Game Chat – Richmond vs Sydney

Venue: MCG at 1:45pm AEST

R23, 2016, Sydney 25.14 (164) d Richmond 7.9 (51) at the SCG
R8, 2016, Richmond 14.17 (101) d Sydney 15.10 (100) at the MCG
R13, 2015, Richmond 14.11 (95) d Sydney 11.11 (77) at the SCG
R23, 2014, Richmond 10.8 (68) d Sydney 9.11 (65) at ANZ Stadium
R14, 2014, Sydney 9.8 (62) d Richmond 7.9 (51) at the MCG 

Game notes: From a hopeless position of 0-6, Sydney has dragged itself back into finals contention with a strong month of football that has it sitting 4-7. In its most convincing win yet, the Swans dismantled the Western Bulldogs in round 12, reminding the competition of their defensive prowess and hunger for the contested ball. They come up against a Richmond team that will be fresh off a bye, with the Tigers keen to establish themselves in the top four after Port Adelaide and the Bulldogs missed opportunities to push them out in round 12. Damien Hardwick’s team took momentum into the bye with wins against Essendon and North Melbourne, with Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin forming one of the League’s most potent double acts. The Tigers might also draw an advantage from ruck recruit Toby Nankervis, who will face his former team for the first time.

Thommo’s Tip: I’ve struggled to tip these sides accurately this season so I’m tipping a draw!

  1. Richmond v Sydney at the MCG, 1.45pm AEST


    Richmond: Jayden Short, Shai Bolton, Connor Menadue, Jason Castagna
    Sydney: Gary Rohan, Callum Sinclair, Dean Towers, Nic Newman


  2. I see Dusty is playing, bringing up the question of who to bring in this week.

    T/U = Dusty
    T/D = Kruezer

    Whoever I don’t get this week I probably will later, but who better for this and next weeks say? (If next week is Lloyd and Ryan) Not worried about Kreuzer’s staying fit, just his points. Am worried if Martin is carrying a niggle.


      1. And Kreuzer is playing the Suns. Hate the choice. probably sticking with Kreuzer. Could regret either way.


  3. I’m cheering for Hewett on Dusty (if he is tagging? Not on TV here in Brisvegas, we get the stimulating Suns and Lions matches only … ), whoever from the Tigs can stop JPK … and Rance on Buddy!! GO THOSE PLAYERS!!

    Obviously deathriding Buddy, JPK (JJ Circus brought him in via SLOANE!! WHY?? … in our H2H in the Sc Cup!!) and Dusty as Hutta brought him in for Fyfe!!!

    Hahaha, well played gentlemen with those trades … . hmmm I may not trade now!!


      1. thanks Father … did you go Kreuzer in the end? … Tough choice of the two … and both with low BE … I must admit, Kreuz hasn’t been on my radar at all and his price and scoring is great!


        1. I didn’t bring in Dusty, so I’ll bring Kreuzer in once I see the late outs for his match. Assuming I can stay online. But yeah, I decided that I felt better about Kreuzer vs the Suns than Dusty vs the Swans, especially with him having some issue. If I could I would just bring in both.


    1. Yeh, really wanted Goldy/Dusty to finish up my team but was $600 short, then toyed with the idea of Goldy/Gaz but just can’t trust the shoulder. Ended up traded in Stef despite Archie – been playing predominantly ruck still with Archie up front and when Schache comes back (next week?) Archie will be gone.

      Wasn’t to concerned with a tag but he’s parked up in the fwd line. Was sure they’d either a) rest him if not 100% or b) have him in the engine room against the Sydney Mids… Happy if he can get to 100, better than a 0.

      Time will tell, needed to be proactive to stay up the top…

    And for all of the Menadue owners, he is currently on 20 😉


  6. New D6 needed and rance going to D7 ASAP. *sigh* Nank also seems to have lost it recently. and lets not even mention JPK 🙁


  7. What do you have to do to access live supercoach scores? I looked but is a bit unclear does getting just supercoach gold allow for this or do I have to get a digital pass also? And what’s the pricing like on these?


      1. Hmm, finally did something really stupid this season. Forgot that I had to move Nank forward to bring in Kreuzer. Now I can’t! Going to have to decide if there is someone I want in the mids left to play from the last two matches. Not the sort of thing that should happen, careless. Not a happy camper at the moment.


        1. Ah, there is. Gary of course. No more durability issues than Kreuzer. No less though. Also a low BE, plays the Blues and Saints the next two matches and is in form. Certainly welcome in my team long term. Might have ended up forced into a better trade. I am still very unhappy I missed the Nank thing, but will hope it works out. Made the move already just in case, would go mad if I hosed up bring him in…..

          Am at least happy I waited on Martin. May come in next week.


      2. Ends up on 63?? Must have clangered and/or freed against and did bugger all else to go from 80 to 63.
        Just as well I saw his final score first rather than his progressive scores.


    1. I wish i had held onto him instead of heath shaw. Then buddys score would drop out of my score this round too!


    2. I have been not liking the idea of trading him out, and just can’t see spending a trade to move him. I’ll bring Lloyd in as a mid I think, much rather keep Newman than SPP!


      1. Given S. Selwood has a hammy issue and J Selwood is probably gonna get suspended, this could be a good move for a lot of people.


  8. Totally agree that Newman is a keeper . My son is a tigers fan and he is devastated ! I told him to cheer up cause at least you have Rance . What a player !! Best on by a mile !
