Game Review

After a spirited showing against Essendon the previous week, the Blues were expected to win this game. They were clear favourites despite have quite a few regular senior players unavailable. There had been calls for Francis Bourke to be sacked as Richmond's coach, this was real backs to the wall stuff from the Tigers.
