Last round, Jack Riewoldt kicked ten goals for Richmond, against West Coast, so they were on their way up despite being on the bottom of the ladder with two wins and ten losses until now.
The way my team has been playing lately, I didn't expect them to win. It was Brendan Fevola's 200th game but even he had trouble living up to expectations, fumbling badly a number of times. Still, there was some brightness, with Aaron Cornelius proving himself worthy of inclusion in the team.
