As thegame wore on it became evident that whoever could overcome the conditions would take away the victory.

A combination of injuries and handling errors hindered the Waratahs.The Roosterswere a lot safer withball in hand and ran away to earn the win andJack Carroll Cup.

McGoldrick said the tension in the match stemmed from the amount of errors and penalties in the contest.

“It was the first game of the year and that stuff tends to happen a bit,” hesaid.

“Hopefully they got it out of their system.

“In the second half there wasn’t as much niggle and everyone settled down and played footy.That’s what should happen and Ithought the second half was a lot better game of footy.”

McGoldrick said ball control was key on the day and that the scoreline didn’t reflect the type of match that was played.

“Especially in these conditions, it’s about completions and holding the ball.At the start of the game they had a lot more ball than us, but that turned around,” he said.

“The score flattered us a bit.There probably wasn’t that many points between both of us.”

TweetFacebookBRISBANE LIONS 3.1 4.5 6.7 8.10 (58) vRICHMOND 4.4 8.5 13.7 21.11 (137)

Richmond’s recent dominance over the Brisbane Lions has continued with the Tigers scoring a comfortable 79-point win in a scrappy affair at the Gabba on Saturday night.

In the battle of the big cats, the Tigers won 21.11 (137) to 8.10 (58) for their eighth-straight victory over the Lions, a record stretching back to round seven, 2009.

Looking to atone for their 82-point loss to North Melbourne last weekend, the Lions never looked in the contest and despite both sides having similar numbers in contested possessions, inside 50s, handballs and clearances, a lack of disposal efficiency and marks inside 50 cost the Lions dearly.

Trent Cotchin (37 disposals) and Bachar Houli (32 disposals) led the way for the Tigers, with the Lions assisted by the two Daynes – with Beams and Zorko earning 35 and 27 disposals respectively.

There were seven multiple goal-scorers for the Tigers – with Jack Riewoldt booting four majors – while Zorko booted two goals for the Lions.

Leading by 24 points at halftime, two goals to Riewoldt and one to Nathan Gordon stretched Richmond’s advantage to 41 points midway through the third term – the visitors kicking six unanswered goals since Michael Paparone’s major inside the opening minute of the second term.

Goals to Zorko and debutant Harris Andrews briefly stopped the rot, until two goals inside five minutes to Shaun Grigg extended the Tigers’ lead to 42 points at three-quarter time.

Dustin Martin opened Richmond’s account in the final term before goals to Lions James Aish and Josh Green were cancelled out by Gordon and Kamdyn McIntosh’s second goals.

The Tigers eventually kicked away with further goals to Riewoldt, Ben Griffiths, Shane Edwards and substitute Sam Lloyd, to see the visitors roar back into the top-eight in front of a crowd of 22,441.

The only sour note for the Tigers was a hamstringinjury to Chris Knights midway through the second quarter.

The Tigers can now look ahead to next Friday’s match against the Demons while the Lions will host the Eagles.

Tigerscoach Damien Hardwick paid tribute to Cotchinwho finished the game with 23 kicks, 14 handballs and one goal to compliment his disposal tally.

“Trent was terrific. He had a reasonable game last week but for him to come out the way he did and respond and lift his side over the line was really impressive,” Hardwick said.

“We took a bit of time to get going. Brisbane were always going to come out breathing fire after the bake they copped during the week. It’s probably fair to say our boys copped a fair baking too so it was going to be a pretty tough affair early on.”

Meanwhile Lions bossJustin Leppitsch said his young side faded badly during the second halfas the Tigers kicked eight goals to two in the final term.

“The last quarter was probably the most disappointing where our players lost hope. You could sense [that] a little bit in the third [quarter], so that was probably the most non-competitive component of the game that last quarter,” he said.

OAKLAND: Steph Curry scored 34 points with an MVP-worthy performance, and the Golden State Warriors went up big before holding off the New Orleans Pelicans 106-99 in their playoff opener.

Klay Thompson added 21 points, and Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut dominated down low as the Warriors looked every bit like the NBA’s top seed – at least for three quarters. They smothered Anthony Davis and the Pelicans with the league’s best defense, thrilling a gold shirt-wearing sellout crowd of 19,596 that rocked and roared all afternoon.

The Warriors led by 15 after the first quarter, 18 at the half and 25 late in the third. The Pelicans pulled within four in the final minute behind Davis, who scored 20 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, to make the contest seem closer than it really was.

Game 2 of the series is Monday night in Oakland, where the Warriors have won 19 straight.

Davis shot 13 of 23 from the floor and grabbed seven rebounds in his playoff debut. Quincy Pondexter scored 20 points and Eric Gordon added 16 for the Pelicans, who shot 42.2 percent.

That was due in large part to Golden State’s defensive stoppers, Green and Bogut, who came up big on both ends. Pelicans point guard Tyreke Evans also left in the first half with a bruised left knee and did not return.

Green finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Bogut had 12 points, 14 rebounds and five assists.

The Warriors won a franchise-record 67 games, going a league-best 39-2 at home. And just like their regular-season resume predicted, they worked over the Pelicans with all the pomp and potency of a playoff powerhouse.

Fans chanted “War-ri-ors!” during warmups, an alley-oop from Thompson to Bogut got them roaring more and then came Curry crashing through the lane for layups, sending them into a chorus of “M-V-P!” for the man many believe will take home the league’s most coveted individual award.

All of it started from a swarming defensive effort that kept Davis from doing much until the final quarter and, in turn, negated everything New Orleans wanted to do.

Golden State led 28-13 after the first quarter. In the final seconds of the second quarter, Curry raced up court and converted a left-handed reverse layup off the top of the glass, drawing a foul on Davis to start a three-point play and flexing his arms to the crowd.

The basket put the Warriors up 59-41 at the half, and they led 82-57 late in the third quarter. Despite Davis’ late push, it was too much for New Orleans to overcome.

Curry finished 13 of 25 shooting but just 4 of 13 from 3-point range. He also had five assists and four rebounds.
