Richmond Tigers

Richmond poised to finish 2014 without a late change

JESSE HOGAN 7:45pm Richmond may not end this year with a finals berth, but it is on track to end it with a unique achievement: going through an entire season without making a late change.

Tigers face tough call on Tyrone Vickery

Richmond president says team must be better

Eight wins in a row, but Richmond president Peggy O'Neal isn't counting any chickens.

CAROLINE WILSON Peggy O'Neal says winning run will not ‘blind’ club.

How should the Tigers tackle their final hurdle?

Richmond has come a long way since it last met the Swans.

ROHAN CONNOLLY Little has changed in Sydney's world since it last played Richmond. But for the Tigers, who haven't lost a game since, it's a lifetime.

Joel Selwood, Lance Franklin cleared by AFL match review panel

Cleared: Joel Selwood.

JESSE HOGAN No players are facing suspension heading into the final round of the home-and-away season.

Damien Hardwick

MATT MURNANE It's still one week away for Essendon and every club above them, but for eighth-placed Richmond, finals start this Saturday against ladder-leading Sydney.

Quiet day expected for match review panel

JESSE HOGAN The match review panel is not expected to have a big say on selection for the last round of the home-and-away season, with few incidents overtly demanding scrutiny.

Richmond's mission impossible still possible after victory over St Kilda

Luke Delaney of the Saints and Jack Riewoldt of the Tigers compete for the ball.

MATT MURNANE Richmond's Mission Impossible might yet turn out to be exactly that. Only one team (Brisbane in 1995) has come from so far down the ladder so late in the season to steal a finals spot, since the top eight system was introduced. From third last in round 14, to 8th by round 23.

Brownlow Medal bolters

Richmond's Dustin Martin is 101-1 to win the Brownlow Medal. With 13 chances to poll, he is worth a flutter.

WILL BRODIE This might be the year in which a player unfavoured by punters is awarded the AFL's highest individual honour.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says Tigers are learning to win the tight ones

Reece Conca looks happy at the prospect of a return to the Richmond team.

LIAM MANNIX After years of playing as if they didn’t quite know how to win, the Tigers are learning to close out the tight ones, says coach Damien Hardwick.

Richmond resurgence rides on Alex Rance's football smarts

Alex Rance.

ROHAN CONNOLLY Athletes who can play football are a dime-a-dozen in the AFL age. What’s perhaps at an even greater premium these days are genuine footballers who happen to be athletic. And Richmond might have got lucky on that score with key defender Alex Rance.

Richmond's Alex Rance could have joined Hawks

Alex Rance.

Richmond's Alex Rance has revealed he met Hawthorn to discuss a potential trade before recommitting to the Tigers.

Tigers of old, and new, enjoy a hot streak

The Tigers have won seven in a row.

JON PIERIK Just two months ago, as Richmond counted three wins alongside 10 defeats, Tony Jewell, the club's last premiership coach, vented his displeasure. He was critical of the club's game plan, in particular the chip-kicking and indirect style, and said the on-field leaders needed to take a stand.

Trent Cotchin's new captaincy style the key to Tigers' turnaround

Richmond captain Trent Cotchin.

LIAM MANNIX If Richmond's hot streak is built on raised training standards, then that in turn may be built on the hard line club captain Trent Cotchin has started to take with teammates.

AFL's review system under fire again

Dustin Martin of the Tigers wins the ball in front of Luke Brown of the Crows.

AISHA DOW It was never going to be an easy task to find an unnamed street in one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, even to honour late Tigers football legend Jack Dyer.

Seventh heaven: Richmond's gutsy win keeps finals dream alive

Ben Griffiths of the Tigers competes with Josh Jenkins of the Crows at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.

ASHLEY PORTER Richmond's gutsy 10-point win against Adelaide in front of 50,459 hostile fans at Adelaide Oval last night must surely rate as one of its most crucial in recent times.

Are the Tigers too easily pleased?

Ivan Maric celebrates Richmond's round 20 win over Essendon.

GARRY LYON The Richmond Football Club is gaining a reputation for being far too easily pleased. They won't like reading this but what other conclusion are we to draw from their abysmal start to the 2014 season, given the comments of four of their most senior players in recent weeks.

Tigers walk taller alongside Ivan Maric, a spiritual leader

Ivan Maric has been at the heart of a belated Richmond charge that faces its biggest do-or-die moment against the Crows.

PETER HANLON That Ivan Maric makes Richmond better is an understanding that reaches beyond football, draping a sense of how things should be done over this famous club like, well, a mullet spilling over broad shoulders.

Business as usual at Tigerland, says coach Damien Hardwick

Damien Hardwick says the mood at Punt Road is no different to what it had been at the club's June nadir.

DANIEL CHERNY Richmond might be within sight of a Lazarus-style finals berth, but coach Damien Hardwick said you wouldn't know it from inside the club's walls.

Lee Crossley All of a sudden Richmond has a (very) outside chance of making the finals. But will the dreams end after Friday night's clash against Essendon?

Chief executive Gillon McLachlan admits the AFL erred in its handling of Reece Conca's "appalling" hit on Devon Smith last weekend.

Richmond's respected Nathan Foley reaches 150-game milestone

Nathan Foley is tackled by Brendon Goddard last season.

JESSE HOGAN Nathan Foley is no longer one of Richmond's elite midfielders, but with injuries now being kept at bay, the understated 28-year-old is producing performances that are delighting his coach.

Gillon McLachlan says the AFL's match review panel set for review
