] . Roach won the goalkicking award at Richmond on seven occasions; in 1980 kicked the highest individual season goal tally in Tiger history and became only the second Richmond full forward to kick over 100 goals in a season; and is the only Richmond player to win the VFL/AFL goalkicking award twice.

Richmond's best pre-war full forward, Jack Titus, led the goalkicking at Richmond on eleven occasions. Current Richmond forward Matthew Richardson has been the club's leading goalkicker on thirteen occasions.

Former Richmond captain Jeff Hogg won the award five times and a number of players were the club's leading goalkicker for the season on three occasions - George Bayliss, Doug Strang, Dick Harris, Ray Poulter, Bob Dummett, Ted Langridge and Kevin Bartlett.
