Game Chat – Richmond vs Sydney

Written by Thommo on June 28 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium Thursday 28 June 2018, 7:20pm AEST

SUMMARY
Both teams enter this clash fresh off the bye and leading the competition at first and second on the ladder. The Tigers expect to regain David Astbury and believe Dion Prestia is fit enough after a recent strong training block but Bachar Houli will miss again, while the Swans could have Sam Reid and Lewis Melican available. The Tigers are packing an attacking punch at the moment with Jack Riewoldt fifth in the race for the Coleman Medal and Josh Caddy narrowly behind him at eighth. For the Swans, Lance Franklin has booted at least one goal in every game he’s played this season to rank third in the Coleman, and his duel with Alex Rance will go a long way to determining the outcome. The Tigers will also look for continued drive off half-back from Nick Vlastuin and the much-improved Jayden Short, while the Swans will be hoping for another strong showing from youngsters Oliver Florent, Ben Ronke and Tom McCartin.

    1. Hope you didn’t end up doing this. I unfortunately forgot to take the c off him (used him as a loophole last week as he had the bye)

      What a pickle.

  4. #1 post-bye goal was get Heeney in. Suggest mistake was probably not starting with him. But to finally get him in and he has this slow of start…ouch.

    Reckon it’ll be a good game though. Long way to go for a player like him. Hopefully he can lift a bit!

    My SC season is now on life support and not expected to make it through the night.

  8. Spent all week tossing up whether to go Guelfi to Riewoldt at F7 but didn’t pull the trigger because I was a bit low on trades (5). If Guelfi can somehow pull out an 80 I can still make the move next week.

  9. Yep cheaper than the 546k I paid for him tonight.
    I knew he was overpriced and wanted to wait before getting him, but with Fritsch named on the extended bench for Sunday’s game I bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on the Trade 20 minutes before the game.

    Bloody Thursday night games. Bugger.

  10. So Lloyd scored 50+ in the last quarter??? Were they warranted / ‘real’ points scored or ‘magical unicorn’ points by CD?? (Didn’t get to see the game)

    1. Unicorns, unicorns everywhere! 34 possessions @85% eff with 21 by foot (most were short chippys), only 5 contested though, 8 marks, 3 tackles, 4 1%ers, and 3 clangers. Pretty sure he had more than 3 clangers!

      Got a bit of it, but 136 is flattering from what I saw. Got a lot of outside ball floating around packs and loose in defence. I don’t have him and I am SALTY!!

      1. I remember one point in the 2nd qtr watching his score where he turned it over in the centre square and it directly resulted in a Richmond score and he went up two SC points which was bizzare. He had a solid game, but would’ve thought 136 is pretty flattering.

        Could be because I’m also salty!! starting to think not owning him is seriously hurting my chances!

  12. Saw a lot of chatter on the AFL website about Buddy in trouble because of his slap / punch on Rance. Do you reckon he’ll miss games because of it? Didn’t look that serious to me, mostly because (1) Rance dropped his elbow on Buddy’s head about a quarter of a second beforehand, and (2) Rance could be in the World Cup with his staging (shouting, throwing his body back like he was shot).

    T/U – Buddy will miss 1-2.
    T/D – He should be alright.
