Our record crowd against Freo in Melbourne is just 26k (back in 95). The overall record between the two clubs is 38k at Subi last year. Maybe a chance for us to break that record on Saturday.

We must bring our most consistent game this year to beat them  :gotigers

Freo is coming off the bye and so far most clubs have struggled after they have had the bye. Only the Eagles have won after a bye and they were playing Melbourne who were also coming off the bye.

Our record against them at the 'G is very good also and we beat them last year with a very young side...

Fremantle has beaten Richmond at the MCG just once in seven attempts, losing its last match against the Tigers, at Etihad Stadium, by 19 points in round 15 last season.

Can the Tigers translate their form in beating two bottom-four teams into a clash against higher-class opposition? Winning against the Lions and the Kangaroos is one thing - overcoming Fremantle is quite another.

How will Freo handle coming off the bye? It's already caught a few teams out this week and the mental lapse of a week off might be exacerbated by a road trip to Melbourne.

Fremantle by 18 points

Freo coach Mark Harvey commenting on us and the upcoming game today....


Fremantle sit fourth on the table following a promising start to the season, but will face a stiff test against the Tigers, who have posted wins over North Melbourne and Brisbane in the past fortnight.

Despite Richmond forward Jack Riewoldt booting a league-best 21 goals this season, Harvey was unsure exactly what role the defending Coleman Medallist would be given this week.

"It's interesting when you listen to (Tigers coach) Damien (Hardwick) speak sometimes. It doesn't always necessarily look like he wants him (Riewoldt) down there being the prominent full-forward," Harvey said.

"I guess they grapple with that all the time.

"I'm just saying it's just interesting listening to Damien over the last four or five weeks, depending on whether they win or lose, what he actually says.

"Two weeks ago, they had him running off the wing early in the game like Buddy Franklin, so you make up your own mind."

Luke McPharlin, Antoni Grover or Michael Johnson will get the job on Riewoldt, but Harvey refused to say which one will get first crack.

The Dockers have lost their past seven matches at the MCG, but Harvey is unfazed by that record.

http://www.sheppnews.com.au/aapArticle.aspx?aapID=16910

Harvey is ... wary of a Tigers side that is starting to find some rhythm after two consecutive wins.

“They haven’t got a lot of injuries at the moment,” he said. “They’re running into some good form and they shouldn’t be underestimated by anyone that plays them.

“And I think they’re performances, particularly over the last month, they’ve been in and around (and) you’ve got a midfield and you’ve got a kingpin down there that’s adding up to them being a lot better team.

“If the supply (to key forward Jack Riewoldt) is pressured, than that’s what we’d like.”

A preview through the Perth media's eyes....

Richmond v Fremantle Preview
Will Brodie
West Australian
May 5, 2011


Two seasons of impressive form have changed the perception of the Fremantle Dockers. Now, we expect them to be dogged, not enigmatic; composed, instead of flighty; and we expect them to embrace being favourites, even when they are on the road.

The Dockers have struggled to beat Richmond anywhere of late, and have lost their last seven straight at the MCG. And the Tigers are as buoyant after consecutive wins, the last of which was an impressive effort to withstand a concerted effort from the spirited Lions.

But the reason the Dockers are better regarded nowadays will be the same reason they will win this match - depth of class.

 It has taken a while, but now the footy world recognises that Aaron Sandilands, Matthew Pavlich, David Mundy, Stephen Hill, Greg Broughton, Paul Duffield, Nathan Fyfe, Hayden Ballantyne and Chris Mayne represent a high quality core of Fremantle talent. Add to that dedicated role players such as Matthew de Boer, Jay Van Berlo, Ryan Crowley and Kepler Bradley and you have a team that is very hard to beat.

Richmond is also developing an elite core. In Brett Deledio, Trent Cotchin, Nathan Foley, and Dustin Martin the Tigers are gradually assembling an imposing midfield, and the Tigers possess the most exciting key forward talent in the competition in Jack Riewoldt (21 goals). Richmond is a dangerous team if they repeatedly win centre clearances, or are given easy passage from defence. They can score goals in quick succession against the best opposition if not heavily pressured.

With Matthew Pavlich spending much of his time on the ball, Fremantle lacks a tall target with anywhere near Riewoldt's ability. Utility and back-up ruckman Kepler Bradley has been their best tall target up front - small-to-medium sized forwardds Mayne, Ballantyne, McPhee and the midfielders have tipped in the goals.

