Richmond win big in Bendigo

A terrific team performance by the VFL Tigers saw them kick 23 goals in a 98-point demolition of Bendigo at Queen Elizabeth Oval on Saturday evening.

The Tigers dominated the midfield, had an even spread of goalkickers and were resolute in defence.

Liam McBean jumped to the top of the VFL goalkicking leaderboard with another bag of five. The tall forward made the most of his opportunities and came alive in the third term, slotting two set shots from tight on the boundary.

“We’ve stressed the point that if we can get it in there, we’re always going to score or keep it in there,” McBean said post-game, “so we were lucky enough to get a lot of inside 50s tonight and it showed.”

Sam Lloyd also impressed with four goals and was rarely beaten in one-on-one contests inside 50. He regularly out-bodied his opponent to score or set up teammates and had 23 disposals.

Chris Knights and Ben Lennon starred in the Richmond midfield and both set a high standard with their disposal. Knights collected a team-high 29 possessions, had 6 clearances, worked hard to get forward and booted two goals. Lennon also hit the scoreboard in his 25-disposal game and chased hard for six tackles.

Was disappointing, but as per all year, teams with a big ruckman, and big forwards, we just can't compete. Richmond actually moved the ball really well, but with McBean, Stephenson, Hampson and Edwards up forward, we can't stop that.

Two games to go, and it will only get uglier probably....

Melbourne City relived with two winless seasons then folding.
I feel sorry for Aussie Jones who has busted a gut off the field. Came close twice and should have beaten Casey.

Unfortunately "poker machine" money talks when it comes to the VFL. No pokies, no team.

I wouldn't mind sitting up in the club with a few frothies each home game!! Outstanding facilities at Eureka mate, and certainly something Bendigo should have strived for when they started out, but Council are idiots over here.

I'll be heading back to local footy I reckon.
