Leppa’s Tiger flag delight

Justin Leppitsch celebrates with Alex Rance after winning the 2017 AFL Grand Final.

Richmond assistant coach Justin Leppitsch has revealed how much the Club’s 2017 premiership meant to him.

Although Leppitsch in his illustrious playing career was a key member of Brisbane’s three consecutive premiership sides during the early 2000s, he took more pleasure out of the Tigers’ triumph this year.

“It’s definitely the most enjoyable year I’ve had as a player or coach . . . I mean, I never watched any of the Grand Finals I played in, but I ended up watching this one about four or five times,” Leppitsch said on ‘SEN’. 

“I think you have a bit more pride.  It’s probably more like watching your kids play in a grand final . . .  

“You just have much more pride when you’ve been able to bring a group together and help them succeed . . .

“I think winning also makes happiness and the rooms a bit...

Richmond donates $166K to the Alannah & Madeline Foundation This year Richmond has raised $166K for its preferred charity partner. At the 2018 Starry Starry Night, Alannah & Madeline CEO Lesley Podesta explained why the support Richmond provides is so important.

The Richmond Football Club’s commitment to the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has reached new heights, with the Club raising more than $166,000 in 2017. 

This takes the Club’s total support for its charity partner over the past seven years to almost $500,000.

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is a national charity with the vision that all children have the right to a safe and happy childhood free from violence.

Gale looking forward

Gale on SEN Brendon Gale speaks to SEN Breakfast about Richmond's Premiership year and looking ahead to the 2018 season.

Richmond CEO Brendon Gale has revealed just how small the window of celebrations was for him following the Club’s 2017 premiership.

Gale told ‘SEN’ that as proud as he is with what the Tigers achieved this year, the nature of the AFL industry meant it was imperative to get back to business relatively soon after the tremendous triumph.

“The cycles of footy, particularly post-season, move on pretty quickly,” Gale said.

“There’s a range of different set pieces that almost serve as lines in the sand. So there’s been a few of those.

“Clearly we had a week or two, where we could just reflect on the magnitude of what had been achieved by everyone.

“It was fantastic and there was so much good will. You can’t avoid getting caught up with it.

“But there’s the whole...

Tigers primed for big pre-season

Pre-season injury update Physical Performance Manager, Peter Burge describes the health of the Tigers' list and outlines the structure of this pre-season.

Richmond’s Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge doesn’t subscribe one iota to the theory that the Tigers are disadvantaged in their preparations for season 2018 because of this year’s premiership triumph.

The Grand Final victory over Adelaide on September 30 meant it’s taken until this week for the entire Richmond playing group to return to pre-season training.

Burge, however, is convinced the Tigers’ late finish to season 2017 has them in good shape to tackle this pre-season.

“People may perceive it (the pre-season period) as delayed . . . we don’t view it that way,” Burge told ‘Roar Vision’.

“We played three high-intensity finals football games and our VFL team played in four. So we’re actually looking at it that we’ve got...

Good signs on Tiger injury front

Pre-season injury update Physical Performance Manager, Peter Burge describes the health of the Tigers' list and outlines the structure of this pre-season.

With Richmond’s full playing group now back at pre-season training, the Tigers’ Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge provided ‘Roar Vision’ with an update on those players who underwent surgery following the 2017 season . . .

Daniel Rioli, with his (broken) foot, he’s out of the (moon) boot now and walking around in his runners, which is a great sign. He’s doing a rehab program at the moment with some cross-training, weights all that type of stuff.

Kane Lambert had very minor knee surgery and resumed running about four weeks ago. So he’s going great at the moment and will resume training this week, once he’s back from Tasmania with the young guys.

Dion Prestia had very minor ankle surgery post-season and has resumed...

Leppitsch on Rance

AFL 2017 Training - Richmond 041217

Alex Rance at pre-season training.

Richmond premiership hero Alex Rance is "in the conversation" for the best full-back of all time and still has three or four years left to further enhance his status, Tigers assistant coach Justin Leppitsch says.

Rance's back-half dominance has resulted in four successive All Australian selections, including the captaincy honour this year.

The 28-year-old has finished in the top two in Richmond's best and fairest in each of the past three seasons, winning the award in 2015.

The supremely athletic 175-gamer was one of the best players afield in the Tigers' drought-breaking Grand Final win over Adelaide this year.

Leppitsch's opinion of Rance carries significant weight given he was a star key defender himself, playing a key role in the Brisbane Lions' 2001-03 premierships.

His admiration for Rance is shared by Carlton legend Stephen Silvagni, who was...

Tigers set sights securely on 2018

Cotchin's excited to be back Skipper, Trent Cotchin speaks to the media as he returns for his first day of pre-season training.

Richmond captain Trent Cotchin is confident the Tigers’ 2017 premiership players will quickly click into pre-season training mode following their off-season celebrations and focus on the challenges ahead in 2018.

“I think we’ve got a good balance of guys that understand you need to let your hair down a little bit,” Cotchin said.

“It’s a pretty serious environment, AFL, and everyone’s always watching you, so guys need to take that opportunity to relax and blow of a little steam.

“But I think we are mature enough to know there comes a time to switch back on and start to strive towards the goal that you’re setting for 2018.”

Cotchin's message to avoid premiership hangover

Cotchin's excited to be back Skipper, Trent Cotchin speaks to the media as he returns for his first day of pre-season training.

RICHMOND will be "going out there to hunt" in 2018 in an effort to defend its flag and stave off any chance of a premiership hangover, captain Trent Cotchin says.

The Tigers' full list returned to pre-season training on Monday and took a moment to acknowledge their drought-breaking premiership before hitting the track in the rain at Punt Road Oval.

Cotchin said the Tigers had a unique group with improvement in it, and he knew the players would do the hard work required to avoid a slide in 2018.

Baker in the mix

2017 Rookie Draft: Pick 18, Liam Baker Highlights of Richmond's pick 18 in the 2017 Rookie Draft, Liam Baker.

Dual premiership coach of WAFL club Subiaco Jarrad Schofield is convinced Richmond rookie draft selection Liam Baker possesses the required attributes to play AFL football.

Baker, 19, played 13 games, kicked 19 goals for Subiaco, and averaged 16 disposals per match in his first season at the club this year after transferring from West Perth, when he missed out on being drafted to the AFL at the end of 2016.

The tenacious, skilful small forward was the WA Lions’ best player in their preliminary final victory over South Fremantle, picking up 17 disposals, kicking three goals, and earning high praise for the crucial strong defensive pressure he applied throughout the match.

He subsequently was one of Subiaco’s best players in the grand final loss to Peel Thunder, finishing...
