HALF TIME 

Richmond leads by a point at the main break.

But the story of the half was an injury to gun Giant Dylan Shiel.

Shiel copped a hit to the head from Richmond captain Trent Cotchin while chasing a ground ball.

He did not return after apparently failing a concussion test.

Cotchin has already been fined by the MRP twice this season, so even a fine would see him suspended for Richmond’s next match.

Richmond star Dustin Martin spoke exclusively to 3AW after winning the VicSuper Player of the Year award.

Martin told Tiger legend Matthew Richardson he wouldn’t be human if he hadn’t thought a bit about what will transpire on Brownlow night.

THE BUILD-UP

Richmond’s long-awaited return to the Preliminary Final is here.

A mammoth crowd is expected at the MCG on Saturday – almost exclusively wearing Yellow & Black – but with it comes an immense weight of expectation.

The fans are ravenous for a first Grand Final appearance for 35 years.

But GWS will come out burning from their shattering loss to the Bulldogs in the Prelims last season.

The stage is set for an absolute cracker – and 3AW Football has a line-up to match the occasion.

Rex, Jimmy, Lethal, and Caro are just some of the big names bringing you all the action on and off the field at the MCG.
