GWS will want to respond to their loss to the Lions and jibes they don't play the G well , they will also want to preserve their spot on the ladder after two losses , slipping out of the top 8 now seems all too easy and this game looms as a must win for them
Richmond lost 2 games going into the bye and have beaten the Saints and the Suns after the bye
they want to build into a tilt at a premiership , it starts here
a win over the team ahead of them is a great start
while not a must win for the Tigers, with games V Pies and Port coming this game is a real nice to win
momentum is on the side of the Tigers but that has counted for nothing this year
both sides will want to come out hard and fast , one will probably more than the other
The only glimmer of hope I have is that last year when we were about to fly to Adelaide we were in pretty much the same position.
sh*t form, sh*t tactics, and a diabolical injury list.
The lads turned it on and we won a memorable away win.
Hardly sooking, Richmond bring in the big crowds and the big finals atmosphere of course the AFL wants them
in the finals ditto with the Pies. Big crowds = Big dollars, hell I want the Tigers in the finals one of the last
bastions of good football left in the game.
GWS lose Kelly which will hurt but they regain Mumford & Whitfield which are both just as huge for them. Also Coniglio seems fit to go. We might regain Jack but that's a big maybe. I think Mummy will take control of Soldo quite easily and with thier midfield and solid fwd line anything can happen. In saying this my prediction is GWS to lead by under a goal at the last change before the Tigers finish stronger on the bigger MCG and win by 13 points.
