Guernsey number changes?
« on: September 05, 2022, 06:47:12 AM »
We've now got quite a few lower number guernseys available and possibly have one or two more more after the trade/delist period.

Currently free: 10, 12, 13, 14, 18, 22, 23, 24.


Who do you think will get a lower number guernsey for 2023 and what number do you think they will move to?

Be interesting to see if Dan Rioli changes numbers once he hits 100 in 17.

I recall there being talk of this so MJR may stay the same for another season if that's the case

MRJ will stay in number 49 to honour his Dad

Unless of course number 27 the other number his Dad wore at Richmond becomes available

And based on how the current number 27 has been treated the back half of 2022 that is a distinct possibility

My thoughts on the others

Miller = 18
Sonsie = 12
Gibcus = 23

Taranto will get whatever he wants

Who said anything about him being delisted?

There's this fun and games period coming up called trade.

Don't think he is immune to being available to get any deal done

My guess:

Sonsie 10
Gibcus 12
Taranto 14
Hopper 16 ..... (Aarts delisted)
Miller 18
Cumberland 22

ND53:  36 ..... (Martyn delisted)
RD12:  37

Hopper might go 22 given he was 2 at the giants.

Taranto, Hopper guernsey numbers revealed

By Tony Greenberg
Richmond Media
25 November 2022


Richmondís two prized, mature-age, midfield recruits via last monthís trade period, Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper, will wear guernsey numbers 14 and 22 respectively in their playing careers at Tigerland.

Taranto had the No. 14 during his six-year stint with Greater Western Sydney, while Hopper wore No. 2 at the Giants across seven seasons.

The No. 14 and No. 22 have proven to be highly-successful numbers at Richmond for players recruited from rival AFL clubs.

Bachar Houli, the previous owner of the Tigersí No. 14 guernsey, played a pivotal role in three premierships with the Club as a rebounding defender after crossing over from Essendon.

Josh Caddy, recruited by Richmond from Geelong, was a valuable contributor in two premierships for the Tigers, wearing the No. 22 guernsey.

And, throughout the 1980s, Barry Rowlings starred in the No. 22 with Richmond following his recruitment from Hawthorn. He was a key member of the Tigers team that crushed Collingwood in the 1980 Grand Final.

Thought hopper would go the double 2. Hopefully Taranto plays as well for us in grand finals as the previous #14.

Hugo is moving from 45 to 13 in 2023. Same jumper number trajectory as his dad at St Kilda.
