Star Richmond forward Jack Riewoldt has revealed his top 10 Tigers players since 1987.
Speaking on Fox Footy Live, Riewoldt put Dustin Martin at the top of his list, but perhaps the biggest surprise was Shane Edwards coming in fifth, who received the most praise from the two-time premiership player.
“(Edwards is) arguably the best indigenous player to ever play for Richmond,” the three-time Coleman Medalist said.
“I think he’s one of the most, if not the most underrated player I’ve ever played with. You’ve just got to watch the big games that we played in, both the Grand Finals he arguably could’ve won the Norm Smith.
“He’s a bit similar to Shaun Burgoyne the fact that when we had a lot of injuries at the start of last year down back we had the ability to push him down back we sort of lost a bit of leadership with ‘Rancey’ (Alex Rance) going so we shifted Shane down there, but if we need something in the middle we’ll always throw to him if we need him up forward we’ll put him there as well and he can play anywhere.
“He’s as good a handball as I’ve ever seen too, he’s an unbelievable handball.”
Shane Edwards has played 256 games for Richmond, winning two premierships and one All-Australian selection in 2018.
