    • Will the tigers kick appallingly again

    • Ah, its a new Richmond. Turns up for half a game and then puts the cue away.One can't help wonder about game fixing, particularly as the tattooed wonder boy has gone missing?

    • You have to wonder which Richmond is going to turn up these days. This looks like the committed tiges as opposed to the 'attend' the game team that turned up last week or the free running team from ...

    • Looks like North uncapitulated.

      Stephen | June 08, 2014, 9:49PM
    • And obviously it took half a game for the roos to shake off the jet lag. So next time the weagles are here, can we expect to see a better showing in the second half?

    FULL TIME - North Melbourne 17.14 (116) Richmond 13.10 (88)

    North Melbourne rallied from 35 points down at half time to hit the front in the third quarter and go on to win by 28 points at Etihad Stadium. 

    Drew Petrie booted four goals and Brent Harvey three from his 25 possessions as North climbed into seventh on the ladder. 

    Richmond played scintillating football in the second quarter, with Dustin Martin booting all four of his goals for the game. 

    But the Tiger backline was hapless under the high ball in the second half as the Roos' forwards out-pointed the Tiger backs. 

    Andrew Swallow and Levi Greenwood had the high numbers with 29 touches each, while Todd Goldstein had 20 to go with his 46-23 hit-out victory against Ivan Maric. 

    Bachar Houli collected 30 touches for Richmond.

    FULL TIME - NM 17.14 (116) RICH 13.10 (88)

    It's a great night for Roos fans and yet another punch in the guts for Richmond fans. 

    Q4 30.00 - NM 17.14 (116) RICH 13.10 (88)

    Bad news for both teams. Chaplin might be in trouble for a dangerous tackle and Adams has a possible concussion. 

    Q4 26.00 - NM 17.13 (115) RICH 13.10 (88)

    Riewoldt gets a push in the back free after Thompson fell on him in a pack. 

    He gets up and kicks a set shot goal. 

    Q4 21.30 - NM 17.12 (114) RICH 12.9 (81)

    North get an instant reply as Goldstein kicks a set shot goal. 

    Q4 19.15 - NM 16.12 (108) RICH 12.9 (81)

    Riewoldt marks on the lead and goals from 45m out on a 45-degree angle. 

    Still 7.15 to play on the count-down clock. 

    Q4 17.45 - NM 16.12 (108) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Nahas marks and goals from 35m out. That's two for the former Tiger. 

    Q4 16.30 - NM 15.12 (102) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Riewoldt marks...no! Free kick to Thompson!

    Riewoldt was only 20m out but the umpire said he infringed. 


    Q4 14.15 - NM 15.12 (102) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Downfield free kick to Petrie for a hold. 

    He goals from 35m out on a slight angle! 

    Q4 10.00 - NM 14.11 (95) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Long ball into the Kangaroos attack...Ziebell and Harvey all on their own...no defence anywhere!

    Harvey runs into the open goal!

    North surely home now! 

    Q4 7.00 - NM 13.11 (89) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Dea is pinged holding the ball!

    He's on a tight angle, wrong side for a right footer in the pocket....and Richmond give away 50m! Maric talks his way into giving Ziebell the guarantee from the goalsqaure!

    That might be the killer blow! 

    Q4 5.00 - NM 12.11 (83) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Nahas spears a pass to Petrie but it's spoiled away and he can't hold the grab!

    Cotchin is being treated on the bench. 


    Q4 1.15 - NM 12.11 (83) RICH 11.9 (75)

    Vickery takes a big contested mark straight from the centre clearance!

    But his set shot from 40m slides wide right. 

    Q4 START - NM 12.11 (83) RICH 11.8 (74)

    Underway in the last

    THREE QUARTER TIME - NM 12.11 (83) RICH 11.8 (74)

    North Melbourne stormed to the front with eight goals, but an inexplicable miss from Drew Petrie and gift goal to Richmond after a Liam Anthony turn-over keeps the Tigers in touch at the last change. 

    North wiped out its half-time deficit with an eight goal run. 

    Petrie, prior to his point-blank miss, kicked three goals as part of the surge. 

    Levi Greenwood is North's disposal leader with 22 touches while Brent Harvey has 20. 

