Title: Changes R5 Tigers v Demons
Post by: Chuck17 on April 14, 2018, 07:23:54 PM
Fire away

Probably none unless Graham misses a week. Would like to see Miles in if that happens but will be anyone else but ie CEllis, Higgo, Menadue.

Don’t know if Broad will come in, would like to see him for Cona but that won’t happen

Think if graham gets suspended Higgins will come in. I would like to see miles in if that happens but based on the emergencies looks like his down in the pecking order. Now that conca looks like he’s playing in the midfield rather than defence I don’t understand how he’s in the team ahead of miles either.

Don’t know how broady breaks into this team without an injury or suspension looks like it’s either him or short who has started the season well.

I'm not sold on McIntosh's form at the moment.

Reckon he is in the gun and a number of players looking for the chance.

Menadue looks ready from the limited VFL footage I have seen.

The Herald-Sun's Barometer Round 5

RICHMOND

ON THE BLOCK: Toughie. Damien Hardwick had to turf two blokes who had done nothing wrong to get flag stars Josh Caddy and Dion Prestia back in the 22. Maybe Jack Graham has a rest, either through injury (his thumb was strapped after the game), Michael Christian or rotation.

ON THE CUSP: Nathan Broad is the interesting one. Was available for selection in Round 4 after completing his three-match club suspension but was named an emergency. The Tigers will be keen to give him a chance to continue where he left off in a premiership-winning defence. First-year dynamo Jack Higgins might have to wait another week for a second crack at the big time, but he’ll get plenty of chances in the future.

ELIZA SEWELL’S FORECAST: The Tigers are 3-1 and looking good but it’s worth remembering two of those wins have come against Carlton and Brisbane. Hawthorn was a genuine scalp while the loss to Adelaide in Adelaide can probably be written off as insignificant in the scheme of winning premierships in 2018. Tough test awaits in Round 5 — Tuesday night, Anzac Day eve, v Melbourne at the MCG. Bookies have the Tigers solid favourite and on form Dimma’s boys are 4-1 before facing the Pies at the MCG on a Sunday arvo in Round 6.

In the Mix: Round 5

Jennifer Phelan
afl.com.au
17 April 2018


RICHMOND

Get them in: No one back is from injury as the VFL had a bye. Nathan Broad is available, Jack Higgins and Sam Lloyd were unlucky to be dropped, and Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis were good in round one of the VFL.

Under the pump: Tough to single out poor performances from a 93-point win and Damien Hardwick made a point last week of keeping players in the team who were deserving of their spot.

Medical room:
Daniel Rioli is the only player on the injury list with the Tigers hopeful of his return via the VFL in the next few weeks. Jack Graham is challenging his one-game striking ban at Tuesday night's tribunal.

Verdict:
Lloyd, Higgins, or Miles are obvious options to replace Graham if he's out. They'd have to shuffle if Broad came in, or they could surprise with Ivan Soldo or even Callum Moore to stretch an under-siege backline.

If Jetta doesn't come up for the game, then I reckon Miles is a definite inclusion. If Jetta is fit, we might need to go for more pace.

Seems a reasonable sort of idea, but we have resisted that temptation in the past (getting some real help in there for Nank) against better teams than Melbourne, so not sure why they would change the philosophy now.

Also, I can't see Soldo playing very often in the same team as Nank. Again, history suggests that the selection committee don't like having two big ruckmen in the team, so if we do go for more height and support for Nank, then I actually think Chol might be the player picked.

Offers much more around the ground than our other talls, and we place a premium on that, to the extent that we would rather use Grigg as back-up ruck and concede the hitout.

We need to kick the ball low into our offensive areas and forget about high marks, Bringing Soldo or Chol in will make no difference, they are both long term projects and we have to be prepared to suffer a lot of pain with both of them.

