This happens almost every time. I think Brisbane will come close/beat us but then we win comfortably. It could be a mental thing for Brisbane tbh. They had plenty of opportunities but messed it up more often than not. Oh well, they are still a good team so expect them to bounce back.

They're not half as good though, so i disagree. The gap between the quality missing is significant, so if we get ours in we can expect a higher level of output from them compared to the opposition counterparts.
It's not as big a gap in quality as you think anyway as Rich and Birchall in a Richmond jumper over the last few years wouldn't be much different from Houli and Edwards. Martin is probably a better ruck than Nankervis. From there your point stands as Lester and McStay are probably in our bottom half a dozen best 22 players. Regardless having had to replace all these guys in the space of about a week and a half hasn't exactly been easy for the lions. We had a player on debut, another playing his second and another his third.

It doesn't work that way. Rich, Birchall, Lester, Martin and McStay are just as important to Brisbane as Richmond's outs are to them.
Birchall was a top player once but is 32 and has played 16 games in four years. His experience might've been handy. McInerney could hardly have been better as a stand-in ruck.

Richmond's outs are four players who've been AA squad in the past two years plus two dual premiership players.

You're not comparing apples with apples. Our blokes have been there and done it.

We had 11 players under 30 games out there tonight, but I get your argument

I still disagree, but I guess the bigger difference then is the players we bring in can cover it, where the Lions lack the depth required to really challenge the best at this stage.

He's a positives first coach which has clearly worked for him given the remarkable rise up the ladder we've had since he took over. Quit taking pot shots and have some class in victory dude. Jesus it's pathetic.
Fagan has a good rep but you need to understand he's tainted it somewhat with Richmond supporters of late.

Claimed to have held something in reserve when well beaten at the MCG. Then took a knee in front of the media to beg for Charlie Charity. And completed the trifecta with an ungraciuous QF presser where he clearly had little understanding of why Brisbane lost.

It's only fair that history has repeated.

Brisbane's goal kicking let them down in the end, Andrews had a stinker and they miss Rich and Birchall.

Richmond looked good but still had some really mystifying kicks inside 50 imo

Both sides were attacking though and hopefully will have a rematch come finals.

Can't play away from the MCG they said...tick.
Can't win interstate......tick.
Streak extends to 15....tick.
Proving the trolls wrong again after writing us off after our round 3 loss to the hawks....lovely.

Asbury, Prestia, Houli, Caddy, Nankervis & Edwards to come into the side. Wowee.
All true. Not sure all those guys would get a game now. Kids awesome!

They made a lot of mistakes that would've been punished by a more experienced side. Port has six or seven 30+ players at the Last Chance Saloon. They've realised it and will be too solid for tonight's 22.
Tigers only worry is they have to keep this form for 10 weeks. Different level ! It’s hard being favorite going into finals. Otherwise tigers too good.
