It was higher than any other grand final score, previous to that point in time. Only problem for Richmond was Carlton scored even higher, which was clever change in tactic leading into the match. Think they loaded up forward line and essentially said, catch us if you can Richmond and they could not.That is one of the great joys of our game, a score of 150 can still be not enough to win a game.
I would assume that you win 99 games out of 100 when scoring 150 points.
Jesaulenko, Nicholls and Walls kicked massive amount of goals between them.
1989 grand final the next grand final after this, that was a big attacking shoot out. Problem was in that one Geelong only had Ablett, he the 80's equivalent of Jesaulenko. Geelong needed a Nicholls, Walls etc to go with Ablett and did not have those types.