Bring one of them in this week expect nothing and see how they go but low ball delivery is the key IMHO

When Nank is up forward or Jack is the target fair enough but in most cases our best result is when the ball is on the ground.
Title: Re: Changes R5 Tigers v Demons
Post by: dwaino on April 18, 2018, 12:45:50 PM
Our current forward line tactic should work. Dees have no defensive structure at all at the moment and their mids don’t run back. Just get in there quickly and any way possible and let our smalls do their work when it hits the deck. I’m more concerned about contested ball and stoppages. That’s the only thing they do well and why Graham needs a like for like replacement.

Speaking of Richmond, they lose Jack Graham to suspension, opening the door once again for ball-magnet Anthony Miles. The Tigers like their team structure and Miles is the most similar type to Graham available, but I have a sneaky suspicion they could opt for Sam Lloyd. The 27-year-old is working on his midfield skills and also brings some uncanny goal sense, and they do like that versatility down at Punt Road.

Tiger Broad in line to return

Daniel Cherny
The Age
21 April 2018


Richmond premiership defender Nathan Broad is firmly in contention to play his first senior game of the season when the Tigers take on Melbourne at the MCG on Tuesday night.

While Richmond have not yet finalised their side against the Demons, it is understood Broad is being strongly considered for what would be his first senior game since his three-match ban for sharing a photo of a topless woman wearing a premiership medal in the midst of post grand final revelry.

Broad became eligible to again play senior football in round four but was overlooked as Richmond squeezed Josh Caddy and Dion Prestia back into their 22.

The Tigers will need to make at least one change for the match after youngster Jack Graham was suspended for one match for striking Brisbane Lion Dayne Zorko in Richmond's crushing win over the Lions last weekend.

Richmond and Melbourne won't name their sides for the match until Monday night. However, there will be greater clarity about the composition of the teams for the Anzac Day eve clash when the Tigers' VFL side meet the Casey Demons on Sunday.

Melbourne were badly beaten by Hawthorn last Sunday and will also need to make at least one change, with veteran Jordan Lewis fracturing his hand against his former club.

West Australian Broad, 25, became a mainstay of Richmond's side in the back half of last season but is out of contract at the end of this season. He has played 12 games since being drafted at pick 67 in 2015, missing much of last year with an AC joint injury.

With Anzac Day falling on a Wednesday, the Tigers will need to manage playing two games in five days as they take on Collingwood next Sunday.

Title: Re: Changes R5 Tigers v Demons
Post by: dwaino on April 22, 2018, 05:57:05 PM
Maybe two changes? Higgins would benefit from game time so surely they wouldn’t leave him out of the magoos only to miss Tuesday too and Broad sounds like he’s ready to come back.

I don’t think anyone could be dropped on form from last weeks game and don’t think there’s a need for an extra tall in defence against Melbourne so could rule out broad. So unless they thinking of bringing an extra ruck to combat Gawn bringing in Hampson (please no) then I would say it’s as expected Higgins/Lloyd for graham.

Contested numbers and clearances have been down and replacing Graham with Lloyd won’t do anything to help that. What’s the point of even having Miles on the list if he can’t be bought in to do the one thing he specialises in?

x2

I sometimes think we play a midfielder short when graham is in the side so with him not playing I don’t see how they could justify bringing in Lloyd ahead of miles just because Lloyd ‘can play forward.’ Miles is literally better in every key aspect of a midfielders game i.e. clearances, contested possessions. As for defensive pressure, I’m pretty sure miles has better tackling numbers too.

Miles would be a like-for-like type replacement but he played in the VFL yesterday. So the only choice now is to play those that didn't play in the VFL.

PREMIERSHIP duo Nick Vlastuin and Josh Caddy will miss Tuesday night's Anzac Day Eve clash against Melbourne after failing to train on Monday.

The Tigers will make at least three changes for the blockbuster at the MCG with Nathan Broad almost a certainty to face the Demons in what will be his first AFL game since last year's Grand Final triumph. 

