Richmond defender and 2017 Premiership player Alex Rance has announced his retirement effective immediately.
The former Swan Districts player, and son of Murray Rance, says he wants to focus on his family and his faith.
AFL players started writing dedications to the 200-gamer.
Congrats on your career Rancey! Proud of what you’ve achieved mate, from the black ducks to the @Richmond_FC keep pursuing that faith and fulfilling that family life!
