger Twin Towers
Tiger Twin Towers, Jack Riewoldt and Tom Lynch, combined for seven goals in the Round 10 win over Brisbane. With improved efficiency and connection inside 50, the Tiger duo are working into the season and are beginning to hit peak form. Add in an in-form Dustin Martin to that mix and it becomes hard for opposition defences to match up accordingly.
