‘They’re at a crossroads’: Caro’s concern for Richmond

Caroline Wilson says Richmond are at a crossroads after crashing out of the finals on Friday night.

The Tigers lost to Collingwood by 39 points in one of the biggest upsets in recent finals memory after entering the game as premiership favourites.

Caro compared the loss to Essendon’s one-point defeat to Carlton in the 1999 preliminary final.

“(Richmond) were a team that could have but will they (sustain success) now,” she told 3AW Football.

“Walking home (on Friday night), you realise how full of admiration I am for clubs like Hawthorn and Brisbane for what they’ve done.”

Lloydy said “everyone at Essendon” understood they underachieved in 1999.

“I’m still grateful for the one premiership I’ve got because I know how hard they are to win,” he said.

“You’ve got to turn up on prelim and Grand Final day and perform.

“If this was the English Premier League, I’d be a three-time premiership player.”
