Fagan said we're the best side and have been for the past 4 years. He brought up that we've beaten them 15 games straight since 2009. So that's in their head.

Rich won't be back for them while Birchall will be rested given they have a 4-day turnaround compared to our six.

Interesting to see if we tag Neale. Normally Graham gets the tag role if we go with one but he's out of the side as he's struggled this year.

Grimes surely gets Cameron again.

The other thing is to not simply kick down the line or lazily bomb inside 50 and allow Andrews easy defensive marks. Jack and Lynch need to separate so Andrews can't sit in front of both of them.

I think our system works well against Brisbane. We play our way we win.

Inside 50’s ball movement must be continually refined and improved.

Maybe Ross on Neale

Why tag Neale? He had high numbers against us last year and they lost both games

I think we got the lions in there head.Maybe there after a bit of payback from last season's final when there coach said how we loose the game led all the stats.I think Lynch and Jack can trouble them and in the ruck we can dominate.You cut supply to Cameron they struggle to kick goals to.

The key to this game will be the start we make. That suffocating style of play has completely robbed the opposition of all momentum in the last 3 weeks and really should’ve resulted in us winning all of those games comfortably.

I think we like being the hunted, providing we bring our A game again tomorrow night, it won’t matter if we’re inside their head or not
“50-29 felt like the game might be over – 35-50 felt like it was over. Geelong would not get a chance to breathe again. Suffocate and surge – that is Richmond’s game. Make it feel like there’s no space, then make it feel like there’s too much space, a transition that happens in a split second”

Looking forward to another Lions pumping.

Without Hodge I think they don't have a chance.

Dusty v Neale: The match that decides Brownlow?

If you ask Richmond coach Damien Hardwick, Brisbane superstar Lachie Neale is guaranteed to rack up a ton of footy against the Tigers on Tuesday night. But there’s a bloke in yellow and black who is producing Brownlow Medal form.

Running hot: Tigers weigh up tag tactics (Age)

Running hot: Tigers weigh up tag tactics

By Jon Pierik
The Age
August 4, 2020


Richmond have declared tagging Brownlow Medal favourite Lachie Neale could be a futile exercise and have backed their overall game plan to get the job done in a potential grand-final preview against the Brisbane Lions on Tuesday.

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick has never tasted defeat against the Lions, winning 14 straight from when he took charge in 2010, but the Lions have this season emerged as a legitimate premiership threat, having returned to the finals last year for the first time since 2009.

The hard-running Neale has been instrumental in their rise, and has enjoyed a combined 88 disposals in his past two matches against the Tigers - in round 23 last year when he had a career-high 51 at the MCG and 37 a week later in the qualifying final at the Gabba.

The former Docker is averaging 28.7 touches a game this season and, heading into battle at Metricon Stadium, has emerged as outright favourite to claim the sport's highest individual honour, but Hardwick maintained the fifth-placed Tigers were not a team that generally employed run-with roles.

"He has a field day every time he plays us as well. I think he had 40, or it might have been 50, one game he played us," Hardwick said on Monday.

"He is an incredible player. We showed our players some vision of him this morning, he can fight through tackles and get through and then create one v none. He is a player we can tag but the reality is he will probably still get 30 when we do tag him. We will monitor him as best we can.

"We will try and manage his output but the reality is great players do what great players do. We are not a heavy tagging side.

We have those contingencies in place but we will back our side in to play their very best footy and if we do that, we think we will be okay."

Neale was best on ground and had 33 disposals and two goals against the Bombers on Friday night when he was largely allowed to roam free.

The Tigers and Lions have made one change apiece. For the Tigers, hard-running defender Nick Vlastuin returns from a calf injury for his 150th match to replace Oleg Markov. The Lions have rested veteran Grant Birchall, having played eight matches this season, and replaced him with key defender Jack Payne, who will make his senior debut.

The reigning premiers have found their groove after an indifferent start to hub life and reinforced why there is no reason why they cannot claim back-to-back flags when demolishing the Western Bulldogs last week.

Dustin Martin booted six goals in the 47-point win against the Lions in the qualifying final and his growing influence this season has reflected the improvement the Tigers are enjoying despite missing several key players. He was brilliant against the Bulldogs and prompted Channel Seven commentator Bruce McAvaney to declare he was back in "Brownlow shape".

Asked if Martin, who now appears fully over a rib injury, could recapture his stunning form of 2017, Hardwick replied: "It was a pretty special year, there is no doubt about that. But I think Dustin's consistency will always keep him up around that level.

"His last two weeks have been outstanding, the GWS game and the Bulldogs game. He takes a bit of time to warm into the season but once he finds his mojo, he gets up and going. I expect he will be in some really good form from here on end."

Brisbane may have awarded Charlie Cameron a five-year contract but the dashing small forward will not want to reprise the memories of his two performances against the Tigers last year. All-Australian defender Dylan Grimes held him to seven disposals in round 23 and only one goal a week later, while taking crucial intercept marks.

Cameron said on Monday he had learnt from those performances and would look to run Grimes across the ground.

Hardwick said: "Once again, we have got some plans in place. What that will look like, Charlie plays in different parts of the ground, Dylan will, too.

"It will be a team-type match-up at various stages. We know that Dylan is capable of doing the role but Dylan has got other obligations that we need him to fill at various stages as well."

Tigers forward Tom Lynch was well held by Harris Andrews in both matches last year, managing a combined 13 marks and three goals. Hardwick said Andrews was "probably" the best defender in the league and the Tigers needed to hinder his ability to take intercept marks.

"We know how Brisbane play. They know how we play. We both try and do our best to take away their strengths and exploit their weaknesses," he said.

"It's going to be a tough challenge. They are in outstanding form at the moment. I love the way they are playing, I love watching them play."

Totally agree have to pinpoint our delivery in our 50 to our advantage and not let Andrews have his way.
