Game Chat – Richmond v West Coast

Written by Motts on August 27 2020

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

Last time they met: R22 2019, Richmond 13.10 (88) DEF West Coast 13.4 (82)

What it means for Richmond: Win and they’ll take West Coast’s place in the Top 4.

What it means for West Coast: A chance to prove to the footy world that they can beat a good team outside of the comforts of home.

Motts Watch: Couple of things: Tom Lynch – is he going to tone the aggression down this week or risk the wrath of the tribunal again? Dylan Grimes – is he going to tone the staging down this week or risk the wrath of the social media world again?
Mottsy’s Tip: West Coast coming off a 4 day break and travelling from one side of the country to the other will be the difference here. Richmond by 20.

  1. Moving Pickett on so 30 mins to decide!

    Last midfield spot chasing value

    TU: Gaff

    TD: Dunkley

  2. Which trade to do before game starts

    TU: OUT – Aarts, IN- Ricciardi (Ricciardi or Mosquito will be onfield at F6 instead of Aarts)

    TD: OUT – McPherson, IN – Bailey Williams (will be bench spot)

    Bringing in B Williams means I will have an DEF emergency, bringing in Ricciardi means no DEF emergency


  3. Fk
    My hawks got smashed &
    I put the C on Mitchell & the VC on macrae
    Bad start to what looks like a sht round


    1. well it doesn’t look too bad for Titch as he still got a 122.
      Many who have gone for Nic Nat might be a bit concerned after seeing this 1st quarter. No score with 5 minutes left in the 1st quarter


      1. Almost traded in Nic Nat but reversed trades just before the hawks game
        Didn’t trust him away from Perth
        Took mcinerney’s ruck donut instead to save a trade as it’s best 18


    2. I feel your pain – in the rush to get trades and captain choices done in time, I threw VC on Titch then somehow panicked and thought I need a non-playing player as Captain, in case Titch goes big, so put it on Draper….. realized my mistake (forgot it was Bombers that were playing Hawks) and tried to change it but too late, locked in.

      So now have Titch’s 122 as captain score. Could have been worse, but not ideal in week 1 of finals FFS. Bloody 4.40pm games on a work day suck!


    1. yeah, and halfway through second quarter he’s up to 44 … honestly such favouritism in scoring from CD … being paid stats he hasn’t got …


      1. was on 44 then gives away a free kick which means a shot at goal for Richmond and they score a goal. No change in score from it


  4. They are saying Kennedy and Grimes both done for the night- Kennedy head knock and Grimes hammy they think …

    1. I had thoughts on backing Houli, but wasn’t confident after last weeks score. Then realising he still had his bye, really drove me away


      1. yeah that’s why I held for this week, but was hoping for a big price drop and prepared to wear his bye if he came back … just didn’t expect him back that big!!


  6. Very confused re scoring for ruckmen from this game.
    Soldo: 5 K, 4 HB, 3 MK, 1 TCK, 1 GL, 22 HO, 1/0 FREES, 2 CLANGERS = 72 points
    NicNat: 6 K, 5 HB, 0 MK, 2 TCK, 1 GL, 22 HO, 2/3 FREES, 5 CLANGERS = 98 points

    So Naitanui has 1 extra kick, handball, tackle, free kicks for but has less marks, 3 more free kicks against, 3 extra clangers/turnovers, yet gets 26 more points overall.

    I understand there is scaling, however NicNat was shut out of the game so I doubt he benefits off this, and hit outs to advantage aren’t shown, but it seems like this score discrepancy is way too big considering the evenness of their games.


    1. He had a massive jump in score when he took the ball out of the ruck and then scored a goal from it. It was towards the start of the game when more in balance.
      Looking at AFL app, NicNat had 8 HO to Adv where Soldo had 7.
      NicNat had a lot more clearances and 11 CP to Soldos 5.
      I still feel it was over scored as he didn’t seem to have that great of a game
