And as mentioned, not a peep from the commentators.
I am happy to go on record as saying the first four goals after half time in the PF were all amongst the best you will see.
Remember we were behind and it was a high pressure game.
First...PrestiaCotchinEdwards tackle and release the ball for Caddy to pass to Prestia who hits Lynch lace out. A classic RFC 2019 goal.
Second...We disposess Cats with tackling on the wing, Short dodges two Cats and kicks to a contest without fear . JR does a sublime tap to Martin who reads it perfectly. Another classic RFC 2019 goal.
Third...Gryan whoever passes to Selwood, three Tigers disposess him and Bolton hits Castagna with a sublime pass splitting two defenders without fear.. Another classic.
Fourth...Edwards wins loose ball, cooly passes to Caddy, passes to Prestia who has outrun his opponent who kicks to top of the square, Lynch v three Cats, no fear, Lynch marks and wins free.
All goals were fabulous. Very little recognition. Commentators do not understand the Richmond way. No pausing, no need for perfect target, trust in team mate to contest hard, fierce tackling, constant running and honouring team mates effort to be available.
We are goals better than all other teams....just wish George could kick and handball.