It is depth of talent that makes the Dockers favourites in this match. The Dockers defence is more stout, with the experience of Michael Johnson and Antoni Grover in key positions supporting the rebounding creativity of Broughton, Duffield, and Roberton. In the secondary midfield rotations, the Dockers can throw in the experienced Garrick Ibbotson, former Rising Star Rhys Palmer and mature aged recruit Nick Lower. For versatility, the Dockers have Ryan Crowley, de Boer and Van Berlo, who can play in defence, in tagging roles or as defensive forwards. The Dockers also look to have more genuine forward options, with Ballantyne, Mayne, McPhee, and Pavlich more genuine targets than their Richmond counterparts.

Richmond have shown great spirit, and better organisation, to win its past two against stragglers the Lions and Kangaroos. They are getting fine service from robust on-baller Dustin Martin (averaging 26 disposals), who appears almost untaggable, and dynamic forward Jack Riewoldt. And importantly for the future of Richmond, some lesser lights are finding ways to contribute more consistently. Derided angry little man Jake King (11 goals, 18 tackles) is revelling in his role as a defensive small forward, and utility Alex Rance has played his best football for the club this year, settled in key roles in defence. Last week he snared 11 marks and had the ball 20 times.

Against stronger, better drilled teams however, Richmond becomes reliant on its stars, not all of whom are as consistent throughout a game as their reputations would suggest.

The primary midfields here are well-matched, and this should be a close match. But apart from its edge in depth, Fremantle has the other trump card in this game. Aaron Sandilands. The biggest of the league's big men will give his on-ballers an armchair ride.

In a 'danger game' for the Dockers, their greater spread of talent, and the Sandilands factor, should tip the game in Fremantle's favour.

Hardwick relishes Tigers' challenge
The Age/AAP
May 6, 2011


Richmond coach Damien Hardwick believes the Tigers' performance against Fremantle on Saturday will show just how far his AFL side have come, and still need to go.

Fremantle have lost just once in five matches this season, but the Tigers have also put together two wins in a row.

Coming off the bye last week, the Dockers are nestled in the top four.

And their clash with the Tigers at the MCG could lift them even higher up the table.

"It's a big challenge and they're a great side, Fremantle, but we play reasonably well against them too," Hardwick said.

"It's another chance for us to test ourselves against a top four side ... and we were probably disappointing against (other top four sides) Collingwood and Hawthorn.

"It's another opportunity for our guys to test themselves against good players."

The Tigers have made just one change to the line-up which beat Brisbane last weekend.

Midfielder Shane Tuck is out with soreness, with Daniel Jackson returning after suspension.

Freo match a yardstick
By Jason Phelan
Fri 06 May, 2011



SATURDAY'S clash against Fremantle will be an effective yardstick for Richmond coach Damien Hardwick to gauge just how far his team has progressed in the past fortnight.

The Tigers will be gunning for their third win in a row after defeating North Melbourne and the Brisbane Lions with those victories coming on the back of heavy defeats to Collingwood and Hawthorn.

Those mixed results have made Richmond's form and its rate of development as a team difficult to measure over the past month, but Hardwick is confident the picture will be much clearer after the Fremantle game. 

"It's another chance for us to measure ourselves against a top four side," Hardwick said from the ME Bank Centre at Punt Road on Friday.

"Freo have been tracking along quite nicely and we've probably been disappointing against Collingwood and Hawthorn, so it's a great challenge for our guys to see how we go.

"It's another opportunity for our guys to test themselves against good players, which is what we're always about.

"It will be a daunting game, but one we're very much looking forward to.

"Confidence in a young group is immeasurable. If they get their tails up you generally don't know what's going to happen, so we're just going to go out there, play the way that we've been playing - there's a few things that we can do better obviously - but from an overall development point-of-view, it's a great stepping stone for us."

Hardwick cited ruck giant Aaron Sandilands and classy onballers Matthew Pavlich and David Mundy as the key obstacles between his team and victory with the coach also impressed with the form of Hayden Ballantyne and former Bomber Kepler Bradley.

He admitted Sandilands would probably dominate at the stoppages with his planning centred around his rucks giving him a contest and his midfield group more intent on taking their cues from the opposition ruckman.

Daniel Jackson comes into the side after serving his one-week ban for striking North's Scott Thompson and Hardwick said he had warned the midfielder to curb his aggression to avoid further suspensions in the future.

