Following the news that Trent Cotchin will step away from his role as Richmond captain, the Midweek Rub panel discussed the candidates in line to replace the three-time premiership skipper.

Damian BarrettĀ discussed "the changing of the guard" being setup for Dustin Martin to move into the role.

"I reckon we're going to have a captain for the first time in the history of the AFL who just doesn't do any media." Barrett said.

"I think it's handing the reigns over to Jack Graham who they love internally." Montagna said.

"He oozes leadership."
