 its some of the games Im worried about.

This weeks game is the classic stand up and be counted game - win this and we are legitimately fighting for a top 4 berth, lose it and we have the added pressure of knowing if we lose to the saints the following week then thats 2 in a row and right back amongst the pack

For as long as I can remember, when we get a chance to make a statement in a big/biggish game we fail. We had one a few weeks back after the bye and we blew it. It will be the same again against Port I reckon. When you have players like Grigg and Ellis (and Houli usually) that go to water in big games we have no hope.
We also have young kids that barely trouble the stats sheet and it all adds up to to many passengers.

When was the last big game we weren't expected to win that we won? It's pretty bad when that Hawthorn win about 5 years ago is still near the top of the list.

Must be the first time in a long time we've won a game like this where there's been equally so much on the line for both sides. In the past, we've just caved without a whimper. Tonight, we fought and fought on even when at times it looked Port could break the game open. Winning it away makes it an extra bonus. We now need to back it up next week against the Saints at Etihad otherwise tonight's effort will be wasted.

4. Richmond

36 points (nine wins, five losses) 112.2 per cent

The Tigers are in the top four and deservedly so. They have played better for some of their wins this year, but the one over Port was hard to beat for grit and determination. The Saints will test them at Etihad on Saturday, but the Giants clash at the MCG a fortnight after that will be most illustrative.

4. RICHMOND — 8-0-5, 112.2, 36


I have a view that Hardwick is an extremely good coach, despite never having won a final. The Tigers have arguably two of the best three players in the game, but still need to bolster their bottom four.

The run home: Your club's road to September

9 July 2017


6. Richmond

36 points (nine wins, six losses) 105.3 per cent

Before Tiger fans get too confident of a quick turnaround, they should cast their minds back a week to see what the Brisbane Lions did to Essendon at the same time, same place. Richmond remains fourth on the ladder [sic. now sixth] by virtue of a late flourish against the Saints, but the first half was perhaps the first time this year the Tigers simply didn't turn up. The season is too tight for that to happen again.
