Richmond AFLW coach Ryan Ferguson was pleased with his side's ability to finish off the season on a high note.

After a disappointing Round 9 display against Geelong, the Tigers well and truly responded against Collingwood on Sunday with a seven-goal final term, kicking away to their biggest-ever win.

"We weren't happy with how things unfolded last week," Ferguson said after the 52-point victory at Victoria Park.

"This was about us... playing the brand of footy that we know we can.

"We were challenged in lots of ways throughout the season, and (today) showed a lot of character and growth in our game that will catapult us forward."


The Tigers were inaccurate early but remained composed.

"That's part of the game, holding your nerve," Ferguson said.

"We were behind at half-time but we were in control of the game.

"(If you)y play your way and make some little adjustments but you continue to hunt the footy and set up really strong behind the ball... eventually you're going to turn it your way."


Hard-running Tiger Eilish Sheerin joined the Tigers' midfield brigade on Sunday and the move paid off.

"We wanted to see a different mix in there for us in the future. We've always wanted to do it and this was the day to really test it out," Ferguson said.

"She's so explosive and as the game goes on she only gets more traction... the game slows down but she doesn't."

"Grace (Egan) was huge today and Mon (Conti) bursting out of the middle in the last quarter, it was pretty cool to watch."


Ferguson said the season had shown lots to "build on and work on".

"We've got to get better," he said.

"We want to compete with the top four, we don't want to be around the mark.

"We've got to find out how we can improve our list and continue grow, which was saw some of today and we've seen throughout the season in patches."
