Richmond’s win in round 13 points to Tigers getting back to their best

The Tigers came out of the blocks after their bye against Port Adelaide, scoring five goals to two in the first quarter, which would equate to a 12-point win.

In what turned out to be a territory fight, the ball spent more time in Richmond’s front half to see them count the inner 50 64-48.

The messy nature of the match left both sides showing poor efficiency within 50, Richmond’s 43.8 per cent and Port Adelaide’s 35.4 per cent, both well below the season average.

Damien Hardwick took part in a match they had to win to keep in touch with the top eight and had the game on his terms for bigger pieces when the Tigers were victorious.

There has been much debate over the past week as to whether Richmond is back with the Tigers of yesteryear, and the football world won’t really know until the pointed end of the season.

However, their kind of desperation and its propulsion was evident on Thursday night. Richmond had 68 one percent, some 13 above their season average, beating Power’s tally of 47.

To propel it forward, the Tigers took eight bounces compared to just one for Port Adelaide, the side of Hardwick demonstrating their crucial ability of conquering territory.

It was the Tigers of yesteryear in round 13, can they now keep that up for the rest of the season?
