Hello everyone, From blonde tips and skinny arms to twelve years later and a fresh start. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the RFC for all that they have done for me since I arrived in 2004. I am incredibly grateful for the support, faith and guidance the club has shown in me. Not only developing me into an AFL footballer, but also helping me turn into the person I have become. I’ve met so many wonderful people at Tigerland over the years, many of which I am proud to call my close friends. To the Tiger faithful, thank you for sticking with me and the club through thick and thin in the time I have been at the club. We have had some ups and downs but there you were, every weekend, cheering on the boys with that famous Tiger roar that always sent chills down my spine whenever we were making a charge at the MCG. While I have decided to have a fresh start, Richmond will always hold a special place in my heart and I will always be forever grateful of the influence the club has had on me. I have always relished a challenge and I can’t wait to embark on a new journey with the Giants. I hope the experience will be a successful one, but most importantly, it’s a chance for me to learn some new things about our great game from a different perspective. Thanks again, Lids
