Richmond had the accuracy when it counted, and it ended up being the difference. Brisbane experienced similar last year and hopefully we can learn from it like they did.

I will say one thing, what Tom Lynch did and Trent Cotchin did is no worse than Ben Long but we'll now experience the 'Big Club Bias' in play here. You tell me that Jones head getting dragged down like that could not "potentially cause injury" to his neck any worse than the "whiplash" to McLean.

Great season and nice to get out of the bog, wasn't liking being so close to Essendon in the "last won a final" game.

Well, the Saints are big improvers I think, Ratten a far better coach than I thought (mea culpa) Richmond looking very strong.
Saints did kick themselves out of that a bit too.

TBH can't pick next week, should be an interesting game though.

Great game saints.
Superb year.
Inspired coaching performance.
Cotchin deserves a week off for the "potential to cause injury" on Jones and Lynch deserves a week off because that knee on Howard was another campaigner act from the bloke and he has gotten away with too many this year
great season from your team bud. Don’t be too disheartened

Both should be given a week, but as you flagged and as we both already know, they will be receiving fines and be free to play.

Think that just speaks volumes of the Richmond football club, put anyone in our system and they can be successful. Whereas Carlton can have multiple top 10 draft picks year after year and they are still Carlton.
No argument from me. Let's hope it doesn't take 30 years like the tigers...,although we're almost there

If we are digging back 12 months, why not dig back to our last finals encounter, that panned out well.
Haha..more just pointing out that it doesn't depend on one game. i.e. lynch's form over 12-18 months.

Looking at one game, might be problematic. So back to my original point - glad you aren't match committee

Anyway should be a good game!

Congrats on your great season Saints. Always tough to lose, but I'm sure all fans would be proud.

Not looking forward to next week, will take a mighty effort from the Tiges to knock off Port

Apart from the the supreme awefuleness of Josh Bruce, there hasn't been a worse high profile recruit than Brad Hill this year. Been so disappointing all season and especially so tonight - looked like he wasn't keen on body contact on a few occasions.

This is a confounding comment. Brad Hill wasn't recruited for his body on body talents... he is an outside runner who has a laser-accurate kick, he provides that in spades. I thought he has been fairly decent for the Saints.