Vlastuin and Caddy were notable absentees at Punt Road while Broad – who was suspended by the club for the opening three rounds - trained strongly after being left out of the Tigers' VFL team that defeated the Casey Demons on Sunday. 

The Tigers will lose at least three premiership players for the game given youngster Jack Graham is serving a one-match suspension. 

"Unfortunately, Nick and Josh won't make it for the game; they're a little bit short at the moment," coach Damien Hardwick said on Monday. 

"We've got some replacements ready to go for those boys. 

"It's disappointing but that's the nature of our game. You lose a couple and you bring a couple in. 

"We've got some players who have been in great form in the VFL. While it's disappointing to lose Jack, we're happy with the replacements we're going to bring in." 

It is believed Vlastuin, who was scheduled to play his 100th game this week, has a calf issue that stems back to the Tigers' big win over Brisbane nine days ago. 

Mystery surrounds Caddy's absence from the half-hour session. The former Cat had 16 touches against the Lions after returning from a one-week suspension. 

Sam Lloyd and Jack Higgins were also part of the squad of 22 that trained on Monday after sitting out the club's VFL win. 

Higgins looks set to play his second AFL game after his exuberant debut in round three. The big stage (an 87,000-plus crowd is predicted) is sure to suit Higgins' temperament. 

"He's one of those players, isn't he?" Hardwick said. 

"He takes great delight in everything he does at the footy club and he'll be one of those players who'll certainly be in contention this afternoon when we have match committee."

Lying toe rag, Hardwick.
The player in best form in the VFL for the past weeks has been Miles.
Looks like he's got another favourite in Higgins.
Miles must be kicking himself for believing the LIES he must have been told by Balme to stay as he would get a chance at Richmond.
Caddy and Prestia and Graham and Rioli have been out and still they go back to Lloyd and Higgins rather than Miles.
Such a dog act to destroy a player's career.
It's not as if Miles hasn't been showing he deserves a chance.
He's been consistently the best player in the VFL for the past eighteen months.

"He takes great delight in everything he does at the footy club and he'll be one of those players who'll certainly be in contention this afternoon when we have match committee."

Lying toe rag, Hardwick.
The player in best form in the VFL for the past weeks has been Miles.
Looks like he's got another favourite in Higgins.
Miles must be kicking himself for believing the LIES he must have been told by Balme to stay as he would get a chance at Richmond.
Caddy and Prestia and Graham and Rioli have been out and still they go back to Lloyd and Higgins rather than Miles.
Such a dog act to destroy a player's career.
It's not as if Miles hasn't been showing he deserves a chance.
He's been consistently the best player in the VFL for the past eighteen months.

geezus Redan, thats bloody poor form.

If you want to know why snipper doesnt get a game , go & watch VFL & you will see.

As disrespectful a post as I have seen, disgusting

If we lose to Melbourne it will be because of the midfield.
To lose two hard nuts in Caddy and Graham (and Dusty just going, for him) and replace them with Lloyd and Higgins is not just stupid but totally arrogant.

If we lose it will be solely down to Hardwick.

V Casey
Miles was at his ‘ball-magnet’ best, racking up 35 disposals (21 contested possessions, 11 clearances), Best – Richmond: Miles, Soldo, Baker, Ballard, Wood, Bolton, Markov, Menadue.

BEST:
Richmond: Miles Ellis Balta Ballard Moore Morris

v Port
Anthony Miles, in customary fashion, accumulated the ball at will, and was at his reliable best in front of goal.

I have deleted my derogatory comment about you.

Still believe it is gutless to call Hardwick - " a lying toe rag and Balme a liar, & then state they have destroyed his career and its a dog act.


Anyway, we all know Miles gets a heap of it @ VFL level, no doubt but he 1 dimensional, cant play forward or back, wont / cant chase or put pressure on outside the stoppage.

