Q3 15:30 Pearce Hanley has tried to start more fights than disposals he has had all game.


Good afternoon folks, welcome to the "Battle Of The Big Cats" Richmond Tigers v Brisbane Lions from the MCG.

Richmond have won 4 out of their last 5. To have improved their win-loss to 5-7. Sitting 14th on the Ladder. Brisbane are languishing in 17th position with just the solitary win for the year so far 1-12 their record, and are in danger of slipping to the Bottom of the Ladder if Richmond hand them another flogging today.

My tip is Richmond to win comfortably by 50+ and Jack Riewoldt to kick 6.


Q1 19:12 Scrappy start here, both sides nervey early, a bit of feeling already between the two sides. Brisbane need to show some fight, they've been bullied all year.

Q1 18:39 Brisbane wearing their old Fitzroy jumper from the 60's today.

Q1 17:33 First score to Ty Vickery snaps a point.

Q1 17:11 Both Captains having a brawl on the wing, Tommy Rockliff v Trent Cotchin.

Q1 16:28 Some very poor skill errors from Richmond early here butchering the ball inside 50.

Q1 15:36 Wow some more poor skill errors this time from Brisbane, both sides look content to the a soccer score set today by the looks of things, 1-0 is a fair chance of being the final score the way both sides are kicking inside 50.
