Molly Meldrum shows Dustin Martin support at AFL breakfast

He’s the Australian entertainment icon who is famously one of St Kilda Football Club’s biggest supporters. 

But Molly Meldrum was firmly in the Richmond Tigers camp ahead of their AFL grand final showdown against the Adelaide Crows.

The 74-year-old attended the annual North Melbourne Grand Final Breakfast on Saturday morning, showing his support for Tigers star, Dustin Martin, carrying a figurine of the Brownlow medalist.

Molly was seen walking into the event holding a figurine of the newly crowned Brownlow Medalist. 

And printed in block letters on his black t-shirt was the term ‘don’t argue’ – a tribute to Dustin’s trademark ability to fend off tackles.  

The music legend wore the t-shirt on top of a black collared shirt, and completed his outfit with his fashion staple – a cowboy hat.

His appearance at the event came after he claimed to have ‘been a Richmond boy’ for the past 35 years.

The Richmond resident painted his famous front fence – which is usually decorated in the black, white and red of St Kilda –  in the yellow and black of the Tigers, Triple M reported.

‘I still love the Saints, but have been a Richmond boy for 35 years,’ his fence reads. 

‘As my dear friend Katy Perry would sing… Let the Richmond Tigers roar!’   

Joining Molly on the long list of footy fans who prepared for the big occasion was Bec Judd, who took to Instagram hours before the match to share a snap of her beauty regime.

‘Prepping the face for a big day at the ‘G’, the AFL WAG wrote, accompanied by a picture of products from The Skincare Company.

The multi-talented mum-of-four is married to former Carlton star Chris Judd, but appeared to attend the game at the MCG in the company of friends.

Meanwhile, it appeared Bachelor runner-up Elise Stacy would also be taking a seat at the stadium to watch the match live.  

The beauty took to social media showing her support for the Adelaide Crows, wearing a team scarf as she touched down in Melbourne.
