We continue our special holiday season series at richmondfc.com.au, asking Tiger fans to select the best player to have worn each of the most significant guernsey numbers in the Club’s history.  To assist in your quest, we have profiled those players who have racked up a minimum of 50 games in the number.  The game totals and years listed relate to those played while wearing the specific number, not total Richmond career numbers.  Today, we turn our attention to No. 6.

No. 6

Mark Chaffey – 154 games, 1998-2006

Hard-working small defender, who also carried out some valuable tagging roles for the Tigers later in his league career.  Was strong overhead, courageous, and a reliable performer.

Chris Naish – 143 games, 1990-1997

Speedy, elusive small forward with first-class goalkicking nous.  Didn’t need many opportunities to hurt the opposition on the scoreboard.  Played a key role in Richmond advancing to the preliminary final in 1995.  Kicked 42 goals that season.

Stan Judkins – 133 games, 1928-1936

More than compensated for his small stature and light frame with superb skills and lightning pace. Won the Brownlow Medal in 1930, despite being dropped to Richmond’s reserve-grade side during that season.  Was an important member of the Tigers’ 1932 and 1934 premiership sides. 

Shaun Grigg – 104 games, 2011-2015

Has been a valuable contributor for Richmond in a range of roles, since joining the Club from Carlton, including as a hard-running wingman, a tagger, and a midfielder with the capacity to win contested ball.

David Palm – 104 games, 1983-1988

A tough player who thrived on the physical side of the game and getting under the opposition’s skin.  Effectively used throughout his time with the Tigers in the back pocket, minding the resting rovers, and as a ruck-rover. 

Paul Sproule – 86 games, 1972-1975

One of Richmond’s greatest-ever recruits from a rival league club.  Joined the Tigers after four seasons with Essendon and had a significant, instant impact.  Silky-skilled midfielder with an excellent football brain.  Was a consistently high possession-winner and he used the ball with great precision.  Played a pivotal role in Richmond’s back-to-back premiership teams of 1973-1974.

Jack Scott – 86 games, 1939-1945

Strongly-built, rugged, ruckman/defender, who was especially effective in wet conditions.  Played in the Tigers’ 1943 premiership side and losing 1942 and 1944 Grand Finals.

Reg Hede – 76 games, 1915-1921

Dashing, determined player with abundant courage, who spent his time at Richmond in the back pocket and on a wing.  Was among the best players in the Tigers’ inaugural league premiership in 1920, having been a member of their losing Grand Final line-up the previous year.
