Marlion Pickett secured his 3rd medal in a fortnight as Richmond won their 3rd flag in 2 year, smashing the GWS Giants by 89 points to secure the premiership.

The mid-season recruit was best on ground in the VFL grand final last weekend before getting the call
up to make his debut in the AFL Grand Final.

The South Fremantle product didn’t look out of place on the big stage, nailing a set-shot and even dancing his way through the middle of the MCG before setting up Dustin Martin for a set-shot.
He finished the game with 22 disposals and a match high 8 inside-50’s.

Marlion spoke with the 6PR Football call team post game.

Dustin Martin secured the Norm Smith medal for his best on ground performance and 4 goals.

The final score Richmond 17.12.114 to GWS 3.7.25.
