Game Chat – Richmond vs St Kilda

Written by Thommo on May 26 2018

WHERE AND WHEN:  MCG at 1:45pm AEST

SUMMARY

The Tigers will be looking to return to the winners list this week after losing just their second game for the season last Sunday. They’ll be looking to restore their pressure game after it somewhat deserted them against West Coast. They went into the clash ranked third for pressure points in the competition, and then posted the third-worst result for the round against the Eagles. It’s what the Tigers pride themselves on and they’ll need better output across the field if they’re to bounce back. Meanwhile, the Saints’ goalkicking remains a problem. Only once this season have they kicked more goals than behinds, and against Collingwood on Saturday night, they recorded 10.12 with midfielder Jack Newnes (four goals) the most damaging in attack. Tim Membrey remains out of form, and as their sole available key forward, needs to turn things around if the Saints are to be any chance against the premiers.

      1. Discussed him a bit the last two weeks. No Roberton seems to be helping him heaps. He was good in patches last year, would love to be on him, but a tough choice for bye balance.

    1. Yeah man ive had him in my draft team all year and he is dominating but I keep wimping out of bringing him into normal team.
      Even this week went the “safe” bet of howe when upgrading murray. Now im at the point I cant afford to bring him till after rd 14 bye but will def keep on spot open for him till then.

  3. Glad I didn’t trust Dusty with the VC.

    Phillips looking ok.

    Bit annoyed I took Simpson instead of Webster a couple of weeks ago.. would have been better for bye too.

  6. Rice looked poised & very solid today, great downgrade for a fattened rookie next week!

    Also Austin showed something special, been in the system a few years now but looked very comfortable against the reining premiers!
