RICHMOND held on in the last few minutes for a three-point win over Port Adelaide in their AFL pre-season match at Alice Springs.
Tyrone Vickery kicked five goals for the Tigers in the second half as they outlasted the Power 14.8 (92) to 13.11 (89).
There was never more than three or four goals between the two sides through the match, played in mild conditions.
Port kicked the last goal with about three minutes left and the Tigers then defended grimly to hold them out.
Richmond midfield star Trent Cotchin was among the best in his first pre-season game and Robin Nahas also impressed.
Justin Westhoff kicked four goals for the Power and Daniel Motlop contributed three, while defenders Troy Chaplin and Alipate Carlile had solid games at the other end of the ground.
Port led by 16 points eight minutes into the last term but, after some interchange rotations, they were found wanting through the midfield and Richmond took control.
“Our backs held up fairly well under pressure, but we were beaten in the midfield,” said Port football manager Peter Rohde.
“We were overrun in the midfield towards the end of the last term.
“But overall, across four quarters, our intensity was a lot better.”
