Former star centre half-forward Royce Hart has been awarded Richmond's highest honour, as he was elevated to immortal status in the AFL club's hall of fame.

Hart joined fellow club greats Jack Dyer, Kevin Bartlett, Tommy Hafey and Francis Bourke in receiving the honour.

Hart was a champion key forward noted for his high marking, and played 187 games from 1967-77, for 369 goals, and a part in four premiership sides.

He captained the Tigers to back-to-back flags in 1973-74.

Hart was honoured at Richmond's hall of fame and season launch dinner on Monday night.

In other presentations, premiership defender Kevin O'Neill and 1980 flag stars Jim Jess and Geoff Raines were all inducted into the club's hall of fame.
