WATCH: Dusty plays 'wherever the hell he wants' - Hardwick

  WATCH: Dusty plays 'wherever the hell he wants' - Hardwick He has driven opposition coaches mad all season but even Richmond boss Damien Hardwick admits he has little control over Tigers superstar Dustin Martin. The Brownlow Medal winner has been an unstoppable force for the Tigers all season and will have a big say in the final outcome of Saturday’s AFL grand final against Adelaide at the MCG.Asked how he intends to use his most dangerous player in the club’s first decider in 35 years, Hardwick conceded Martin himself will largely decide where and when he uses his genius in front of an estimated 100,000 fans.

She ' s a little nervous about getting her first tattoo but Dusty Martin ' s grandma is going to grit her teeth and get the job done. Four years ago Mrs Knight promised her famous grandson that she 'd get a tattoo if the Tigers won the flag. At the time it seemed like a throwaway line.

"I'm very nervous" Lois Knight said on Wednesday. "I heard that they hurt".

Four years ago Mrs Knight promised her famous grandson that she'd get a tattoo if the Tigers won the flag. At the time it seemed like a throwaway line.

But when her grandson and his teammates took out premiership cup on Saturday, amid the jubilation was the realisation that she would have to go under the gun.

"I will follow through," Mrs Knight, 70, said.

The custom tattoo is now "in the works" with the help of a family friend and it's bound to be a little bit Dusty.

Courtney Cross, who went to school with Martin at Castlemaine Secondary College, will be drawing up the design.

AFL grand final 2017: The moments that mattered in Richmond win over Adelaide

  AFL grand final 2017: The moments that mattered in Richmond win over Adelaide These were the key moments in Richmond's drought-breaking premiership win. FIRST QUARTER, 16 min: Richmond break throughRichmond kicked their first through Josh Caddy. It was much needed and a little fortuitous after Adelaide choose to take the advantage on the wing. The umpire arguably shouldn't have paid it and brought the free kick back to Taylor Walker instead. Had Tex got the ball, Adelaide looked on for a goal and the score would have been 19-3. Instead, the ball went Richmond's way and Caddy scored to make it 13-9.

"Last night she had the number four in her mind so that might end up in it somewhere," she said.

"I don't know where I'll go to get it done, whether I'll go to Jake [King] or to Dane Swan, I'm not sure," she said.

"I reckon Jake would do it for nothing for me. He's lovely."

Martin made history this year winning the Brownlow medal, the Norm Smith medal, and an AFL Premiership medal. He also took out the Jack Dyer medal as Richmond's best and fairest.

He also was awarded AFL Coaches Association's Player of the Year award, the Leigh Matthews trophy (AFLPA MVP), the Gary Ayres award (AFLCA best finals player) and an All Australian selection for 2017.

"Everything!" Mrs Knight said.

"We're proud of him. Very proud."

Mrs Knight 'tapes' every one of her grandson's games.

"In the off-season I think 'Oh I'd love to go to the football' so I get a DVD out, preferably one that they've won, and watch it."

Despite all the excitement, D-day for Nan won't be anytime soon.

"I have to get over the Grand Final and the Brownlow and the best and fairest first!" she said.

"I haven't even had time to sit down and watch the replay yet".