"He's just got to take himself out of those situations because it costs him, but it costs us premiership points [as well]," he said.

"Last week Simon Black has about 33 possessions and 10 or 11 clearances and if Dan Jackson plays, that doesn't happen. That could have quite easily have cost us four points. He knows how important he is to us from a playing point-of-view and also a leadership point-of-view.

"He's well aware that it can't happen any more."
 
The Tigers have beaten Fremantle in four of their past five matches with Freo unable to record a victory at the MCG in their past seven visits.

Although those records appear reason for optimism, Hardwick said Mark Harvey's team is now a completely different prospect to the one that struggled to travel in years past.

Ballantyne marked man for Fremantle
Guy Hand
The Age
May 6, 2011


Richmond coach Damien Hardwick accepts there is nothing that can stop the AFL's best ruckman Aaron Sandilands.

And there is little that can stop Fremantle skipper Matthew Pavlich in the midfield.

So Hardwick is going all out to stop polarising goalsneak Hayden Ballantyne in the Tigers' important clash with the Dockers at the MCG on Saturday.
Advertisement: Story continues below

The Richmond coach admits he loves Ballantyne - whom opposition players and fans would rate as among the competition's most unloveable opponents - and how he goes about his business.

He admires the niggle, the passion and most importantly the 23-year-old's ability to be involved in Fremantle's scoring plays as both goalkicker and supplier.

So much so that Hardwick would love Ballantyne at Richmond.

"He's one we'd love to have here no doubt about that," Hardwick said.

"He's a quality player, he's a niggler, he does everything I love.

"People underestimate how good he is. His score involvements are outstanding.

"We'll put a player on him that hopefully will negate that and get the best result for us."

One player Hardwick ruled out of that job is Richmond's own niggle merchant Jake King, who will maintain the small forward role he is currently revelling in.

Hardwick believes the Tigers' performance against flag contenders Fremantle will show just how far his side have come, and still need to go.

Fremantle have lost just once in five matches this season, but the Tigers have also put together two wins in a row.

Coming off the bye last week, the Dockers are nestled in the top four.

"It's a big challenge and they're a great side, Fremantle, but we play reasonably well against them too," Hardwick said.

"It's another chance for us to test ourselves against a top four side ... and we were probably disappointing against (other top four sides) Collingwood and Hawthorn.

"It's another opportunity for our guys to test themselves against good players."

I would hope we free Lids up across half-back or as a radical idea let him go head to head with Pav in the midfield and try to hurt Pav going the other way. If Pav pushes forward then switch a tall defender onto him.

Tigers need to fire up for Freo
Chloe Saltau
May 7, 2011


WITH Nathan Foley fit, Dustin Martin firing and Trent Cotchin showing what happens when conscientiousness meets immense talent, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick could be forgiven for thinking he has the makings of the league's next superstar midfield at Tigerland.

Hardwick, though, is not getting carried away, and regards today's match against Fremantle at the MCG as the ideal chance to test his developing team against a top-four side.

The Tigers are seeking their third win in succession after victories against North Melbourne and the Brisbane Lions, but the coach acknowledged yesterday that they had stumbled against tougher opposition with poor performances against Collingwood and Hawthorn.

The trick, he said, was to close the gap between the side's best and worst efforts.

''Superstar is probably a bit far-fetched, but we think we have got the makings of a good midfield,'' Hardwick said.

''How that goes, they are obviously good players, but the measure of a player is not so much the quality of his good games, it's the quality of his bad ones and that is what we have got to iron out, the inconsistency of our midfield group. Their poor games, if we can raise those to a better level, we will be better as a whole.

''They have shown some good signs this year. In saying that, we are still outside the eight.

''We have a fair way to go in a lot of areas, those guys have still got an enormous amount of improvement in them. Where they go, hard work will dictate that.''

Jackson returns from a striking suspension with some stern words from the coach about discipline ringing in his ears.

''We've had a few chats, me and Daniel, over the course of the last two years. He's just got to take himself out of those situations because it costs Daniel, but it costs us premiership points. Last week, Simon Black had 33 and 10 or 11 clearances, if Dan Jackson plays that game that doesn't happen and it could quite easily have cost us four points,'' Hardwick said.

''He knows how important he is to us from a playing point of view but also from a leadership point of view so he is well aware it can't happen any more.''

Hardwick has great admiration for the Dockers, and regards steepling ruckman Aaron Sandilands as an all-but unstoppable force. But he also believes Richmond has gained great belief from its performances over the past fortnight.

