This was clearly evident on the night. It was like Melbourne had an extra 8 players on the ground. Everywhere the ball was in dispute they outnumbered us; all over the ground. That is work rate; Melbourne players worked, ours didn't. It was a very un Richmond like performance.Melbourne simply out worked us around the ground - had extras at the drop of the ball everywhere.
It's as simple as that. Dimma will be all over this. His number 1 rule is more jumpers in the screen and that didn't happen Saturday night.
Dimma was not happy at the presser. He was still measured but you could tell he was not happy. I reckon that lack of work rate had a lot do with his unhappiness.
