Richmond players and coaches, past and present, have paid tribute to retiring Tigers David Astbury and Bachar Houli. 

Speaking to the media on Thursday morning, senior coach Damien Hardwick hailed the triple premiership-winning pair for their significant impact on Tigerland.

"Both retire three-time premiership players, but that's only really scratching the surface of what both those boys have brought to our club," Hardwick said. 

"The legacy that they will leave and have built can't be measured and, to be honest, they can't be replaced.

"What those players have brought to our club has simply been incredible. They'll be missed no doubt, but will always be Richmond men and will always be welcome through our doors."

Hardwick's sentiment was shared by many, who took to social media to thank the much-loved duo for their contribution to the game.
