Richmond skipper Trent Cotchin says he and his teammates are refusing to look ahead at a possible finals berth, saying the Tigers cannot afford to look past this weekend.
The Tigers go into Saturday night’s clash with Adelaide on the back of six consecutive wins, having revived its fortunes after a horror 3-10 start to the season.
Richmond currently sit in 12th position and just one game outside the top eight with just three games remaining.
But Cotchin says the club can’t afford to get swept up in fairytales as of yet, and need to focus all thinking on the clash at Adelaide Oval.
“There’s a lot of hype around in the papers and your supporters get excited by it,” he said.
“The reality is we need to perform come Saturday night and if we don’t then that’s not even possible.
“We haven’t really looked further than that.
“Talk about fairytales and so forth. We’re not really interested in that.
“We just want to perform for four quarters against a quality opposition on Saturday night and then who knows where from there.”
