Tiger player number changes

Nick Vlastuin will wear the number 1 guernsey vacated by the retired Chris Newman

Richmond’s talented trade pick-up Chris Yarran will wear a familiar jumper number in his 2016 debut season with the Tigers.

Yarran has opted for the No. 13 that he wore throughout his 119-game league career at Carlton from 2009-15.

Meanwhile, the Tigers’ No. 1 guernsey, vacated by Chris Newman, has been handed to emerging star Nick Vlastuin, who wore the No. 31 during his first three years at the Club.

Another promising Tiger youngster, Ben Lennon, moves from No. 35 to No. 7, while mature-age recruit Kane Lambert has made the switch from No. 48 to the No. 23 worn with such distinction by Jack Dyer Medallist Daniel Jackson until his retirement at the end of the 2014 season.

The No. 21 that tough, inside midfielder Shane Tuck proudly, and successfully wore throughout 173 games with Richmond from 2004-13, has gone to a similar style of player in GWS recruit Jacob Townsend.

And, Port Adelaide recruit Andrew Moore will wear the No. 15 jumper in his first season at Tigerland.