    Bachar Houli and Dustin Martin (24 each) are Richmond's only ball-winners with more than 20 touches. 


    THREE QUARTER TIME - NM 12.11 (83) RICH 11.8 (74)

    Black finds Harvey in the forward pocket. 

    Harvey's shot is on a tight angle 45m out...he puts it across the face for a point. 

    The siren sounds with the ball on the wing. 

    Q3 28.15 - NM 12.10 (82) RICH 11.8 (74)

    Martin runs through the right flank...one-two with Maric...shot on goal slides wide right for a point. 

    3.10 to go on the count-down clock. 

    Q3 25.15 - NM 12.10 (82) RICH 11.7 (73)

    A gift for Richmond as Dea goals!

    Liam Anthony went to kick across his defensive 50m and Dea spoiled Adams, roving the spill and kicking a goal. 

    Dal Santo is back on after having his shoulder assessed on the North Melbourne bench. 

    Q3 24.00 - NM 12.10 (82) RICH 10.7 (67)

    Riewoldt dribbles through a behind from the left forward pocket. Richmond's first score of the quarter. 

    Q3 22.15 - NM 12.9 (81) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Petrie marks 20m out! He's got Chaplin beat every time!

    And then he hooks the kick! Could that be the turning point the Tigers need?

    Nick Dal Santo is having his shoulder assessed on the bench. 

    Richmond activates the sub. Ben Griffiths off and Ben Lennon comes on.

    Q3 19.45 - NM 12.8 (80) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Chaplin pushes Petrie...free kick!

    Petrie lines up from 35m out in front...and kicks the goal!

    Eight, eight goals in a row for North Melbourne! 

    Q3 18.30 - NM 11.8 (74) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Score review as Houli goes up to spoil on the line. 

    He got there comfortably, just a behind. 

    North bring it back in...Nahas pushed for a free...play on to advantage! Cunnington runs in to an open goal!

    And a melee breaks out with Nahas at the heart of it! 

    Q3 16.15- NM 10.7 (67) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Who'd be a Richmond fan. North get the clearance and break into forward 50m. 

    It's going to bounce and sit up for a player on run onto the ball. 

    Who else, but the ex-Tiger Robin Nahas!

    Footy is such a cruel game. 

    Nahas goals from 30m out on the run! North in front!

    Q3 14.30 - NM 9.7 (61) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Ziebell marks! 25m out in front!

    Richmond's defence offering no resistance at all!

    Ziebell goals! North within a kick! 

    Q3 10.30 - NM 8.7 (55) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Atley launches an attack off half back. 

    Harvey drives the ball through the middle. 

    Long to Petrie who marks 15m out!

    Petrie goals! 

    Q3 8.00 - NM 7.7 (49) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Petrie spoils Rance who had a big grab on the ball...umpire says play on, no mark!

    Petrie roves and kicks high...runs under his own kick to make a contest 15m out!

    It spills and Bastinac is unguarded, with Harvey there to shepherd for him as he runs into goal!

    Three in a row now for North! 

    Q3 6.00 - NM 6.7 (43) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Petrie marks 45m out and a 50m penalty will walk him to the top of the goalsquare. 

    It's happening! The North comeback is underway! 

    Q3 3.30 - NM 5.7 (37) RICH 10.6 (66)

    Houli scrags Harvey in the goalsquare and the first goal of the second half goes to North Melbourne. 

    Q3 START - NM 4.7 (31) RICH 10.6 (66)

    North Melbourne has subbed out Majak Daw and substitute Liam Anthony is into the game. It's a tactical change as Daw is not injured. 

    HALF TIME - NM 4.7 (31) RICH 10.6 (66)

    That half belonged to Dustin Martin. 

    Martin has four goals from his 19 possessions, while Bachar Houli has 19 touches for Richmond and Matt Thomas 16. 

    Levi Greenwood leads the Kangaroos with 15, the next best Brent Harvey with just 12. 

    Richmond leads inside-50s 29-22, contested possessions 72-70, clearances 17-16 and tackles 35-34. 


    HALF TIME - NM 4.7 (31) RICH 10.6 (66)

    An amazing half of footy comes to an end with Richmond up by 35 points. 

