Game Chat – Richmond vs Collingwood

Written by Thommo on July 28 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: the MCG, Saturday, July 28, 1.45pm AEST

SUMMARY
The anticipation for this clash began building after the Magpies’ sixth win in a row in round 15 catapulted them to second on the ladder behind the top-placed Tigers. Since, their round 17 loss to West Coast has relegated them to third but the hype hasn’t abated, and why should it? Two big Victorian clubs, in form and marching towards September, in what many hope is a preview to a hotly contested final, at the MCG on a Saturday afternoon. The Tigers have recent bragging rights, having won the last three, including their round six clash by 43 points, but both teams will go in full of confidence after comprehensive victories over St Kilda and North Melbourne respectively in round 18. The Pies expect to regain Darcy Moore and have declared Steele Sidebottom a likely starter despite a head clash on Saturday while the Tigers are a chance to see Bachar Houli return.

  1. NO late changes to either teams!

    Really hope my gut is wrong for the Pies supporters, but I think this is going to be a blow out!

    I hope for the 90,000 + attending & millions that are watching that my gut is wrong!

    Here’s to hopefully a cracking game of footy

  2. Feels like a grand final already, just has that vibe. I know people were critical of this game not being played at night (including me), but this is great!

    1. Held down out of a contest and Darcy Moore came flying in and Howe copped a knee straight to the forehead.

  4. Martin was on 14 pts , 1 min to go in the 2nd ,
    marked in the goal square & goaled
    went straight to 32 pts
    looks like that SC scorer has Musty Dusty in their fantasy team ..

    1. A lot of cheap ball around half back would be the only thing that’s probably holding him back (and a single mark). You are right though, might be a little stiff – I’d be happy with 65 from watching.

    1. yeh , SC soring is a bit of a joke ,
      was just watching the cats game during the 3Q time break ,
      Stef Martin got 4 pts for a contested mark , handball to beams & a goal assist , all in the 1 play , just comes down to who the SC scorers have in “their” teams ..

      1. Idk I thought the points for Grundy were justified, 14 touches and a ton of marks without even factoring in hitouts