''Confidence in a young group is immeasurable,'' Hardwick said.

''It will be a daunting game, but one we're very much looking forward to.''

According to the media this week, sounds as if Hardwick really wants to win this one.
I'm not going in confident at all and we will probably lose.

It would be fantastic if we played like tigers of old and absolutely smashed them. But I'd also take a 1 point win. I'm not fussy.
The boys should just back themselves in and have a crack, fight and fight to win and make a statement to all......

I am worried by how many quickfire freo
goals happened stright after Richmond kicked major.
freo do that to every team. It's due to sandilands ruck dominance.  Not to say our defense doesn't need lots of work still.

Our defense no doubt needs development but in the second half for the first time i thought it gelled as a complete unit, Rance i thought was very good again, normally bite my nails when he is in possession but he is slowly starting to make the right decisions. Also a mention about a player who has got under the radar of alot of people and that is Conca, his decision making for a first year player with only a few games under his belt is phenomenal. Should definitely be in the running for a rising star award.

best win in years. matched a top side in a goal for goal game for most then to run over them.....

yeah, another interstate side and coming off the bye, which seems to be a factor but i cant help but think back to the brisbane game early in 2009 where we got out to an early lead, brisbane fought back and we went goal for goal for a while then just couldnt handle the pressure and folded.

hardwick has this club on the right track.  :thumbsup :gotigers

Fantastic to see all there idiots i bagged stepping up.

Rance- was outstanding in the last and reliable for the other 3.

Ty - amazing how big a role confidence can play.

Gus- I like Gus- So root me!!

Foley- another one.Incredible work rate,even though his disposal will always be heart in mouth.

Grimes - LMAO- Hee's like a fool with one ability and is outstanding at it.

I speak of course of the 1970s spoil-a great ploy by our defensive minded coaching panel.

Cotch one week,Dustin Maori the next.Awesome.

Brad Miller- i hope he roots Pia better than his kicking for goal,if not,pass the nut over.

Lids- Gun.

Jack - Great.

Nahas -  always liked and believed in this bloke.Thankfully so has he.

Jake King - see above.

White - imo was a catalyst in the last qtr by displaying guts and commitment.Love Whitey.

Jacko - work horse.

How good is Jake Batchelor??? He looks like a veteran out there.
Houli has won me over and is getting better by the week.
Conca is going well
Kingy is killing them
Nahas has put himself in a great position with a great pre-season and is killing them with his run and carry
Foley is doing well also and providing good depth to our midfield.
Even Miller is playing his role
Just need Jack to stop trying to take mark of the year at every attempt.

Haven't had much opportunity to get to games for the past three years and only really lurked here of late, but managed to get to the last two games. Fantastic atmosphere today. Really like the style of play being implemented. Hope to get to a few more games soon. Been impressed by Rance these past two weeks, and of course our band of exciting young midfielders and forwards. Good times ahead it appears.

Go Tiges!

That was a good game, so many were good today but I want to point out that Bachar Houli is awesome, he sets up a lot of stuff, got a great kick on him and that beard is pimp.  Freo were scoring a lot of soft frees in the first three quarters, this made me angry, things were broken in the loungeroom, voices raised, neighbours disturbed.

Fantastic performance by the lads today. Nahas and Cotchin were both on fire, and you know things are going well when even Graham and Vickery are converting their set shots! Some disgraceful umpiring decisions, mainly in the first 3 quarters (seemed to even up a bit in the last when the result wasn't going to be easily changed), so to win despite that shows how much we're improving.

great game glad we pumped them in the end.

I was at the game and couldnt find a single negative in any player.

The forward press we put on freo today was unbelievable. Tackling by the likes of nahas, King,  was sensational. Very Collingwood like we were today.

Thought it was good to see Houli back up last weeks effort. Good solid game. Grigg was ok.

Grimes great effort and good to see him start taking marks instead of the spoils. He will make it.

Liked the game of my favourite player Edwards today. He must continue to run and handball and avoid the kick. Consistency is the key.

Rance played a solid game, apart from that kick on the full right in front of us but hey mistakes happen Jackson made at least 3 today and dusty a few also.

He is at times clumsy and sometimes rushes his decisions but we need to persist.

