AFL 2016 Rd 05 - Melbourne v Richmond

Richmond and Melbourne will play on a Tuesday night in the annual Anzac Day eve clash in 2018

Richmond’s Tuesday night Anzac Eve clash with Melbourne early in season 2018 is unusual scheduling, but it’s not the first time the Tigers have played on that day throughout their history.

They have featured in four Tuesday games previously, with two of them against the Demons.

All those four matches – in 1961, 1972, 1978 and 1989 – were played on Anzac Day (April 25), long before Collingwood and Essendon took ownership of the special occasion.

In 1961, 1972 and 1978, the Anzac Day fixture was the Tigers’ third game in 11 days (April 15, 22 and 25), and their next match during each of those years was on May 6.

Here’s how Richmond fared in its four previous Tuesday games . . .

  • 1961, Round 3 v South Melbourne, Punt Road – lost by 44 points.
  • 1972, Round 5 v Melbourne, MCG – won by five...

Pagan baffled by Tiger's long wait to get drafted

Grand recollections: Lambert Kane Lambert reflects on the 2017 Premiership.

DUAL North Melbourne premiership coach Denis Pagan has spoken of his exasperation at watching Richmond premiership midfielder Kane Lambert repeatedly ignored by AFL clubs.

Pagan, who also coached Carlton, elected to end his 25-year coaching career in 2009 with a year at the helm of TAC Cup side Northern Knights, where he met then-17-year-old Lambert.

Sam Grimley and Dylan Grimes – a Tiger teammate of Lambert's – went on to be drafted at the end of that season, while another Richmond star, Josh Caddy, joined the big league a year later.

But Lambert, 25, had to wait until the 46th pick in the 2014 rookie draft, after winning the Fothergill-Round Medal a season earlier as the VFL's most promising young player.

The former Northern Blues and Williamstown onballer's first two years at AFL level were solid rather...

2017 marks of the year: No. 3

2017 MOTY: 3 Jack Riewoldt's mark in the third quarter of the Grand Final is number 3 in Richmond's 2017 mark of the year.

Star Richmond key forward Jack Riewoldt has featured prominently for the second time in the Tigers’ top 10 marks of 2017.

Riewoldt’s mark early in the third quarter of the Grand Final clash with Adelaide has been voted Richmond’s third best of the year by Tiger fans.

The Tigers, leading by nine points and with all the momentum in the contest, propelled the ball to the half-forward flank on the outer side of the Punt Road end of the MCG.

Riewoldt launched himself in familiar fashion at the ball, rising high above Crow defender Kyle Hartigan and Jake Level to take an inspirational mark on his chest.

We will reveal the second best and No. 1 mark of the year, as voted by Yellow and Black barrackers, tomorrow, Friday, November 3.

Ben Griffiths’ big mark against Collingwood in Round 2

Ben Griffiths’ big mark just before half-time in Richmond’s Round 2 clash with Collingwood at the MCG has been voted the Tigers’ second best of 2017 by Yellow and Black barrackers.

With about a minute to go in the opening half of the match, and Richmond trailing by five points, the talented Tiger ‘tall’ watched as teammate Nick Vlastuin pumped the ball deep into the team’s forward line at the city end of the ground.

Griffiths then proceeded to propel himself skywards, above a large pack, to take a towering mark that underlined the all-round football ability he possesses.

The best Richmond mark of the year, as voted by Tiger fans, will be revealed later today.

2017 MOTY: 1 Jack Riewoldt's mark in the first quarter of the Grand Final is Richmond's 2017 mark of the year.

Star key forward Jack Riewoldt took the best mark by a Richmond player in the Club’s glorious premiership year, according to Tiger fans.

They voted Riewoldt’s mark during the early stages of the Grand Final against Adelaide as the Tigers’ best of 2017.

Riewoldt set the tone for Richmond in the premiership-decider with his A-grade aerial attack at the football just a few minutes into the big match.

Richmond captain Trent Cotchin drove the ball long into the team’s forward line, and ‘Jumping Jack’ subsequently did what he does so well.

He launched himself at the incoming ball, climbing over teammate Jacob Townsend and Crow opponent Jake Lever, to haul in a magnificent mark befitting of the occasion.

Rare insight into Richmond’s rare premiership

No matter how well-equipped and well-prepared an AFL football team is, there’s still a certain amount of fortune required to achieve the ultimate. You could say the same about football literature.

When Fairfax journalist Konrad Marshall embedded himself within the Richmond Football Club to write an inside account of the Tigers’ 2017 season, literally no-one could have dreamed he’d end up writing the story of one of the most remarkable premierships the game had seen.

The result is arguably the most compelling book about the inner workings of an AFL club yet produced, certainly since what remains the standard for footy books, John Powers’ famous account of the 1977 season with Ron Barassi’s North Melbourne, “The Coach”.

Powers, too, got lucky, with North winning a famous premiership over Collingwood after a drawn and replayed grand final. But like “The Coach”, Marshall’s “Yellow &...

Can Dusty Boys win quaddie on another Main Stage?

AFL 2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final - Adelaide v Richmond

Will Josh Caddy and Dustin Martin have more to celebrate on Saturday?

THE DUSTY Boys group of Richmond midfielders thought buying a stake in a racehorse for fun would lead to a day out at a country race meeting.

Instead, their team-bonding exercise called Main Stage has a chance at winning his own Grand Final in Saturday's $1.5 million Victoria Derby.

Main Stage has become known as Brownlow and Norm Smith medallist Dustin Martin's horse, even though the Dusty Boys together only own a five per cent share.

The syndicate's name started off as a bit of a joke, at Martin's expense.

"(Assistant coach) Andrew McQualter just did that more so because it would annoy Dusty," premiership player Josh Caddy said.

"As you know he doesn't really like much attention being on him. He likes to keep a low profile, just play footy and that's about it.

"We sort of did it as a joke at the start and it's...
