Richmond will travel to Sydney to take on the Swans for the second time this season on Saturday afternoon. Across the past 10 years, the Tigers have beaten Sydney just six times and the majority of these have been at the MCG. The previous meeting between these two clubs saw Richmond infamously win by one point after-the-siren, so the Tigers will be looking to replicate this on the Swans home deck this time around.  

Throughout the past 10 years, a host of Tigers have performed really well against the Swans. Below are some present Tigers that make up the top five best performers against Sydney...

1. BRETT DELEDIO: The Tigers’ Vice-Captain has finished within the leading disposals against Sydney in four matches in the past 10 years. His best game against the Swans came in Round 8, 2016 – a one point win at the MCG. He netted 34 disposals and eight marks.