    Q2 28.00 - NM 4.6 (30) RICH 10.5 (65)

    Foley running down the right flank...into the forward 50m...to Dustin Martin close to goal...he puts through a banana! Four for Dustin Martin!

    Q2 26.45 - NM 4.6 (30) RICH 9.5 (59)

    Riewoldt takes a strong contested mark as Thompson tries to disguise a punch as a spoil!

    Riewoldt lines up 20m out and puts through the goal!

    The MRP might find insufficient force for Thompson's spoil given the Tiger spearhead was able to get up and take his kick. 

    Q2 22.00 - NM 4.6 (30) RICH 8.5 (53)

    North get one back!

    Harvey dropped what he should have taken in the forward pocket but kept hustling for the loose ball.

    He soccered it into a pack where Bastinac had clean hands to pick up and snap a goal! 

    Q2 20.30 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 8.5 (53)

    Maric marks in the right forward pocket 25m out. 

    He's thinking set shot. 

    And the confidence is justified as he guides through the goal!

    Richmond now out by 29 points!

    There is still 7.02 to go on the count-down clock so there's no respite in sight for North. 

    Q2 17.15 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 7.5 (47)

    Another Richmond goal with Vickery involved!

    He bought the ball to ground in the forward pocket, Martin roved best and ran around onto his right foot...snapping a goal!

    North look shell-shocked! 

    Q2 15.00 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 6.5 (41)

    Hansen with a push-out...free kick to Vickery!

    Top of the goalsquare...he puts it through!

    Richmodn with three goals in a row now and they're out to a handy break!

    Q2 12.45 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 5.5 (35)

    Vickery can't mark 25m out but the ball spills off hands over the back to Martin who soccers off the ground from the top of the goalsquare!

    The Tigers are making a move here! 

    Q2 10.15 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 4.4 (28)

    Kick to the top of the square marked by Edwards!

    North defence caught flat-footed by one of the shortest players on the park. 

    Edwards goals from 15m out! 

    Q2 5.15 - NM 3.6 (24) RICH 3.4 (22)

    North peppering...ex-Tiger Nahas strains for distance from outside 50m and kicks a ball to the line...off hands for a point. 

    Q2 1.45 - NM 3.4 (22) RICH 3.4 (22)

    Cunnington gets a free kick for holding the ball 45m out on a 45-degree angle. 

    His 50m set shot is across the face, off hands and through for a rushed behind. 

    Q2 START - NM 3.3 (21) RICH 3.4 (22)

    It's been a cracking pace so who will prevail when the game slows down? 

    QTR TIME - NM 3.3 (21) RICH 3.4 (22)

    Brent Harvey has eight touches and a goal while Dustin Martin has nine touches and a goal for Richmond. 

    Other leaders for North are Hansen, Mullett and Gibson each with seven disposals, while Houli, Miles and Petterd have eight each for Richmond. 

    Richmond leads inside-50s 14-10 while North leads contested possessions 38-32. 

    QTR TIME - NM 3.3 (21) RICH 3.4 (22)

    A high-octane first quarter ends with Richmond ahead by a rushed behind. 

    Q1 28.30 - NM 3.3.(21) RICH 3.3 (21)

    Harvey goals for North Melbourne after Daw crashed the pack and Dal Santo roved to perfection!

    Smooth skills from Dal Santo to play Harvey through for a 20m running goal! 

    Q1 25.00 - NM 2.2 (14) RICH 3.3 (21)

    "This is grand final pressure" says Bartlett. 

    To be fair it has been a high intensity game, it's not the most overstated thing he's said so far tonight by a long shot. 

    Q1 25.00 - NM 2.2 (14) RICH 3.3 (21)

    North Melbourne run the ball into the forward 50m and with a chain of handballs, Petrie feeds it over to Black to goal from the square. 

    Q1 23.45 - NM 1.2 (8) RICH 3.3 (21)

    Thomas holds his ground to mark an attempted clearance from North Melbourne. 

    He lines up from 40m out on a 45-degree angle and goals! 

     

    Q1 20.15 - NM 1.2 (8) RICH 2.3 (15)

    North sweep end to end with Daw marking in the centre square and handing off to Mullett in full flight. 

