Richmond has won the AFL Grand Final for the first time in 37 years.
Despite the Crows’ strong start – kicking two quick goals and giving them an early lead over the Tigers – the Premiership was out of their reach.
Rory Sloan and Eddie Betts secured the game’s first two goals for Adelaide, but Richmond wasn’t letting them get a way without a fight.
By half-time the Tigers had a nine-point lead over the Crows – much to the delight of their fans in the crowd.
It was a sign of what was to come, with Richmond walking away as this year’s Premiership winners with a final score of 16.12.108 to 8.12.60.
