Patrick Naish, a father-son prospect
for the Tigers in 2017, says he has become accustomed to the thought of potentially being part of Richmond in the near future.
"Last year I got rid of the 'wow factor' and have viewed them as possible teammates. I forgot about their status in a way and focused on my own footy and my progress and getting the best out of myself while I am there," Naish said.
"I've got to know them on a really personal basis, including 'Dimma' (coach Damien Hardwick), and it's good to chat to them. They've said work on the things you need to, but don't forget the things you are good at and keep trying to make them elite."
