Pretty sure I saw you on the train on the way home, mate. The 6.40 from Southern Cross. Were you in the front carriage, sipping out of a drink bottle?For once I am not drunk on game day, but hear me out: Soldo simply has to play from now on. I would play him and Nank together. He cannot be dropped.
Live site at the MCG with the match on the scoreboards. We will fill it out with 100k tiges supporters and they will hear us from Brisbane.Even if it's not at PRO but somewhere inside and big enough for a thousand or so Tigers supporters. Are the club considering it ?
Toast- this team. After round 13 it looked like top four was impossible. Every game from then Onwards was an elimination final and we literally had to win all our remaining games to secure the double chance. We were able to do this which was a phenomenal effort. Apart from the west coast game, we never looked in danger of losing any of our last 9 matches. For this Richmond deserve to be immensely congratulated. Especially in a season where we were cruelled by injury!
Roast- Junk time goals and the impact this had on our percentage. In almost all of our losses we got blown away due to conceding goals late when the match was over. Similarly when we had games won, we often took our foot off the pedal, and gave up multiple goals when the result was beyond doubt. This mean that that our percentage was quite ordinary compared to every other top four side and it probably cost us a home qualifying final given that Brisbane finished only 3 percent above us.
Changes- No change. We beat Brisbane comfortably with the team we put out there today. Why mess with a winning lineup?
I agree. Thought he was huge. Got a vote from me
It's more to do with hope, makes themselves feel better about losing to us. Happened last week against West Coast too. WE should have put them away in the second and had 4 easy chances which all resulted in points and the game would have gone from 5 goals to 8 goals. Unfortunately they came out after halftime kicked a couple and got their tails up but we with stood their punch and went on with it.Why are so many people saying they were better than us (some here but mostly on other forums/social media) We flogged them and that was with missing 6 goals in the first quarter and getting railed by the worst umpiring since last week in the second quarter. We were easily the better team and weren't even playing at our peak lol
I’ve thought people were harsh on him, still a developing player. I’ll forgive one, maybe two bad errors but he had at least 3 or 4 today.Short was bloody ordinary today. Kicking was atrocious
Good summation. Worse for me, I’m in the States. Game will be on at 5 in the morning, no idea if where and if I will get to see it!In two weeks we get to welcome Brisbane back to the finals. Remember 2001 when they smashed us by 11 goals in a prelim and went on to win the next three flags? Time for revenge.
Balta isnt ready, his ruck work was good but just a passenger most of the game. Nank comes in for him. Imagine that will be the only change.
I am expecting we will up the ante a little in two weeks. We played well enough to win, and the Lions fought back and did enough to look like they could maybe match it with us. I am glad they fought back because we got a good look at what they can do. Will they cope with the heat of finals football against a battle hardened Richmond? Can't wait to find out but I am betting its on Saturday night which sucks for me because I am playing a gig
Of course they will be a tougher prospect.Fantastic win but I think the Lions will be a more difficult proposition at the Gabba. Looking forward to it already.
I was thinking more about this before. None of their forwards really troubled us. Cameron is their most threatening but covering smalls is what we do best. I thought both our mids and forwards were down on the pressure stuff. Clamp down a bit harder on their mids. I know we don't really run tags but plan a bit more for defending clearances and Neale, and like today I don't see how they can kick a score that can win a final. Their forwards would need to pull one out of the bag. Where as we've got upside in that we didn't play the way we normally do.they scored a massive 55 points and most of those were off the back of zorko and mctuggage plays. neale did nothing
