Cotchin has ‘Captain Blood’ in his sights

JLT2: Cotchin sparks pair of goals Some electric clearance work from Trent Cotchin results in two important goals.

Trent Cotchin is on track to become the second longest-serving captain in Richmond’s history during the 2019 season.

Cotchin, who has captained the Tigers in 140 games all-up, is 20 games behind Club ‘Immortal’ Jack Dyer (160 games from 1940-49).

Dual Richmond premiership captain Percy Bentley holds the record at Tigerland for most games as skipper with 168 from 1932-40.

Cotchin filled in as the Tigers’ captain for the first time in the 2010 season.

He was officially given the Richmond captaincy at the end of 2012 and in 2017 he led the Tigers to their glorious, drought-breaking premiership.
