Two-time Richmond premiership defender Jayden Short took a little swipe at teammate Dustin Martin when asked about who deserving of the Yiooken Medal for best afield.

Essendon's Darcy Parish won the award for his record-breaking 44 disposals, while Martin collected 27 disposals and kicked three goals in the Tigers' 39-point win.

Short was asked about the Yiooken Medal on AFL Nation post-game and was complimentary towards Parish while firing a bazinga to the triple Norm Smith Medalist.

“I think he [Parish] is a well-deserving winner of the award. I suppose Dustin’s probably got enough awards that he can let Darcy have that one,” Short said and reported by SEN's Alex Zaia.

Short himself had an impressive game, collecting 23 disposals and keeping Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuit goalless.

The Tigers now sit seventh on the ladder with a 7-5 record and take on West Coast at Optus Stadium next Sunday.

The game was originally scheduled for Round 14 but has been moved to next Sunday night.
