IT HAS become a tradition at Punt Road. For the last couple of years, before every main training session, Richmond pair Shai Bolton and Daniel Rioli will gather around assistant coach Andrew McQualter and find out what that day's competition will be.

Close to his worst game for the year. Kept waiting for him to put his stamp on the game and just didn’t. Disappointing.

Has another level he can get to. Has gotten better every year so I wouldn't doubt him.

So bummed by his performance. For whatever reason it was just about Shai's worst game for the season at the time we needed him most. He's had a great year but no escaping that was really disappointing.

He looked like he had his mind elsewhere.
Stavecich held him constantly.
Why doesn't the umpires see it??

Actually I was making light of the time leading up to 3pm training today and if Shai would appear....... but now that you mention it, a countdown to gametime would be good IMO if it can be done? Maybe others would disagree?
Following on from last night, I'd be now in favor of looking for a countdown clock to Round 1 2023.

When is the fixture coming out?