He was essentially delisted from GWS, we gave him a lifeline & he grabbed it, unfortunately the game has gone beyond him @ AFL level, maybe when the grounds get wet or heavy he may get a chance

That’s probably the thing that gets me, posters can repetitively bag the crap out of the RFC coaches and when a poster gets one post back at them they performing a fainting spell and call foul.

And posters repetitively bag the crap out of players (and many also did of Hardwick before last year) and now it's not accepted when it's a coach.
I did not "perform a fainting spell". I directed the poster to where he could ignore my posts and then reminded him of posting guidelines.
Those guidelines I would think are there to retain some semblance of order on the boards. Without them there would just be a slanging match back and forth.
You make me think of those calling for greater "freedom of speech" but only for viewpoints they agree with or espouse.

Obviously there is a major reason for the continued ommission of Miles, I would probably conclude that the defensive aspect of his game is most likely what is keeping him out, but that is only my guess. The attacks on Hardwick for his continued ommission are short sighted. Teams are picked weekly through a "match committee" So you can blame Caracella, leppitsch, Balme, Mcqualter, Mcrea (sp) and god knows who else is on it. THEY OBVIOUSLY KNOW SOMETHING WE DONT OR THAT WE ARE OVER LOOKING. He'll get a game when "they" consider he deserves it, not when "we" think he should.

Rodge, I’d imagine it’s a forest for the trees thing. Beveridge had a golden rule about players being able to play 2 positions, Dimma has one regarding defensive running....

What about if we lose but would have lost by more if Miles was in the team because of his lack of defensive running?

If we can't win this with a couple of occlusions then we don't deserve to.

Our ins are great.

All the posts about who is in or not point to our great list depth for on ball players, mids and run with players.

I have felt the same about Miles and liken the scenario to Tucky but hey, we are sitting at a keyboard eating twisties, what would we really know?

So lets lighten up and have a bit of fun. This is better than the 1983 - 2016 doldrums (with about 3 years exceptions).

When we beat Melbourne tonight we will be equal top of the ladder, it will be a blockbuster crowd.

I am going tonight, will shout "ball", "you've got to be kidding" and "get your range rover serviced" and belt out our club song at full time.

I’m just surprised that anyone pulled up injured at all after the long break as everyone seemed OK after the Lions game. Caddy has played 1 game in 3 weeks? I’m kind of hoping they’re just a bit sore and being rested so they’re right for Sunday.

Miles doesn't get picked because he'a a slow one-way runner whose haphazard disposal by foot makes Shane Tuck look like Nathan Buckley. :shh

I disagree that he's one dimensional though, could easily play forward....as I've said before, he's a fairly reliable set shot and he draws free kicks which is particularly useful in the forward 50.....and I'd still play him ahead if Lloyd... :shh :shh

Obviously we didn't lose so.....

I still maintain that Miles would have been a better choice than Lloyd but it's only an opinion that can't be proved one way or another.

And if we win?
Then I'll be wrong and our midfield will have stood up big time.
Think our midfield did stand up big time and was really impressed by the work done by the small forwards and backs to help out through the middle was the most impressive thing.
Don't know whether that's just me looking so closely at that area but it appeared there was more support than usual this year from player like Grimes, Ellis, Butler and Castagna.
Was also impressed with the amount of time Higgins spent in the midfield and didn't look out of place.

i don't watch the vfl games so i can't comment on his running but he seems to cover the ground ok whenever he is in the senior side to me? he also averaged over 4 tackles a game in 2017 and 2016. In 2017 he was actually top 5 in tackles behind average tackles with Graham, Morris, Lambert, Cotchin taking top 4 spots.

So I don't think he goes soft in the contest. His kicking I don't think is horrible either and he has pretty good goal sense. I am with Redan in the sense that OK fair enough he might get squeezed out of the side for Caddy and Prestia. But for lloyd? Really?

Broad is an excellent defender. Can play on smalls and taller types.
Lloyd kicked a ripper goal and ran hard. He did have a few brain fades though, some ridiculously bad.
