Richmond is tonight celebrating its seventh win in a row - for the first time since 1995 -and is knocking on the door of the top eight after a gutsy 10-point win over Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

The Tigers trailed by six points at the 15-minute mark of the final term but conjured two late goals through Nathan Gordon and Dustin Martin to win 10.19 (79) to 9.15 (69).

Not for the first time this round the umpires played their part with a score review resulting in Rory Sloane's third-quarter goal being reversed after the third-umpire deemed the ball hit the post (despite commentators privy to the same footage adamant the vision was inconclusive).

Even in the dying minutes there was controversy with Martin's final goal coming after his nudge in the back went unwhistled.

The win is Richmond's 10th (after a 3-7 start) and 104.5 per cent.

Eighth-placed Adelaide, also 10 wins, has 111.2 per cent.

At the MCG, the Lions have smashed an injury-depleted Collingwood by 67 points.

The Lions led at every change to run away 18.15 (123) to 8.8 (56) victors.

The Pies went into the match with a glimmer of hope of making the finals. That has now been close to extinguished.

They lost skipper Scott Pendlebury in the warm-up - he was replaced by Tony Armstrong who played a full game in the reserves earlier.

Then during the game they dropped like flies: first Ben Reid in the first five minutes, then Cloke hurt his ankle.

Finally, Beams limped off in the third term with a leg injury.

"It was one of the worst nights I've been involved in," midfielder Dane Swan told Fox Footy after the game.

"We've been horrendous the last few weeks so there will be some soul-searching.

"Gary Ablett and Wayne Carey wouldn't have made a difference to us tonight."

At the SCG, Josh Kennedy's Brownlow hopes have been dealt a blow with the ball magnet suffering a hamstring injury that led to him being subbed out before quarter-time.

Coach John Longmire is hopeful he will miss just one final at the most.

In better news for the Swans, Buddy Franklin booted nine goals in the 71-point win over the Saints to overtake Jarryd Roughead in the Coleman medal race.

In a tight one on the Gold Coast, the Suns were brave in the wet but went down by nine points to the Power.

And at Etihad Stadium the Eagles were unlucky to be overrun by the Bombers to the tune of three points.
