Shane Edwards dreaming of playing in a Richmond Tigers grand final

  Shane Edwards dreaming of playing in a Richmond Tigers grand final Richmond star Shane Edwards has admitted it has been hard not to think about playing in a grand final this year and that he has frequently dreamed about the possibility. The Tigers are just one win away from their first grand final in 35 years. In order to get there, they must overcome Greater Western Sydney in the second preliminary final at the MCG on Saturday.But Edwards has already visualised what it might feel like running out on the MCG on that last Saturday in September."It's pretty hard, you can't really control what you dream about," Edwards said at Punt Road Oval on Thursday.

When Jack Riewoldt, the spearhead, booted the first goal of the last quarter, that's when they knew. The tears began to stream down faces lined with years of heartache.

By the time Dusty kicked the final goal - it had to be Dusty - the dam wall was gone. Not just broken, absolutely blown to pieces.They were in raptures in the back of the Punt Road end, a place where the yellow-and-black faith runs stronger than anywhere.

It's tough as teak in the standing room area, 'Tiger tuff' as the banner goes. People who are not prone to weeping unless absolutely necessary.

It is here, under the brutalist concrete of the Great Southern Stand, where they have gathered every second week for the past 37 long years. That's how long it's been since the last one, back in a time when Richmond fans could almost count the number of recent premierships on two hands.

The roar of a capacity crowd© Justin McManus The roar of a capacity crowd It can't have been as sweet as this. That's what a drought does, makes you think the rain will never come. Then when it does, at the time you least expect it, you stare up at the sky in wonder.

The rainmaker was the man in number four. The one with the tattoos. "Strong and bold" is their catchcry and he is the strongest and boldest of them all.

Unstoppable again, he claimed the footy trifecta: a Brownlow, a Norm Smith, and a premiership medal in the one year.

There won't be enough beer in Richmond, a place not short on pubs, to toast him.

Victoria's top cop was said to be rethinking his decision to leave open Melbourne's most important thoroughfare, Punt Road. He may not have any choice now.

They crossed Punt Road, so named as it used to be where boats would ferry people across the Yarra. After the game, they carried their dreams, now realised, back to the oval that adjoins that motorway for a party that will stretch on for days.

When the siren finally came, the roar bounced around the stands until it built into a crescendo of thunder.

As it sank in at the back of the Southern Stand, long suffering fans hugged each other and called fellow travellers who had the misfortune not to be there.

Richmond snaps 37-year premiership drought by defeating Adelaide in AFL Grand Final . Live Updates. Tears flowed freely — both in the stands and on the field — as the Tiger Army roared “Yellow and Black” on repeat.

By Daniel Jeffrey, 30 Sep 2017 Daniel Jeffrey is a Roar Editor. The Richmond Tigers have won their first premiership since 1980 after a dominant performance against the Adelaide Crows saw them cruise home in the AFL grand final and claim a 108-60 victory .

The reactions told the tale. They grabbed each other and embraced like long-lost friends. They threw their arms in the air to relish in the glory. They held their faces in their hands, laughing like only premiership winners laugh.

One or two just walked away, shaking their heads with a little smile on their face like they couldn't quite believe it. But yes, it had happened.

Then came the club song, a tune so catchy even their worst enemies hum it under the breath. It boomed out from the PA but you could barely hear it among the faithful. They had been belting it out long before the verdict was official, full-throated and proud until they could sing no more.

Finally, it was Tiger time.
