Game Chat – Richmond v Brisbane

Written by Motts on August 4 2020

Where and when: Carrara, 7:10pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Week 1 of the 2019 Finals, a wayward Brisbane 8.17 (65) DEF BY an accurate Richmond 18.4 (112)

What it means for The Tigers: The Top 4 beckons and after crushing the hopes of another premiership aspirant last week, Richmond will be looking to deal out more of the same to the second placed Lions.

What it means for The Lions: Heaps! They need the win to stay in touch with Port at the top of the ladder and the loss in last year’s finals would still be stinging.

Motts Watch: After snagging Alex Witherden yesterday to plug the hole left by Docherty’s absence in my backline, I’ll be looking for a repeat of last week’s 170 point performance.

Mottsy’s Tip: Tigers by 10 in a high-scoring match

  1. Thanks Mottsy, Witherden and Dusty watch for me. Witherden needs another solid performance for JS in my eyes and Dusty needs CBAs to convince me to waste another trade to bring him back in again.


  2. TU – Taylor, Sturt, Simpkin > Duncan,Dusty & Draper (2k left)
    TD – Taylor & Sturt > Duncan & Draper. Means I keep Simpkin (92k left)


  3. Hi coaches,

    Who should I field:

    TU aarts
    TD skinner

    Will loop the non fielded player with close as I still have 7 in fwd this week



      1. Morning! Much less scared than before now that we aren’t losing ground to Neale every week. And cute as always.


  4. Ha ha..

    love this game so far. SC Dream..

    Dusty and Neale shake hands and then just run off each other.

    Old school.

    Captain Neale seems ok too 😉


  5. Half Time – Brisbane haven’t beaten Richmond for 14 years
    RICH – 8.5.53
    LIONS – 3.8.26 (with Skinner missing a goal from the goal square)

  6. I guess i won’t be getting Neale on my team now , the man going to be expensive.

    And move it Skinner!!


  7. damn , picked the wrong game to bring a rookie fwd into my team
    hope skinner isnt next weeks scape goat


    1. he will be – fagan doesn’t forgive lightly and that play on kick and miss from 11 metres out almost turned match completely and you could see Fagan’s face … its like it deflated the lions …


  8. scoring is just way out tonight – start of third quarter aarts made two tackles back to back – none paid.
    Dusty took a mark in the square, ran the ball forward, kicked inside 50 to Reiwoldt who marks and kicks a goal … all he got was 4 points … that was minutes ago and his score hasn’t changed … sh@its me the inconsistencies


    1. no chance now … my second team after the Bombers and living in Brissy … but they wont make up that difference – Tigers too good and Lions have a mental problem playing them


  9. woah – that’s an ugly result for Lions … smashed again by Tigers … that may destroy their confidence again as it did in last years finals …


  10. Cash league opponent had VC on Neale & aarts. Not a great game for me -_-
    Non Neale owner …
    Need to bring him in next week.


  11. Skinner and Ballenden don’t look much chop … Skinner in particular seems to lack confidence and desire to get the ball at times … so hesitant most of the night … apart from the brain fade taking a mark 11 metres out in front and playing on and missing …


      1. Skinner and Ballenden will both go as soon as reinforcements arrive imo, Lions went in too tall tonight.

        Both useless, no utility as talls or 2nd rucks. Skinner, like Macca said, looked hesitant and Ballenden lazy.


        1. have to treat him as a nuff basically in the Fwds if you brought him in tonight … cheap value to trade in to free up other cash … that’s about as good as he seems to be … it could have been different if he’d kicked that goal … might have lifted him and his team mates … instead you could see the entire team deflate …


          1. Well at least my other rookies scored better and my premos scored double digits which im happy about.


  12. Full Time – Tigers double the Lions score & win by 41 points -12.10.82 to 4.17.41, with disappointing points for those who brought in newcombers Skinner & Ballenden

  13. Brisbane kicking let them down again. You think that’s an area they would like to correct and prove against the Tigers?


  14. Hmmm, Neale……oh wait……phew…..Neale now 149 which is above his average…….didn’t want to give a below average player the responsibility of captaincy…..LOL
