They won’t want to lose this one: Sheeds tips the Tigers
The godfather of Greater Western Sydney, and former Richmond player, Kevin Sheedy has tipped the Tigers to win Saturday’s AFL Grand Final, but says the GWS song is superior.
Sheedy helped set up the club less than 10 years ago, having a say in the team colours, “we’re not taking pink”, and the theme song “they’re a hell of a lot better than Fremantle’s”.
