In case you missed it, let’s remember what Jack Riewoldt had to say on AFL 360 this week, as the Tigers, who had lost 3 games in a row and fallen to 9th after the Suns rolled them, prepared to take on 16th placed Final Quarter specialists Collingwood, who hadn’t won a game under Robert Harvey:
Fair enough for 3 quarters as the 2-time defending premiers actually looked the part and Jack kicked his 700th goal, and well done to him…
Then the Tigers matched the game high lead again with 8 minutes to go in the 3rd term, just before Darcy Cameron kicked a goal:
They still led by a comfortable 20 points at 3/4 time:
Aaaaaaaaaand now let’s cue the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme song, as the Pies proceeded to detonate any hope Richmond had of a Threepeat with 7 goals to 1 in the last term:
Good luck if you’re playing Richmond in the last 6 weeks….
Because you’ll need the percentage boost to go with the 4 points.
Just so you know, Richmond are playing Brisbane and Geelong in the next fortnight.
Good luck indeed Richmond, good luck indeed.
