Richmond defender Jayden Short enjoyed the game of his life on Saturday in Richmond’s Grand Final victory over Geelong, collecting 25 disposals and 771 metres gained.

The celebrations were shared the second the siren sounded, with COVID-19 restrictions lifted at the conclusion of the season, with players able to interact with fans post match.

Footage saw Short receive a gift from a Richmond fan following the win, with many footy fans wondering what was handed over.

The Herald Sun has revealed businessman and Tigers fan Daniel Haas handed Short a watch to congratulate the 24-year-old.

“It was just a gesture and I am so humbled that he accepted the watch to begin with,” he said.

“It’s a gold and black watch, my favourite of the watches I sell. He came over and I thought he was nearly going to get the Norm Smith and I said to him, this is from my collection and my son wants to give it to you.

“I have been a Tiger fan all my life, I am very lucky we moved to Queensland and our cases are down compared to Victoria but I managed to get Grand Final tickets and it was an unreal experience.

“To take my son and best mate to the game was so good, especially over the team where I grew up in Geelong.

“I was always copping flak from Geelong supporters. For him to come back and give me a big handshake was so good.”

Haas started an online business last year and was ecstatic to be able to hand over some if his own work to a premiership star.

To be wearing one after the game and be able to pass it on to Jayden, I was lost for words”

Short ended the night second on the Norm Smith Medal voting behind star midfielder Dustin Martin.
