Dealing with adversity can help turn good leaders into great ones. At the end of 2016, Richmond Captain, Trent Cotchin reached a crossroads, questioning his capacity to lead, but his courage and honesty have helped him become a better leader.

With Cotchin more comfortable than ever as Captain, and the team playing consistently well, the Tigers look set to break their recent finals hoodoo.

“The legacy that I’d like to leave behind is that I was someone who set out to get the best out of others, because I think if I do that, one, I’ll feel fulfilled, and two, I think we’ll fulfil what we’ve set out to achieve.”

“Ultimately, I’m chasing that premiership cup. Every little bit of blood, sweat and tears goes into the ultimate success.”
