Had to laugh at Bruce last Friday night when towards the end of the Essendon vs St Kilda game he said the Bombers would go in as favourites against us if this game was at Etihad :facepalm :stupid  :lol.

They might run with us for a time, but like most that try and handle it we eventually should land a few crushing blows and pull away.

We should take this one seriously though, theyíre actually a decent team and we could use the match practise coming into the finals. I donít see the dogs as giving us too much trouble in the final round.

From the outside looking in during previous years I used to wonder why teams locked in to top two didnít start cotton wooling their players. Now weíre there ourselves I get it. Form isnít a switch and we need to start the dress rehearsals for next month. Players returning from injury need to play into form and others are fighting for their spot. No quarter, sorry Essendon.

a 1 point win will suffice so we can hear how close they are all summer by the likes of blobbo and king

Not sure about your theory on dead rubbers. We played Fremantle and St Kilda in the last 2 games of 2017 and history will show it didn't do us any harm

Match preview: Richmond v Essendon

SUMMARY

The Tiger train rolls on and into round 22 in enviable shape. On top of the ladder with breathing room to spare and boasting an almost non-existent injury list, it's sunny skies at Punt Road after they shelved their poor interstate run with a hefty away win over Gold Coast on Saturday. They were even afforded the luxury of "managing" ruckman Toby Nankervis last week with the big man carrying a minor corked quad that would have benefitted from a rest. For the Bombers, a finals appearance is possible when it comes to crunching the numbers but they need plenty of things to go their way. A loss to the Tigers will end the dream despite their recent form that has seen them win seven of their last nine games. Captain Dyson Heppell will line up for his 150th AFL game in a game the Bombers will hope keeps their season alive.

WHERE AND WHEN: the MCG, Friday, August 17, 7.50pm AEST

LAST FIVE MEETINGS
R11, 2018, Richmond 17.12 (114) d Essendon 6.7 (43) at the MCG
R10, 2017, Richmond 11.15 (81) d Essendon 10.6 (66) at the MCG
R17, 2016, Richmond 16.6 (102) d Essendon 11.17 (83) at the MCG
R10, 2016, Richmond 16.9 (105) d Essendon 10.7 (67) at the MCG
R22, 2015, Richmond 10.14 (74) d Essendon 7.5 (47) at the MCG

THE SIX POINTS


1. The Tigers led by four goals at the first change back in round 11 but it was after half-time they really put the Bombers to the sword with eight goals to two after the main break to win Dreamtime at the 'G by 71 points.

2. Expect some forward half heroics this week. The Tigers are ranked second in the competition for marks inside 50 this season with an average of 13.3 per game, while the Bombers are third with 12.8.

3. But, things will be tough for the Bombers in attack. The miserly Tigers are the highest ranked defensive side with an average of only 70 conceded per game, while the Bombers have given up an average of 83.

4. It's been a while since Bomber fans have sung their song at the end of a clash with the Tigers. They last beat them in round 11, 2014, having lost their last seven head-to-heads.

5. A victory for the Tigers will be the first time since 1982 they have won 17 games during the home and away season.

6. It's been quite a season for Shane Edwards. He's ranked No.1 in the competition in the midfielder/forward category, second overall at the club, and 18th from all players in the League when it comes to Schick AFL Player Ratings.

ITíS A BIG WEEK FORÖ
It'll be hard for Jack Riewoldt to replicate his goalkicking feats of last week where he bagged 10 goals, but he still might have reason to celebrate booting a snag Ė or five. Riewoldt will go into the game on 595 goals, meaning he needs a handful to become just the fourth Tiger to reach 600.

PREDICTION: Richmond by 33 points.

Freo were coming off a belting from Sydney and started off hot.

St.Kilda had the slimmest of chances to make the finals as the game started(Essendon finished it at around qtr time from memory).

Perfect tune up to be honest. A little bit of feeling in the game..... but not really!

We're everybody else's Grand Final these days :yep.


Worsfold is excited by the challenge of facing the in-form Tigers as his side fights to keep the season alive, with victory the only option in the clubís two remaining home and away games.

ďI must admit, I look forward to every game and I like the challenge every week,Ē Worsfold said.

ďBut when youíre playing the team that are the reigning premiers and have followed on with that brilliant season last year with another great season, it really opens up for us a chance to have a look at where we sit against a top-line team and take our best footy out there against them.Ē

We'll lose.

They'll start super hot, we'll peg it back mostly but they'll be slightly on top for most of the game and then kick away in the third. The fourth will be a boring 3 or 4 goal affair.

THEN we'll have to endure a summer long 'Essendon will be 2019 premiers' singsong from all and sundry.

Then they'll win 3 of the first 9 next season and they'll be cooked and it'll be just as sweet as it was this year  :rollin

Wrong way Caddy as we had runners on the outside. Luckily Georgie is tackled high 45 out. Gives off to Short but he sprays it OOTF  :P.

The Essendon kick is straight to Ellis but he then kicks it straight back to the Bomber defenders.


We get it back. Dusty across to Short but his kick deep is to the Bomber defender in the middle of 3 Tigers.

Essendon go forward but Grimes is able to touch the ball before it goes through.

Lucky we are playing a crap side like Essendon tonight. Defensively we're doing okay holding Essendon up thanks to our structure but with the ball we've been very sloppy tonight and lazily bombing it high inside 50 too often. Hope Dimma gave them a serve at half-time.

Bummer players swung around 720 degrees drop the ball and its play on, like Dimma said its not so much the frees that get paid but the ones that dont. Clearly two different interpretations of HTB subject to the colour of the team shirt.

The last quarters bit of a worry last couple of games.Agree with clearances and contested position have been loosing that all year even at our best need to get better.

Maybe bigger training load last month and a eye on the finals to.At times yesterday we needed to look up more and not just hit Jack in our 50 was getting triple teamed,but hit other options.

Donít agree at all WP.
And neither did Wayne Carey on the broadcast.
When the ball crosses the line, itís dead and if itís not a free kick for running it through, than itís a point as you are allowed to gather the footy, get tackled and basically fall across the line.
Thatís a point all day long imo.

Donít agree at all WP.
And neither did Wayne Carey on the broadcast.
When the ball crosses the line, itís dead and if itís not a free kick for running it through, than itís a point as you are allowed to gather the footy, get tackled and basically fall across the line.
Thatís a point all day long imo.

Absolutely agree it was a point and an error from Ray.

No it wasn't. What bollocks. If it had happened on the boundary, no way Little Mr. Look at Me awards a free. :shh

Actually he would, would have called deliberate or holding the ball

Which again would be the right call.

If it was a Bu,bling player who did what Briad did, everyome would be screaming it should have been a free

The umps got a lot wrong on Friday night but that one they got very right. Said it on the night happened right in front of us, right decision

Some concerns.

Lost contested.

Lost clearances.

Lost another last quarter.

Efficiency in F50 not good.

Need to fix these are at least breakeven.

we havenít been as dominate.

Is it because we are managing players?

Mentally thinking of the QF?

We dominated them in the 2nd quarter and kicked 1.6 to their 2.1 and their two goals were snaps from the contest. We should have been 40/50 points up at three quarter time. Have a look at the quarter time stats for the amount of play and possessions and inside 50 count for that quarter.

A similar thing happened against Geelong
