we certainly had our chances.. 19 inside 50s for 2 goals is just appalling when weíve got the momentum. (Not that the other 3 quarters were any better ).

Tigers' forward line is a mess at the moment: Lloyd (Nine)

"Their forward line is a mess at the moment."

Matthew Lloyd says the Tigers need to find another method up forward, after a wasteful night in attack.

Terrible return for the year

Really shows how poor our forward line was without Lynch etc

To rely on a smaller key forward forward on his last legs going up against 2 or 3 opposition talls each week is better result than I would have thought, we all know Lynch has suffered his share of injuries so itís a bit sad our recruiters werenít thinking this could happen a couple of years ago

Richmond has scoured the market for another key forward but at this stage is unprepared to offer up significant money to drag a second-string forward out of another club.

It means the Tigers will be desperate for star forward Tom Lynch to return to play out a full season after twin surgeries for a metatarsal fracture in his foot.

The Tigers will also be open to playing Noah Balta forward again after trialling him in attack late in the season.

The clubís top 10 pick of 2022, Josh Gibcus, is another player who could be trialled in attack.

Richmondís Jacob Bauer played four games late in the year as a forward and will get more chances, as will mid-sized pair Judson Clark and Noah Cumberland.

We have completely stuffed our forward line up.

Lynch will be in 2024, what Jack was this year if he plays a full year  :shh

I just donít see Balta as a forward. I donít think he has the killer instinct someone like Jack or Lynch has. I find he is more reactionary which makes him great as a defender but for all his athletic gifts he doesnít burn his opponents enough when heís forward of centre

If Melbourne had Tom Lynch fully fit they'd win the premiership.

Have said this multiple times.

Dee's will go straight sets or be thumped by Lions.

They will trade Grundy and have. War chest to afford Lynch. They'll be desperate and give their first rounder for him. Would be a huge win for us IMO with Lynch injury record and the fact we aren't challenging for flag for a few years until we  replace what we have lost.

Help Balta/Gibcus develop fwd craft, get Buku,maybe Cumberland clicks and go and get a gun forward via FA in 2 years when we start competing for flag again.
Go Tigers!
