Richmond Tigers training session


By Jennifer Lumsden, May 17 2018

Watching the Tigers train

It was great to see the Richmond Tigers training recently.

We all caught the train to Richmond Station and walked over to Richmond’s home ground which is on Punt Road Oval.

The Players practiced their ball skills, kicking goals, taking marks and hand balling. While we practiced our cheering.

The players we were keen to see were there, Jack Riewoldt and Dustin Martin.

Some players signed Emily’s jumper and took photos with us. We went and had a look in the Richmond shop before catching the train to Melbourne Central for lunch.

The Players were all lovely and it was exiting to meet them.

You all do a fantastic job with Ben :-) I look forward to seeing him in January and having our time together. Wish I could do more to help.

Thank you Gamze it was good working with you I still do see a lot of the people I was able to place in Coles few of them are now team leaders. I wish you all the best in what ever you plan to do Regards David Jansen
