Free Kick Ladder: Post Round 8 – Tiger troubles roll on as Dogs go top

Richmond remain cast adrift at the bottom of the AFL Free Kick ladder after Round 8, having lost yet another free kick count in the heart-breaking loss to Fremantle at the MCG.

The Tigers lost the free kick count in the game 16-17, the seventh time in eight games where the whistle has gone against them. They clearly have the worst record when it comes to conceding free kicks, with 189 in total. 21 more than any other team.

The big movers on the ladder were the Western Bulldogs who became the first team this year to win a free kick against west Coast at Subiaco. In a low free kick match, the Bulldogs won the whistle 15-12, but lost the game. The Bulldogs were the clear premiership winner in this department last year, winning 16 of 22 free kick counts, before winning all four free kick counts in the finals.

They move on top of the ladder after both Collingwood and Carlton lost their respective counts, to drop to third and fourth respectively, while North Melbourne move to second.
