Richmond Tigers

Richmond TigersThe Richmond Tigers of the AFL were established in 1885 and joined the then-VFL in 1908. After a very strong run of sucess that saw them collect ten premierships by 1980, the Tigers went through a lean period of just six finals appearances in 36 seasons before breaking through with premiership success in 2017.

Richmond put together a stunning turnaround in 2017, rebounding from 13th on the ladder to finish 3rd. The Tigers put on a September clinic too, dismantling Geelong, Greater Western Sydney and Adelaide to claim their 11th premiership and first since 1980.

The Tigers played it safe at the trade table and draft after their premiership victory and, while they’re expected to feature in the top four again, have not been an overwhelming favourite to go back-to-back.
