Kevin Bartlett is credited with 40 kicks, 5 goals. Bill Brown also kicked 5 goals.
A new Tiger skin is installed at the Richmond training room at the MCG, after the previous one was slashed after the Collingwood Preliminary Final (all that remained was a paw). Alan Schwab says the destroyed Tiger Skin was given to the club around 20 years earlier, and is valued at $1,000.
Ray Dunn donated this tiger skin which he received from Malaya in 1968. It is kept in Charlie Callander's possession until the day of the Grand Final.
