In his eight years at the Richmond Football Club, Rnace has been lauded by fans for his courage, hard running and defensive skills. Originally from the Swans Districts Football Club, Rance was drafted to the Tigers with the 17th pick in the 2007 AFL Draft.
Rance was made to spend his first season in the VFL before earning his debut in round 2, 2008 against Geelong. Since then Rance has gone on to play 250 games and become one of the best full backs the AFL has seen.
2014 was the first year that Rance elevated himself to the elite category, winning his first of five All-Australian Selections and then winning the Tigers Best and Fairest in 2015. Rance stayed loyal to the Tigers through some tough years before being rewarded with a premiership medal in 2017 where he was crucial keeping Taylor Walker to two goals.
Unfortunately in his 250th game in round 1, 2019 Rance tore his ACL which looks to be season ending. Luckily Rance is much loved within the AFL community which will provide him with many opportunities off the field in season 2019.