    Mullett takes a 55m shot...hits the post! 

    Q1 19.00 - NM 1.1 (7) RICH 2.3 (15)

    Cotchin wrapped up in a gang tackle 20m from goal. 

    Richmond are playing a frantic, desperate style. Sustaining this intensity might be impossible. 

    Andrew Swallow is off with what looks like a sore back or hip. 


    Q1 16.45 - NM 1.1 (7) RICH 2.3 (15)

    Daw runs and bounces from the wing up to the forward 50m. 

    Dea chased Daw just enough to district the North man. 

    Daw shinned his kick and it rolled through for a point!

    Richmond sweep to the other end where Martin snaps a goal after two huge forward line tackles!

     

    Q1 13.00 - NM 1.0 (6) RICH 1.3 (9)

    North on the board after a chain of handballs around the top of the 50m arc. 

    Greenwood was the free man on the end of the chain and he rolled onto his left to kick a 45m goal on a 45-degree angle!


    Q1 12.00 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 1.3 (9)

    Richmond has made a tough-tackling start to the game and North seem pressured. 

    Cotchin lets himself down with a kick out of bounds on the full on the wing. 

    North Melbourne with a chain of handballs...Adams is buried with a big tackle and Richmond clear. 

    Q1 9.30 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 1.3 (9)

    Riewoldt swoops on a spilled ball 40m from goal in the left pocket but his hurried snap on goal is wide left for a point. 

    Q1 8.15 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 1.2 (8)

    Big mark by Griffiths on the 50m who comes down on his right ankle sore. 

    He opts to go backwards rather than shoot for goal. 

    Morris marks after some chip passing...and is knocked over for a 50m penalty!

    Brad Scott already with an unhappy look on his face in the coaching box. 

    Morris gets a shallow 50m penalty...he's only been taken to 30m out...and kicks the goal!

    Kevin Barlett breaks into the club song on the Fox Footy commentary. Might as well get it in early! 

    Q1 5.30 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 0.1 (1)

    Riewoldt marks on the lead 30m out on a 45-degree angle. 

    He sprays it wide right!

    Horrible shot and it could be a tone-setter for the night. 

    Q1 4.00 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 0.0 (0)

    Sam Gibson gets ironed out by an attempted spoil from Batchelor. 

    The ball is out of bounds on the wing. 


    Q1 1.00 - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 0.0 (0)

    Firrito and Vickery wrestling off the ball and the former has been bloodied in the scuffle. 

    North Melbourne get a free kick in the backline. 

    Q1 START - NM 0.0 (0) RICH 0.0 (0)

    Underway at Etihad Stadium! 

    Handshakes between the captains and coin toss in the middle of the ground. 

    Kevin Bartlett dressed like he belongs in the cheer squad is behind the microphone with Mal Brown and Dale Weightman. 

    Fair warning - tonight's live blog has "pressed red for Kev" and will check in to see if the parochial Kevin Bartlett commentary feed can add something to the broadcast.

    • amazing how these VFL teams capitulate the week after a visit to WA, yet WA teams are forced to do it time and time again. It is lucky the big cashed up teams of the VFL only come to Perth once and that is never within in the last couple of rounds so they will be in top gear for the finals.

      Got to keep those interstate teams involved as they have to $$$ support the too many teams operating out of Victoria, except GWS which will struggle to take a grip in West Sydney for many, many years.

      • I think having been in the AFL now for so many years the Travel is no longer an issue to Interstate clubs. They have thier methods worked out. What a petty and silly comment. Roos have been winning Interstate, Pies have a proud record on the road as do the Cats

      • And obviously it took half a game for the roos to shake off the jet lag. So next time the weagles are here, can we expect to see a better showing in the second half?

    • You have to wonder which Richmond is going to turn up these days. This looks like the committed tiges as opposed to the 'attend' the game team that turned up last week or the free running team from two weeks ago.

      The umps paid 16 frees in the quarter which is pretty bizarre

      • Ah, its a new Richmond. Turns up for half a game and then puts the cue away.

        One can't help wonder about game fixing, particularly as the tattooed wonder boy has gone missing?
