Richmond recruit Troy Chaplin says the chance to play finals and push for an AFL premiership lured him to the Tigers.
The ex-Port Adelaide 26-year-old backman has already played more AFL finals (five) than anyone else at Richmond, who are enduring the competition's longest ongoing drought, having last reached the post-season in 2001.
The only four Tigers with finals experience - Chaplin, fellow new recruit Chris Knights, Ivan Maric and Shaun Grigg - gained it elsewhere.
But Chaplin, poached from the struggling Power as a free agent to shore up Richmond's defence, believes that is about to change.
"Their list is in a fantastic position at the moment," Chaplin told Melbourne's SEN radio on Wednesday.
"There's the guys that they've brought in and added, but not only that, their younger guys as well, guys like Trent Cotchin, he's going to be a superstar of the competition, we all know that.
"They are starting to add some depth now and they're on the cusp of playing finals and that was something I really want to do.
"I've been lucky enough to play a handful of finals games with Port Adelaide.
"But I'm really looking forward to hopefully getting Richmond back into the finals and maybe pushing for a flag in the next couple of years."
Chaplin, from the regional Victorian town of Maryborough, said the chance to play regularly in front of 60,000-plus crowds at the MCG was also too good to let slip.
That will be a marked contrast from his recent experience with Port, whose home attendances rarely topped 20,000 this year.
"It's been pretty tough the last couple of years with Port Adelaide," Chaplin said.
The big-bodied defender was also looking forward to being coached by Damien Hardwick, whose playing career at the Power overlapped with Chaplin's for one season.
Chaplin said at that stage, in 2004, Hardwick was a quiet and reserved character, but even then his opinions on football commanded respect.
