Deledio All-Australian

Brett Deledio4Richmond has three players in the 2015 All-Australian team, which was announced tonight.

Alex Rance, Jack Riewoldt and Brett Deledio have each gained All-Australian selection for the second time in their AFL careers.

Deledio has followed up his inaugural All-Australian selection in 2012, with a place on the interchange bench in this year’s team.

The talented Tiger playmaker averaged 21.6 disposals and 5.9 marks in the 2015 season and finished with 27 goals.

He was one of just 10 players throughout the competition to average 20-plus disposals, along with a goal a game, which further underlines his class and overall importance to the Richmond side.

His move to a permanent high half-forward role (and just an occasional stint in the midfield), has provided the Tigers with a major boost.
