Mate, last weekend our backline was missing Rance, Grimes, Houli and Short. That’s 4 of our starting 6. We can’t cover it that.I don’t know right now. Getting thrashed is not a new concept for Richmond when we are successful. Our biggest losses in 2017 were 76 and 67 and our biggest losses in 2018 were 47 and 36. The only thing is that it has happened twice by Round 3 and we didn’t really get thrashed back to back in the last two years.
Right now we have already posted 49 and 44 so far this season. Was the GWS game the last of the thrashings for the season or is it something that will happen often this year?
It depends on that in my opinion because we know that Richmond is not really a side that smashes other sides all that often. If it is the end of thrashings then I believe the top 4 is still open to us. If not, then the cusp of the 8 or missing finals is what I am expecting.
We can’t afford another comfortable loss against Port Adelaide this week though. If we do, then that is the top 4 done in my opinion.
It's more than that.I laughed when SEN said we are a 4 man team when we have a heap more than 4 injured,all premiership players.
they’d have lost to collingwood and adelaide. would have still beaten melbsIt's more than that.
It's the entire leadership group. It's half our backline and half of our starting midfield quarter.
If you take out Selwood, Dangerfield, Taylor, Stewart, Touhy, and Hawkins does anyone think Geelong would be 3-0?
