Richmond captain Trent Cotchin opens up on expectations, fresh faces and finals footy in 2017

EVERY year at Punt Road, the conversation is more or less the same.

It revolves around pressure, expectancy, leadership and hope.

Aside from the coach, whose future is likely to be debated throughout the season ahead, the weight of such ambition falls heavier on no one else’s shoulders than the captain.

But for Trent Cotchin, set to enter his fifth year as Richmond skipper, there’s a different feel around the club going into season 2017.
