This week on the Real Footy podcast, Caroline Wilson, Michael Gleeson and Peter Ryan discuss Richmond’s extraordinary comeback over Hawthorn and Andrew McQualter’s chances of landing the coaching job on a permanent basis.

Richmond will go through a process to select their next permanent senior coach. But with only two losses since he took charge, and the real chance he would leave the club if he doesn’t get the role full time, McQualter’s performance is making it tough for the club to look past him.

The Dreamtime game loss to Essendon may prove very costly to the Tigers’ finals hopes, and we take a look at some of the teams in or close to the bottom of the eight and their chances of featuring in September.

Port Adelaide may have lost to Collingwood on Saturday night, but the Power should take a lot of heart from their performance. With so many talented young players, they look to have a couple of years at the top to enjoy. But will Ken Hinkley be their coach after this season? Given they are set for a top-four finish, it would be hard for the club to get rid of him.

Have the Demons solved their forward line issues? Or do they still have a big weakness inside 50? We discuss the merits of turning Brodie Grundy into a forward or whether Ben Brown is a better option.

Plus, whether the wildcard round idea has merit, a look ahead to the Friday night blockbuster between the Blues and Pies, whether Will Ashcroft can win the Rising Star despite missing the last chunk of the season through injury and who is the most valuable player in the competition at the moment?
