Richmond's Duncan Kellaway was a courageous and highly determined footballer who excelled at negating the impact of his opponent, however highly rated. Originally from Glen Waverley Rovers, he made his AFL debut with the Tigers in 1993, and over the ensuing 12 years went on to play a total of 180 games and kick 12 goals. Relentlessly energetic and focused, he played his best football during the mid-1990s when he was widely acknowledged as one of the hardest players to beat, one on one, in the league.

Kellaway represented Victoria in 1995 and 1996, and was a key contributor to Richmond's 1995 finals campaign. He also served the club well when it next contested the finals in 2001. Although impeded to a certain extent by injuries later in his career, he always gave one hundred per cent effort when selected, and his retirement at the end of a 2004 season that saw him manage just one game all year represented a sad blow for the Tigers.
