My team (Lions) would have been poorer without Luke Power or Simon Black. Richmond Tigers are a team on their way up though this was a more even match. Either side could have won it but our forwards seem to be disadvantaged in a contest. I nearly made the trip to attend this game for a long weekend, but had to commit to a meeting on Monday instead of taking that day off.
