Roys always my second team, hope this becomes a huge fixture in the next couple of years.

Not sure if they ran out of puff or geared down deliberately in the last q. I think we have the lions now but they will go past us within 2 years.

Felt like we needed that first quarter to acclimatise us to the big stage and a packed MCG. At quarter time was worried Richmond would hit the 11 goal win needed to overtake us. After that we looked more comfortable. Richmond nailed us on the turnover and their F50 entries in the first half were so quick and clean. Also thing our chaos ball strategy entering F50 can be found out a bit by a top shelf backline, so many entries came straight back out. Lastly, Dusty ripped us apart.

What a great crowd too, wish I could have gone down for this one. Biggest ever crowd against an interstate team in H&A season, wow.

Surely next time we at least send someone to stand in the same postrcode as Lachie Neale.

At the ground it was painfully obvious how little attention was spent on him.

Playing with fire I reckon. I dont understand why we dont run Graham or Lambert on him.

I wonder about our tactics after the first quarter. We really didn't try to stop them a lot. We just went head to head, and won. We allowed them to set up behind the ball and Neale to get 1001 possessions. Maybe Dimma was keeping some tactics under his hat. In some ways it was very Richmond, in some ways very un-Richmond how we played. I wouldn't be shocked if we turn up with a very different strategy in a fortnight.

Reckon in finals we might, but we back our system more often than not and it worked so why mess with it.

Love the Lions always have but I'm not sure why people are saying we jumped them in the 1st quarter, Brisbane kicked the first goal and were super competitive for the first 10 mins, it was the second half of the 1st quarter where we got well on top and resulted in a 4 goal lead.

There was also a moment in the 2nd quarter where we were up by nearly 5 goal and kicked 4 points in a row, all easy chances too so the game could have blown out to 6-7 goals, to the lions credit they regrouped after halftime came out kicked the first 2 and got back into the game. I felt we took their punches and then did what we had to get a 4 goal win. The big point was keeping the Lions to their lowest score this year with just 55 points. That tells me we were quite comfortable yesterday with our structures.

In Brisbane it will be a much tougher challenge, but I seriously reckon we are up to it, we saw Geelong pretty much out play the lions the other week but then lost their nerve in the last 5 to 10 minutes and Brisbane made them pay, so Brisbane isnt unbeatable at the GABBA.

Looking forward to the game, it's going to be a cracker.

What a splendid day was had yesterday. Due to medical issues, this was the first game I've been to in three years. I went with seven others, including two mates of 45 years standing.

The game was played at breakneck speed for most of it. Richmond dominated the first quarter, due mostly to 'Dusty' Martin. I've never seen a footballer of such quality and awesome style, coupled with his unparalleled strength. Several times during that first quarter, he managed to kick a 40 metre 'stab pass' to a forward, while a couple of Brisbane blokes were hanging off him. Amazing!

We were in an area near the Punt Rd goals. We were among a good mixture of supporters from both sides. The banter between those around us, especially Richmond supporters, was extremely witty, and the whole atmosphere was extraordinarily friendly. There is one thing which hasn't changed at the MCG though. For many years it appears to have been made illegal for people to watch where they're walking. Oh well.

If i'm correct (can't find the details of the scoring ATM), I think Brisbane might have won every quarter on the scoreboard, except for the first. After Reiwoldt kicked his marvellous four goals in the first quarter, he was rendered almost kickless by Adams. It was a great display of confidence in him by Fagan to leave him there. Richmond's defence won the game for them. They rebounded from their back 50 almost without fail, and denied Brisbane virtually any marks in their forward line.

All in all, a great game, and an exciting portent of even better game in a fortnight.

Hope you are over your issues and on the mend mate

Should be an interesting re-match I always reckon it's tough mentally to beat the same side two weeks in a row.

I don't think Neale is the kind of guy you tag, you've just got to hope our guys can beat him on the inside. Tbh I'd rather tag Zorko.

Been tagged at stoppages this year. Then free'd up once ball has spread

The big question is how many goals is the Gabba worth. I tend to think we are 3 goals better at the Gabba then at Docklands but 5 goals better then at the G.

Also we need to play 4 quarters not 3 to win. If Richmond get up by 20 points that's fat lady time.

If I was a bookie I would have it 1.8 Richmond 2 Lions.

Agree mate. One thing we will need to clean up is our goal kicking. We missed 6 easy set shots. 2 in the first and 4 straight at the start of the second. Also I'm confident Lynch will bounce back, but imo so will Cameron.

Will be a cracker

Def more worried about Riewildt Dusty etc then Lynch. Don't know if you followed Lunch v Andrews in the Q clashes before you guys got him but Giraffe gas his measure.

Now that I've said that he'll probably kick 6
