Hartlett's deliberate out of bounds and Duursma's dropped mark were karmic events.
Wish Caddy was out there.
He certainly would have got stuck into them for choking.
would have loved to see it

I love the way Bakes thrashed the whole port forward line by himself. Our other back men were able to have some time off to freshen themselves up for next week.
The front on tackle when he pulled Dixon down was typical off his night. Thrashed and bashed anyone who stood in his way or the ball.

He ripped the power out...he’s a powerhouse our little bloke

In all my time supporting RFC I don't think I've ever been so wrong about a player. Had him pegged as a slow small forward making up the numbers when he got a game. When they sent him back I thought they were mad.

He's now the type of player that when you see he's got the ball, or about to get it, you relax a bit.

After the Tiges won, and headed down to the Tiger cheer squad a lady in the crowd held up a sign that said "Marry my Daughter Liam Baker". Then she turned it around and it said "She's only 21". She was pointing to someone in front of her but I don't think the cameras caught who she was pointing at. The boys knew though and were pushing Liam forward. :))
Just watched the 4th again. She had a sign saying marry my daughter. When she turned it around it was something about Noah. Cant faulta Balta I think.

But so good to see Richmond faithful at the ground.

He is quality.
Why wouldn't we try him as a midfielder??

The thing about Bakes is that he will have a fair dinkum crack in any position you asked him to play.
The little fella with the huge heart is going to have a second medal swinging around his neck on Saturday night next week.

Does he get to become the #1 villain of Australia by blanketing The Chosen One and ensuring The Chosen One doesn't get one last Premiership?

My God that left foot to Riewoldt with a couple of minutes to go highlights his skills. What an endorsement for picking pure footballers over athletes.

Elite hands. Always clean, smart, and as tough as broady or Vlas. Relishes contact and seems to be a great bloke who just loves the game. Looking forward to a long Richmond career from this guy. What a ripper!
