Dreamtime is back in G, but which Ascendant side will show?

After two years on the road, the annual Dreamtime match will return to the MCG this Saturday night, and there is no better stage for Ascendon and Richmond to showcase their talents and abilities as the season draws to a close.

The COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria over the last two years has meant that the 2020 edition was played in Darwin and it was not logically possible to stage the match at the MCG with the 2021 match in Perth.

The commercial success of last year’s match in the West led the Western Australian government to win the right to host the grand final when it became clear that the MCG would not be able to host the summit match for the second year in a row.

It also saved Ascendon, who was the nominated home team, from the potential loss of গ্রহণ 1 million in taking the gate if the match was played in an empty MCG.

After a ten-goal defeat to Sydney Swans in the SCG last Saturday night, there will be a spotlight on the Bombers again this week, after which club legend Matthew Lloyd condemned the team’s performance and reaction.

In Round 8, the bombers were seen turning a corner when they came from behind to beat Hawthorne by 27 points at Marvel Stadium, but all their hard work was wasted in the hands of a swan who was eager to atone for the two weak defeats against them. Queensland Club.

After kicking a goal in the second quarter, the footage angered Lloyd, who was reprimanding Swann veteran Luke Parker Dylan Schill, who suggested that players should have followed Parker to the next center clearance.

Speaking on Channel Nine Sunday footy showHe was also under pressure for the incident where he knocked out Brad Sewell in a 2009 match against Hawthorne where he cold-knocked out Tagger and turned the match in the Bombers’ favor.

When Lloyd made a huge statement on the field, he received a four-match suspension, of which he served only one before stumping a week in his 270-game career.

Captain Dyson Heppel responded to Lloyd’s remarks On the sofa Says Monday night, “Does he want Dylan to plow with someone, give a free kick, give a 50-meter penalty and then score another goal?”

The loss to the Swan marks a disappointing 200th game for the 2011 Rising Star winner, whose 30th birthday was also memorable.

Overall this has been a frustrating season for the Windy Hill men, who have won just two of their first nine games, are 16th in the stairs and will face a side they haven’t lost in almost eight years this Saturday night.

In contrast to the Bombers fight, Richmond recovered 2-4 early in the season, winning their last three matches to sit in eighth place, and the game between the Western Bulldogs and Port Adelaide has been cleared.

After being away from the club for some time for personal reasons, Dustin Martin is back with a push, with consecutive performances on the ground in the win over Collingwood and Hawthorne.

As speculation grows that he will end his career in Sydney, coach Damien Hardwick has said the club will not stand in his way to the north, although he has been signed to Punt Road until the end of 2024, after which he is likely to retire.

In addition, Jack Reeldt is now the second-highest scorer for Richmond, surpassing his cousin Nick for the most goals in his career in recent weeks.

Sadly, there will be a significant absence from the Tigers’ line-up this Saturday night, with Marlion missing the picket after being sacked for one match last weekend for Hawk Dylan Moore.

In a brutal twist, that means he won’t get a chance to wear Guernsey, designed for the club’s Dreamtime match, a fixture they haven’t lost since 2014.

As mentioned at the top of the article, this Saturday night’s match will be the first to be played at MCG since 2019, after the COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria forced the match on the road for the next two seasons.

The Tigers won the 2020 match by two goals at Darwin’s TIO Stadium, and Shy Bolton, who designed the club’s genius for the match, was awarded the Yuken Medal as the best on the ground.

Last year’s match, played at Perth’s Optus Stadium, saw Darcy Parish hold the record for most settlements by an Ascendant player with 44, but his heroism was not enough to keep the Tigers from losing his club by 39 points as they continued their dominance. .

With the return of the fixtures to the MCG, despite the recent field fights of the bombers, there is the expectation of another huge crowd, when there will be interest surrounding the outcome of the federal election, the timing of the match will be counted.

In that note, instead of being shown on Melbourne’s Channel Seven, it will be broadcast nationally on 7mate – excluding Adelaide, which will receive Cro-Saints matches – the main channel will be used for election coverage.

While the Tigers will start the hot favorites to maintain their dominance against the bombers, they will be aware of the team that will come to charge after weeks of criticism for their humble performance against the Swans in Sydney.
