    This is a great read.

    Of particular note though for mine, was this:

    No doubt that teams will look to emulate Richmond's success moving forwards, and we all saw it's effect of Martin's scores this year.

    Might be something to consider at the start of next season, if teams begin to move away from the contested stoppage game, it could have a big effect on those premium mids.

    Very interesting read, makes plenty of sense, cool to think that every club does this sort of analysis on every opposition. I'd be interested to read debriefs on other teams too
