29 points with Day mIssing last quarter and Chad, Sis and Gunner out.
Not a bad effort really.

They are just a very well oiled machine. Better game plan, better coached currently (don't @ me) and are all on the same page. Hopefully we get back there, but it will take time.

Young team trying the play a game plan that the Tigers have been playing for years.

Cleaner possessions and disposals not putting the recipient under pressure, more intent when tackling to make them stick and we're approaching the standard required.

It's amazing that even with rules designed to open up the game, Richmond makes it an unwatchable defensive scrap..

Loving our backline rebound and fighting spirit - competitive effort all round. Desperately miss Wingard and Gunston for some forward half class.
Our entry did this tbh- Richmond defense held up fine and we made their job easier at every opportunity.

We had a crack.. but just weren’t there at the start and let them get a 3 or 4 goal jump on us that we just couldn’t pull back.

Few issues there that we definitely need to fix as we rebuild this list- but we’re not drastically far off it..

Hoping the Day injury isn’t too serious
Scrimshaw, Lewis and possibly Downie should play next week

Six decades of domination
Richmond played poorly but champion teams can grind wins out. We can all attest to that.

Effort there but skill and polish missing. Can see the gameplan is unfolding and while the execution is frustrating it does excite me. Moving the ball much quicker than we did in the past.

Hope Day is ok. Ditto DGB as well.

Desperately need to figure out what to do with Worps.

Proud of the boys.Played out the game to the end.Clean up the decision making and the disposal efficiency and we will be competitive against anyone.
As for the tigers the pseudotoughness on the field and the pseudohumility off the field has opposition teams as well as umpires intimidated.A couple of defeats and they will quickly come back to the pack.
