Richmond defender Alex Rance has come under fire in the last two week with accusations of diving.
He was fined for staging after the Dream Time game against Essendon, and last night an incident with Charlie Dixon caught some attention in their loss to Port Adelaide.
Watch it here:
Speaking on his show Dead Set Legends with Jay Clark this morning, St Kilda legend Leigh Montagna defended Rance over the allegations.
“There was nothing in it,” Joey said.
“It’s the way he plays… yes, last week was a bit over the top.
“But he throws himself at everything anyway.
“That’s just the way he plays his football, we’ve seen it throughout his whole career.”
