2013 'Yabby' Jeans Jug

2013 marked the tenth anniversary of the running of the Jeans Jug.  This is a Golfing event held each year at Phillip Island Golf Club to recognise the influence “Yabby” Jeans had on the three clubs he coached – St Kilda, Hawthorn and Richmond.

On Friday 11th October we journeyed down by coach to Phillip Island to compete against the other 2 teams, together with eight bowlers. A bowls event was incorporated 12 months after golf started.

Our golf team comprised of: Leon Daphne, Don Davenport, Bruce Tempany, Frank Loughran, Bob Naismith, Stan Roberts, Barry Cameron, Daryl Vernon, Peter Williams and John Ronaldson.

We arrived at Phillip Island at 11am and sat down to an early lunch put on by the Phillip Island RSL (who now own the golf club).  It was great to once again do battle with old adversaries such as Simon Meehan, Ken Beck, Greg Dean, Kevin Roberts, Jim O’Dea etc. It was a stableford event with the 6 best scores from each club being added together.

Considering all the rain Phillip Island has had during the past fortnight the course was in good condition.

Thanks to consistent golf from Bruce Tempany, Don Davenport, Stan Roberts, Bob Naismith, Frank Loughran and John Ronaldson we are pleased to report that The Mighty Tigers won the Jug for the 5th time in 10 years the event has been held.

It was a great team effort.  On the trip back to Melbourne every person got their own parcel of fish and chips courtesy of Bill Meaklim, plus liquid refreshments which made for a funny and lively trip home.

This is a most enjoyable day and anyone interested in coming next year please advise Barry Cameron.

Back To The 90's (Legends Game)

 2017 legends game 640


To all those who represented the Tigers on and off the field in the 90’s, if it wasn’t for your involvement and sacrifice during this decade the Tigers would not exist, let alone survive to be the Club we are today! People rattled money tins along Punt Road, took pay cuts and played for the love of the jumper and teammates.

The Richmond Former Players & Officials are asking you for one more effort. Come and celebrate with us at the Legend’s Cup match day function!

Last year the boys from the 80’s had a great day and now it’s “Back to the ‘90’s”! You won’t regret it! All 1990's U19’s, Reserves, Seniors & Officials and partners are welcome. ALL RFP&OA members are welcome to attend.

It is a free day including entry and seating. There is only one requirement… you must be a financial member of the Richmond Former Players & Officials Assoc.

The day begins at 11.00am at the “G” on Saturday 8th April, which is Round 3 vs West Coast, with a “Legends” game featuring former players and Corporates. If you wish to participate you can download the entry form here... http://www.formertigers.com.au/images/downloads/2017-legends-game.pdf

Following the Legends game there will be a social gathering throughout the afternoon in the Harrison Room at the G with drinks at bar prices.

After the AFL match everyone is invited back to Punt Road for drinks and finger food with the compliments of RFP&OA and RFC.

So, if you haven’t become a member of the Richmond Former Players and Officials Association yet, download the membership form http://www.formertigers.com.au/images/downloads/2017-membership.pdf and return it before 26th March 2017.

Having done that, and you would like to attend the 1990’s Reunion, please advise Leonie Bawden at formerplayers@richmondfc.com.au or 0438 300 001 by close of business 27th March 2017.
