Active Games Record Holders For Jumper Numbers
The distinction is held by Nick Riewoldt, Daniel Wells and Dale Morris
There are three active AFL players who hold the record for most games played in their respective jumper numbers – Nick Riewoldt, Daniel Wells and Dale Morris.
Riewoldt has played all 319 of his career games in No.12 – 25 clear of Richmond legend Jack Titus (294) and 37 clear of another champion Tiger Matthew Richardson (282).
Wells also played each one of his 243 senior games in the No.8 jersey – five clear of two-time premiership Bomber Darren Bewick (238) and nine clear of former St Kilda defender Max Hudghton (234).
Now that Wells is at Collingwood, he is unlikely to add to his tally of games in No.8 as Magpies youngster Tom Langdon currently has that jumper number.
And Morris (230 games) is well out in front in the No.38 jumper – 64 clear of former Fitzroy player Leon Harris (166).
Meanwhile, Riewoldt, Wells and Morris look set to be joined by five other active players in 2017 as games record holders for their jumper numbers.
Geelong defender Andrew Mackie (257) is just eight games behind Mick Martyn (265) who holds the record for No.4.
Cats captain Joel Selwood (228) is just nine games behind South Melbourne legend Bob Skiltion (237) who hold the record for No.14.
Hawthorn skipper Luke Hodge (286) is only 12 games behind former Hawthorn defender Kelvin Moore (298) who holds the record for No.15.
Fremantle captain David Mundy (251) is just five games behind Brisbane Lions champion Jonathan Brown (256) who holds the record for No.16.
And Geelong utility Mark Blicavs (90) is just 10 games behind former Fremantle player Clancee Pearce (100) who holds the record for No.46.
