Triple M’s Paul Roos believes Richmond’s win over St Kilda has elevated them into the premiership picture.

Richmond needed a win over St Kilda to seal up a top four spot and a massive qualifying final bout with Geelong.

They did it with convinction, defeating the Saints by 41 points.

It’s also elevated their standing in Roos’ eyes.

"It fairly and squarely puts the Tigers in, dare I say it, the premiership picture," he said late in the fourth quarter of Triple M's call.

He believes it has put them properly in the bracket of premiership contention, amongst the likes of Adelaide, Sydney, Geelong and GWS.

"Fairly and squarely, finishing third, they’re playing some fantastic football, their game style stacks up," he said.

"They have to now be in the conversation, don’t they?"
