THE Tigers signalled its arrival as a danger team in the AFL by demolishing the fancied Hawks by 62 points at the MCG on Saturday.

Richmond delighted its fans and sent a message to the league with the 21.11 (137) to 10.15 (75) belting, reversing a trend of honourable losses early this season.

With much of the match played in wet conditions, only one team had the skills and the endeavour to win.

Hawthorn's Josh Gibson told Grandstand his team-mates were extremely disappointed by their performance but said it does not stop the Hawks momentum.

"I'd say it's a bit of a speed hump,'' he said of the defeat.
