FULL TIME

Richmond has kicked away to a 71-point win in front of 81,046 fans.

Shane Edwards won the Yiooken Medal for best afield. He is the first Aboriginal player to win the award.

Mark Williams said the Bombers paid Richmond too much respect.

“They looked like they were standoffish and a little bit in awe of the premiership team,” Choco said.

HALF TIME 

Richmond lead by 31 points at the main break.

Jake Stringer had a chance to cut the margin to seven points midway through the second term, but his miss let the Tigers reclaim momentum.

Mark Williams said that was the turning point.

Dreamtime at the G is a spectacle to behold, and we can thank new AFL Legend Kevin Sheedy for it.

Premiership coach Mark ‘Choco’ Williams will join 3AW Football as an expert commentator for the special occasion.

The Tigers will want to keep touch with top spot, while the Bombers will be out to keep their resurgence going.
