Cotchin captaincy century

Trent Cotchin will lead Richmond out for the 100th time on Saturday night

Trent Cotchin will chalk up his 100th game as Richmond’s captain in Saturday night’s Round 7 match against Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.

The star midfielder and 2012 Brownlow Medallist becomes only the fifth player in Tigerland’s history to reach the 100-game milestone as skipper.

Star ruckman Percy Bentley holds the record for the most games as Richmond captain – 168 from 1932-40 – including the Club’s premierships in 1932 and 1934.

Tiger ‘Immortal’, the great Jack Dyer, is second on the Club’s captaincy longevity list, with 160 games from 1940-49, followed by Des Rowe on 104 games, and then Matthew Knights, 102 games.
