A week after reluctantly handing the 2020 Premiership Cup to its rightful owner in the 2020 Grand Final rematch, Richmond heads to its favourite concrete jungle in the 2019 Grand Final rematch rematch to try win back the 2019 cup. 8 rounds in and Richmond finds itself in uncomfortable, but not necessarily unfamiliar territory, with injuries mounting and patchy football being played. Meanwhile the Giants have breathed life back into their season with a strong month after a shaky start, and now appear to be very much in the hunt. It should be noted the Giants have sizeable injury list of their own.

History
Richmond and GWS have such a long and storied rivalry it would be impossible to do it justice here. Instead, enjoy this pictorial summary of some classic Richmond v GWS moments.

Teams
Both teams are a revolving door of injuries, I honestly have no idea what either team will do so I will leave the insight to others. All I can say is I look forward to selection melts, hopefully returning to the traditional Thursday timeslot.

Tip
I expect the tigers to come out fired up after a disappointing result on Friday night. From what we have seen this year our best is still irresistible. Our defence will be significantly strengthened by the return of Grimes, and Vlastuin will clearly be better for the run on Friday night. We need to keep in touch with the top 4 to give ourselves a platform and with Brisbane in Brisbane awaiting, a win this Saturday is vital. Richmond by 23.

Bachar Houli's 200th game for the club. A three times premiership player :trophy::trophy::trophy: and a big game player. Starred in 2 grand finals finishing 2nd in the Norm Smith in 2017 and 2019. Just as impressive was in last year's Granny playing out the game with an injured calf.

A champion on and off the field. Let's hope can win our first milestone game this season for Bachar.

His goal in the 77 point win against Fremantle in 2018 where Robert Walls gave the 3,2 and 1 votes to 3 Dockers

They are bit short on KPPs I think so either bring in CCJ or Caddy. Must win, and frankly I don’t see us losing this one

What has Fireman Kane said now? Big boy loves talking sh*t. My sources at 9 and SEN tell me they keep a shovel on hand for all the sh*t that dribbles down the side of his mouth

I’m very nervous about how this year is unfolding as the last time I remember losing so many games by big margins was 2016. We look a bit like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde with our week by week inconsistency. I agree we need two ruckmen going into bat for us and we’re also missing the spread of Prestia.
Can’t pick this one as I’m not sure which Richmond is going to turn up.

2019. This year has started eerily similarly to that year.

In the first 8 rounds of 2019 we had
4 x comfortable wins (Carlton, Sydney, Melbourne, Fremantle)
3 x comfortable losses (Collingwood, GWS, Western Bulldogs)
1 x tight win (Port)

This year its
4 x comfortable wins (Carlton, Hawthorn, St Kilda, Western Bulldogs)
3 x comfortable losses (Sydney, Melbourne, Geelong)
1 x tight loss (Port)

I still think our back up players to our missing senior players aren’t as good as 2019 which makes us fragile and that’s why we’re caving in.

umps reamed us 2% less in 2019 so the port game wouldve been a win if we had 2019 umpiring

We really need a second ruck, Pickett isn't a ruck and was found out against the cats. He's been playing too good to be used in the ruck.

To his credit Aarts didn't play too bad last week, although most of his goals were not too special he managed to hit the target. He won't survive through once we get all of our players back.

Castagna and Rioli need to pick up and hopefully start kicking some goals.

And Dusty, he needs to stand up these next two weeks. Our midfield is looking different without some of our major players and there's no doubt that we can expect them to still play the same when they arnt there. But last week, when the cats were coming back, our midfield went missing, that's were a player like Dusty needs to stand and bring the fight back. It just didn't happen last week. Im hoping that he'll tear it up on Saturday night.

If finlayson misses this week I think it should be a comfortable win, if all goes well this week we'll head into the Brisbane game unchanged with most of our injured still being out for the next 2 weeks.
