The Richmond 2016 AFL Footy Stamps are sure to delight footy fans and stamp collectors alike. Each pack contains 20 x $1 stamps and tabs, with the tabs featuring 20 players from the current Richmond squad.
Featured on the back of the pack is the full 2016 squad and some of the key milestones beckoning for some of the players.
Under coach Damien Hardwick, Richmond has developed into something of an enigma, frustrating and confounding fans and pundits alike. On the one hand, the Tigers competed in a third successive finals campaign in 2015, a feat not achieved since the halcyon days of the 1970s. On the other hand, they have fallen at the first hurdle in each of those three campaigns. An argument could be mounted that the Tigers have made progress across those three seasons, but 2016 will be the time to demonstrate that the advances made are genuine. Although Hardwick’s position is not under threat, Tiger patience is wearing a little thin and the club will be looking to advance to the second week of this year’s finals as a bare minimum ‘pass mark’.
The Tigers have a hole to fill on the back line after former captain Chris Newman retired after 268 fine games at the end of 2015. A potential replacement is Nathan Broad, a mature-ager from Swan Districts, capable of playing the rebounding half-back role. Also drafted was Daniel Rioli, a highly skilful small forward. Tiger fans will be hoping he has as big an impact at the club as his famous uncle Maurice. Trent Cotchin, Brett Deledio and Dustin Martin are in their prime and will continue to provide quality service to the forwards. With its three-pronged attack featuring Jack Riewoldt, Ty Vickery and Ben Griffiths finally appearing to ‘click’ late last season, Richmond would seem to have the ingredients to take the next step forward.
