FANTASY Pig Tom Rockliff announced his retirement last week and this week on the AFL Fantasy podcast, the Traders catch-up with the great man to reminisce about the good old days.
They reflect on his 2014 season where he set a Fantasy record averaging 133.5 across the year and the time that Rockliff predicted his score of 180.
Rockliff talks about adjusting to his nickname over the latter stages of his career from being oinked at by his coach and random people passing by, to explaining to his wife, how being called a pig is actually a compliment.
The show must go on though and for some Fantasy coaches this week, It’s Grand Final week and the Traders have dissected the round ahead to set you up for Fantasy success.
