G’Day Happy Tigers
Always happy after a Tigers win,especially 2 in a row.
A 26 point win in the end which was comfortable ,although at times
we were challenged by Brisbane who were inspired by their veterans Black and Power.
Herein lies where we are better positioned,these two players are at the back end of their careers,
our 2 oldest players are Newman and Miler,who are both still going quite well.
Our inspiration is coming from young guns-Riewoldt,Martin,Cotchin and the like.
We are starting to develop a list of players that will take the club forward.
Clearly Riewoldt and Martin are going to be superstars for many years to come.
We are now starting to get a nice balance of good young players along with those guys
who have been in the system for a few years now.
Our recruiting has been good this year,love Grigg,just a strong player.
Houli off Half Back a great decison maker and his defensive game very good on Saturday.
Conca is a good player,Batchelor looks comfortable.
Brad Miller is doing some good things.
I believe every player has improved form last season,and Robbie Nahas
and Jake King are playing out of their skin.
We still have Kel Moore and Ben Griffiths to come back,along with Mitch Farmer,so things
looking good going forward.
These are the best players from the Richmond website.
Richmond: Foley, Martin, Nahas, Houli, King, Cotchin
My old favourite Nathan Foley had 40 possessions,I know there were some frustrated
at his overuse of handball,but the fact is he is working hard enough to get the footy
got some good clearances,probably wasn’t our most influential player,but certainly
in our best 6,
But it is great to see him getting back to his best after a long time out of footy.
Probably Dusty and Robbie Nahas our most influential players,
Robbie is working so hard up forward and down back and along with Jake King
was dangerous up forward along with Jack who kicks a lazy 5 goals.
It’s good to have our second win,sitting just outside the 8,percentage needs to be improved,
scoring points this year is not a problem but we need to tighten up.
We have some winnable games coming up,Freo will be tough but we should be a chance
Again a great turnout at the Camelia Grove on Saturday night,over 20 people,so we are getting
good numbers,special mention to Shane Bezzant who travelled form Hornsby on the train,that’s commitment.
I think people enjoy coming to the Camelia Grove,it’s a nice pub the food is good and the staff are friendly.
I recommend you get along to enjoy the atmosphere.