I've always liked Rance but I watched him closely today and I was very frustrated. His endeavour and persistance are without question. His guts and determination are exeptional traits BUT it's his undisciplined acts that disturb me.
He cost us atleast 3 goals today with just stupid fundamental errors most notably standing defensive side at a stoppage especially when it's near their goal. Dumb dumb dumb

4 weeks ago I would've said the game against the Dogs will be a good test for us as a developing club.

Sure we are still a fair way off the Collingwoods Geelongs Hawthorns of this world yet the development growth increased maturity confidence unity desire effort  persistence and competitiveness is something I have not seen at this club since I was a small boy. Benny has the off field going well and Dimma has the on field going along nicely also.

I actually think now next week we'll test the Dogs and their credentialls to being a top 8 side while the RFC start saying how far how long how high and we start getting some well deserved applause. Credibility is not that far away and I for one am enjoying the ride. :thumbsup :clapping :gotigers
Title: Re: Tigers vs Freo game thread
Post by: Hellenic Tiger on May 08, 2011, 01:59:25 AM
What I also loved today was that our best players were our kids and mid tier players.

I was wrapped with Batchelor and Conca's game and thought Nahas and Houli were terrific all game

with little input from DUsty and some other better credentialled blokes in the team.

Best win in years and the development of our boys is slowly starting to take shape as the results are starting

to take care of themselves and we are starting to get the confidence up thus making the win more significant

long term. I just feel real good being a RFC supporter. Being a fan at our games now you can feel the winds

of changing sweeping through leading us to better times ahead with more prosperity and success. There is

definentely now an air of expectation and that nauseating happy feeling in your stomach rather than the

resignation of failure we have been so used to. Kudos to Dimma Benny and the boys for believing in us and

turrning the place around. :gotigers

The kid has still only played under 30 games, is holding down a key defensive spot along side a bloke with only 6 games to his name. He's improved massively this year and can't be expected to win every contest and not make a single mistake, especially at his level of development.

look like I said I've always liked him but it was his fundamental basic errors. His spoil late in the game was fantastic. But he did cost us 3 goals from very basic fundamental errors though.

I really hope he turns out to be as good as a young geelong recruit that was maligned by their supporters week after week in his early years.... That was a young Scarlett who became an all austalian defender and a champion full back.
I really hope he can be that good..... But he got a long way to go.  :pray

According to the media this week, sounds as if Hardwick really wants to win this one.
I'm not going in confident at all and we will probably lose.

It would be fantastic if we played like tigers of old and absolutely smashed them. But I'd also take a 1 point win. I'm not fussy.
The boys should just back themselves in and have a crack, fight and fight to win and make a statement to all......

He is not a scarlett type and will never be. His development thus far reminds me of Ben Reid from collingwood.
I think he could be a Scarlett type, not completely but he is even more attacking than he is, around the same height, etc. Potentially a mix of Scarlett & Chad Cornes. Needs to improve to get to that level, but his stats for his 4 matches this year are.

Rd 7 vs Freo - 21 disposals @ 90% eff, 2 clangers of which 1 was a free against
Rd 6 vs Bris - 20 disposals @ 90% eff, 1 clanger with no frees against
Rd 5 vs Roos - 20 disposals @ 85% eff, 5 clangers of which 3 were frees against (1st game back from 3 weeks off)
Rd 1 vs Carl - 19 disposals @ 75% eff, 2 clangers of which 1 was a free against

Other than the Roos game where he was rusty in the first half, he's been very good this year.
For comparison with some other tall defenders, Sam Gilbert has 74 disposals and 23 clangers & Jackson Trengove has 104 disposals with 20 clangers. Rance's 80 disposals and 10 clangers from 4 games is pretty good for such a young kid.

Against Freo with 100% TOG had 21disposals, 90% eff, 9 marks, 10 pressure acts, 5 score involvements and only 2 out of 14 goals kicked on him, one by Bradley and the other by McPhee

I thought it was a real "rumble in the jungle" for 3 quarters. Awesome effort to steam roll them with 9 of the last 10 goals.

(1) Cotchin....what a star. MVP yesterday (apologies to Rockin Robin)
(2) Conca and Batchelor look like they have already played 50 games. :thumbsup
(3) Found a player in young Grimes. Ditto Rance.
(4) Yesterdays effort was an even team performance.

Grimes needs to develop abit of run to his game. The spoil is great, but we dont need just a spoil, his development must mean that he can run off his opponent and create some opportunity. Hopefully this comes with experience. Nevertheless he has made a good start to his career.
