Richmond premiership player Marlion Pickett, who won a flag with the Tigers in his first league game, has been staying in Harvey with family.

Pickett had quite the day out in last year’s grand final. After being the first player in 67 years to debut and win a premiership, he also finished third in the Norm Smith Medal and became an immediate Richmond life member.

The mercurial Tiger was spotted in Harvey with his children earlier this month.

Pickett’s manager Anthony Van Der Wielen confirmed Pickett was in town and said he was “self-isolating after coming back from over east”.

Mr Van Der Wielen also said the Tigers’ midfielder was running laps around the Harvey Recreation Ground to maintain his fitness.
