1. Nick Vlastuin

Excellent defense. The match was early on by Eric Hipwood, but with a few Tigers forwards, he was as free as possible. He was the No. 1 interception player on the floor. He unleashed his ferocious booty in the third period which led to the Richmond forward line and Tom Lynch’s goal. He marked the ball strongly and was effective with his feet. 8

3. Dion Prestia

It was close to half time due to the injury. Devon Robertson had the most stops for company. He had three tackles in his first season but generally held up well for most of the first half. But as soon as the Lions got a run in, Prestia came alive to rouse the Tigers, winning several clearances and setting the side’s tone through the middle. Then came Hammy’s blow – a big blow at that. 5

4. Dustin Martin

A solid game without being too good. Darcy Gardiner’s shot went straight up the middle for the sleepers. It came late in the Tigers’ first game of the season for the opening goal. 6

5. Jack Ross

What time to play the game of your life. He started on the wing next to Mitch Robinson but was pushed to center, especially after Dion Precia was sidelined. Scored a huge team-lifting goal during Richmond’s impressive run. He won a lot of hard football, but was clean on foot, finishing with 23 tackles, nine contested possessions, eight marks and eight tackles. 8

6. Robbie Tarrant.

8. Jack Riewoldt

Clutch! He had Jack Payne for company earlier. Despite a quiet start to the game, he kicked the required goal late in the second round to give the side a lift. Then he stepped up when it mattered most in the fourth period, scoring a miraculous shot and adding another. It also created a lot of defensive pressure. Maybe he’ll sign a new one-year contract with that performance. 6

9. Trent Cochin

The veteran had some big moments. He was on the first throw to center, but set the tone with his good work rate to center. In the first quarter, Tom Lynch scored on a spectacular field goal that set up a big team inside the 50. 6
