Richmond let Tivendale go

Richmond have decided to part ways with veteran AFL midfielder Greg Tivendale and will give him a farewell match against Melbourne on Sunday.

With the Tigers' midfield full of promising youngsters, the 29-year-old has managed to break into the senior side just twice this season, most recently in round 11.

Just like Melbourne players Adem Yze and Jeff White - who are leaving the Demons after the same match - Tivendale is hoping it is not the end of his AFL career.

"I'd like to think that people would think of me as a good servant of the Richmond Football Club and a good quality player that has done his best for Richmond," Tivendale said.

"My form has been pretty good this year, so I'm not going to cancel out a chance of going on next year. I'll put my hat in the ring and see what happens."

Tivendale came off the rookie list to make his debut in 1998 and has played 187 AFL games, the fifth-most of any current Tigers player.

"Greg has been one of the big success stories of the AFL rookie system and his leadership and dedication over the years has been second to none," Richmond coach Terry Wallace said.
