Tuesday was particularly special for Mr. Hardy who turned 100 on the day.

To celebrate, the trio enjoyed a birthday party morning tea at Punt Road, where they met all of the current Richmond players, had a photo with the team during training, enjoyed cake and their family and friends singing them ‘happy birthday’ for the 100th time in their lives.

Although witnessing many great Richmond players and moments in his life, Mr. Hardy couldn’t go past the Tigers of today and described star midfielder, Dustin Martin as “the best centreman I have seen.”
