  • Richmond AFL defeated Greater Western Sydney by 89 Points

 

Glenelg Tigers

Glenelg Tigers have swept aside 33 years of heartache and defeated Port Adelaide Magpies in the season 2019 SANFL Grand Final.

Glenelg last won a Premiership in 1986 and since that time have lost 5 Grand Finals.

Glenelg led all day and piled on 5 goals after Half-Time to defeat Port Adelaide by 28 points.

 

Richmond VFL

Richmond Tigers has defeated Williamstown Seagulls in the VFL Grand Final by 3 Points.

Richmond kicked 4 goals in the first quarter against Williamstown who did not register a point. However, Williamstown got down to business in the second quarter and restricted Richmond to just 4 points in the second quarter.

In the third quarter, both sides were locked into a struggle with only 1 goal scored by both sides.

Final quarter saw Williamstown blow their chances kicking 4 goals and 5 behinds against Richmond’s straight kicking with 3 goals.

Inaccurate kicking cost Williamstown the Grand Final as Richmond prevailed by 3 points and took home the Premiership.

Marlion Pickett

Only 6 days before the AFL Grand Final Marlion Pickett kicked 1 goal and won the Norm Goss Medal for best on ground in the Richmond Tigers VFL Grand Final win over Williamstown by 3 Points.

Marlion Pickett was a key factor in the Tigers holding off a fierce late Williamstown challenge.

Marlion Pickett played a pivotal role in Richmond’s stunning comeback victory from 40 points down at three-quarter-time against Essendon in their qualifying final, kicking two majors from 22 touches to help see the Tigers through to a preliminary final against Port Melbourne.

Marlion Pickett was pick no.13 in May’s NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft from South Fremantle and has cemented himself in Richmond’s AFL side for season 2020 and beyond.

 

Richmond AFL

Richmond has won its 12th Premiership defeating Greater Western Sydney by 89 points at the MCG in front of 100,014 people.

Richmond blew Greater Western Sydney out of the water from the opening bounce by keeping the football in the forward 50 which stopped Greater Western Sydney from scoring.

In a thoroughly dominating performance Richmond kicked 2 goals in the first quarter and then 5 goals in each of the other three quarters.

However, the best part of Richmond’s crushing win was when Dustin Martin hand passed to debutant Marlion Pickett who kicked his first goal.
