Tigers down Bombers in scrappy affair

24 sierpień 2012 14:36

In a match that never reached great heights, the Tigers were in control for the majority of the encounter with their inaccuracy in front of goal the only thing keeping the Bombers in it.

Essendon closed to within 18 points midway through the third quarter but never really threatened to win the match as the Tigers ran out easy 13.24 (102) to 8.9 (57) victors.

Veteran Shane Tuck worked tirelessly to gather a game-high 33 touches in a best-on-ground performance, while Brett Deledio (33) and Bachar Houli (26) were dominant through the midfield and off the half-back line.

Trent Cotchin showed flashes of brilliance with his 31 disposals, but failed to make the most of his chances in front of goal with five behinds to his name.

Jack Riewoldt also struggled, but did manage three goals from his eight shots to move up to 59 for the season - one behind Coleman Medal leader Matthew Pavlich.

The only downside for the Tigers was the report on Shane Edwards, who was booked for striking Angus Monfries, although there appeared to be little in it.

Essendon's cause wasn't helped by yet another soft tissue injury with Alwyn Davey substituted early in the second term with a hamstring injury.

Captain Jobe Watson had 11 touches in the first term, but faded from then on to finish with just 20, while Dyson Heppell was a strong contributor with 28 disposals off the half-back line.

They defended poorly with Richmond able to virtually walk the ball into their attacking 50 unopposed as they finished with a staggering 31 more inside 50s (71-40).
