Did you even watch? They were competitive from Q2 onwards. You’ll have your chance next year.
I said they need to be more competitive at home, that means winning or a much closer game. Brisbane fans have said all year that they should be taken seriously, they have a high ladder position. They need to step up in big games or people's scepticism will be justified

Tigers left a lot of points out here. But the Lions have a heap of talent and a really good attitude.

Reckon we'll do them in 2 weeks. But watch out over the next few years. Brisbane are here to stay.
For awhile they seemed like they might catch up and even run away with it, but Tigers so mature, so experienced, composed and well set up. Should've sent in more chaos balls like Collingwood last year cos your defenders were gobbling it up.

Just a warning for Richmond fans.

In the big games, we always learn from our losses.

QClash 2018 is my thesis. Read on.

First game was an absolute cracker, with the Suns just getting up at a packed Gabba.

You might be thinking "Wow how is this relevant BRAB" and my answer is the next game at a packed out Metricon.

Fagan doesn't make the same mistakes twice, and Richmond will have to think of a new way to play if they think they can beat us again in a big game.
You have then met your match, because Hardwick is like that. Richmond learn from their mistakes as well.

Having said that, our midfield needs a change in style because it got destroyed. Don’t think we will win if our midfield performs like that again

Really enjoyable game. I was super sceptacle on Brisbane, but they are definitely the real deal.

They set up behind the ball as good as anyone. Very well coached.

It's going to be a massive task beating them at the Gabba.

Cracking game played in a finalesque intensity with a finalesque crowd which will hold the finals raw Brissy players in good stead.
Of the 7 'home' games at the G, this was the one that worried me the most in regards to Brisbane breaking their hoodoo against us, I don't think my heart will handle the QF up at the Gabba.
True, but it was nowhere near the pressure of last weeks Tiges/Eagles game. That was massive intense. Probably game of the year.
Still think the Tiges just done what they needed to do against the Lions after belting them early.

Good points all round, any game between the last two premiers is always gonna be a cracker and considering they gave us a bath earlier in the season it's a good one up on them.
Commentators were mentioning that this was the biggest H&A crowd for any Brisbane team regardless whether it was up at the Gabba or at the G. It's an excellent finals crowd/pressure prep for the Lions young'uns

Great game and turn out. Lions should be proud of their fantastic season, so should the Tigers. Looking forward to round 2!

Also noticed there’s a lot of respect between the two teams. Little pats on the back, jokes after tackles etc.
Saw heaps of the pats and jokes, the one that really stood out and the one BT went nuts over was Zorkos fly tackle on Baker over the boundary, would've crushed mere mortals but Baker smiled and Zorko ruffling his hair GG

Don't the Pies hold all home and away records?

Biggest home and away crowd ever involving a non-Victorian team.

Last week the Eagles jumped the Tiges by 24pts in the first qtr, the Tiges ground them down, regained the lead and won by 7

This week the Tiges jumped the Lions by 25pts in the first but they were unable to make ground and eventually lost by 27.

That's the difference.

Agree mate.

No disrespect to the Lions, they have improved out of site! I cant help thinking after seeing WC v Hawks and us today, that last weeks game took a hell of alot out of both teams. Mid way through the second we looked so flat. Again not taking anything away from the Lions. I have watched our system for a long while but we had 0 forward 50 tackles, I cant remember the last time we did that !

I actually think Brisbane have the players to match the Tigers on every line. The only player which Brisbane doesn't have is a Dustin Martin. Other than that, I think talent and skill wise, we match up very well.

Hopefully we will have better composure (There were a few unforced errors which gifted Richmond some goals in that first quarter) and we learn a few things about being smarter with our ball use going forward come the game at the gabba.

Richmond were too good today though. But Brisbane are a very good learning team. They will be better equipped for the rematch.

Edit. Actually come to think of it. Dayne Zorko is sort of our Dusty. So yeah... maybe the main thing lacking is just that experience of big games.

Come on Brisbane, please.
Richmond getting an absolute ride from the umps
Tiges getting a ride.
As much as the tigers wanna say they’ve been done dirty, how many times has Charlie deliberately been held away from the contest?? It’s actually been disgusting viewing

Yep - Brisbane have done just what they needed to do - not lose by more than 63 points. In contrast, Richmond have failed in their objective.
Do you think there will ever be a contest where Riewoldt or Lynch don't whinge for a free?
Not super upset with this loss.

We really got to find a way to support Charlie though, since the umpires have decided its ok to just hang off him all game.
Gabba home final secured. All we needed today.

Given our horrid run with injury this year (Cutler, Brown, Black, Christensen and Tom Joyce) it's been awesome to make top two.

Once we have our best team out there we'll be much more competitive. Kept it even after Richmond jumped us in the first quarter.

Really have to find a way to stop Lids next time.
Good for you. Anyone would.

What a bizarre thing to say. Richmond supporters really do say the darndest things.
Tigers supporters say the darndest things.

Proof positive that reasoned thought is optional whilst posting on bigfooty

For a big crowd it felt a little flat. Tiges ball movement was sublime at times. Lions stoppages/clearances were excellent at times

p**s off You Troll
Watching the game today i felt that Richmond did not play their best and held out brisbane to just get the win But Finals will be a different game altogether

Out: Balta
In: Nankervis

Richmond let Brisbane midfield win too much ball and Neal/Zorko/McClugguage way too much freedom.
Cotchin was held back and on restricted minutes 1st game back and Martin used sparingly in the midfield

Graham will be asigned a defensive role on Neal and Nank will be a more aggressive player both foward and in the Ruck


Result will be similar to today imo
