Tigers, Crows won't believe the hype ahead of grand final

Captain Trent Cotchin has not put a foot wrong in Richmond's charge to the AFL grand final

ALL-Australian masters Aussie rules player and rabid Richmond fan Michael Sunderland watched beloved Tigers win its first flag in 37 years.

"It comes down to - for mine in big games and finals - it comes down to a number of things, and I won't go into those now, but they're things we talk about as a group and we've spoken about previously".

"Who would have thought we finished 13th past year, beaten by (113) points in the last round and now we're f***ing premiers", Tigers forward Jack Riewoldt told Channel Seven. "Best thing in the world". "I'm proud of each and every player that played today".

It was their first premiership win since 1980, a drought of 37 years. "This is a dream come true", Martin said.

Defenders Alex Rance and Bachar Houli were also outstanding, while teenager Jack Graham starred with three goals in just his fifth AFL match.

The emotion spilled over in forward Jack Riewoldt's on-field interview with Richmond legend Matthew Richardson on Channel 7.

Then 90 seconds later, when Kane Lambert added the Tigers' ninth, the lead was out to 28 points and the wave was threatening to wash the Crows away.

Rance's spoil on Taylor Walker four minutes into the second term gave Richmond possession and Riewoldt soon marked at the other end.

That gap was reversed in a tight second quarter in which the Crows were left goalless, with Richmond winning 6.4 40 to Adelaide's 4.7 31 at half time.

Riewoldt kicked his first goal from an acute angle, the Crows could not respond and the Tigers ramped up the pressure.

Adelaide only scored one goal in the third quarter to Richmond's five - leaving a gap of 34 points at the final break.

Martin was now dominating and captain Trent Cotchin was a battering ram at the stoppages. Richmond looked hot, and Sloane's goal was against the run of play, but Hugh Greenwood's goal, which really just fell into his lap near the goal square, shifted the momentum back the way of the Crows before quarter time.

Adelaide captain Walker replied at 14 minutes, their first goal since the 26-minute mark of the opening term, but it was their only major of the third quarter.

Riewoldt, who like Cotchin, plays a far more team-oriented style of football than he once did, kicked two goals and could have had many more.

Again, the cornerstone was All Australian captain Alex Rance, who not only variously nullified Crows skipper Walker and the unsafe Josh Jenkins, but was so effective at taking intercept marks that Adelaide coach on Pyke was forced to shift Andy Ottens on to him as a defensive forward and drag him back towards goal.
