Where's Black when you need him? It could be a good year for Bachar. Looks like he's kept his speed and his smarts will be better than ever.

He played well in the Mids in the VFL in the later part of the year
I saw him in the GWS game in Sydney and he didn't look out of place
The only trouble was we , as a team were very flat and GWS were very pumped and switched on
which meant not as many opportunities for a our forwards

Yeah, you do wonder where he's gonna be at this year. He may struggle.

Today we are at unlucky for some #13 but not for Jack Higgins

More famous for what he says right now but looking likely that his football will over take that reputation very soon.

Jack is 177cm and 76kg. DOB is 19/3/1999 so just about to turn 20.

He hails from East Malvern (Vic) via Oakleigh Chargers U18. Taken at pick #17 in the 2017 Draft

Rising star nominee in 2018 (unlucky I thought)

He has now played 20 AFL games and kicked 15 career goals.

Earmarked for more midfield time in 2019 he didn't waste the off season hiring a running coach.

Going to be some ride watching Jack over the next 12/15 years

Saturday we had #12 David Astbury

David is 195cm and 96kg. He was born 26/02/1991 so just turned 28.

Hails from Tatyoon (Vic) via North Ballarat U18. Was taken at pick #35 in the 2009 National Draft

Premiership player and Richmond Football Club Life Member

Has played 107 AFL games with 22 in 2018. Has kicked 8 career goals with none in 2018

Part of one of the best defences in the AFL.

Yesterday was #11 Jason Castagna

Jason is 181cm and 80kg/ DOB us 12/7/1996 so will turn 23 in the middle of the season. another pup

From Warrandyte (Vic) via Marcellin College (Vic) via Northern U18. Taken at #29 in the 2015 Rookie Draft. Elevated to the main list at the end of 2017

Premiership player and Richmond Football Club Life Member. Rising star nominee 2017

Has played 52 AFL games with 22 in 2018. Has kicked 54 Career goals with 26 in 2018

Battling injury right now so will miss the opening few rounds this year.

And today we have #10 Shane Edwards

Shane is 182cm and 81kg. DOB is 25/10/1988 so will be 30 for all of this season

He hails from Golden Grove (SA) via North Adelaide (SANFL)

Premiership Player and Richmond Football Club Life Member

Has played 231 AFL games 24 in 2018. Has kicked 154 career goals 14 in 2018

A lot of what he does is largely missed as he is so good with his hands and thinking two steps in front of everyone else.

Higgins - goal of the century V Collingwood and the fact it got up Eddie's goat made it even sweeter

Higgin's is short in stature but tall on desire , I see likenesses with Boomer Harvey , and for me that is increasing as he is getting more midfield time

Astbury - has developed a special relationship with Rance , Grimmes , Vlastuin and Houli , with all taking turns in going third up and often providing blocks for the others (and Broad looks like joining that group)

They lock down on most tall forwards with great effect.

Astbury had a well documented long battle with injury but once right steadily developed into our Rock in defense.

I'm sure all Tigers fans would join me in saying I hope it continues

Castagna - has some serious straight line pace , he makes you close your eyes when taking a set shot and when on the run with ball in hand can run himself into trouble ,
having said all that he still found himself in the 2017 premiers top 22 and the 2018 minors premiers top 22.

He teases us with his marking ability and his presence is an important piece of introducing panic into opposition sides.

He does however face serious competition for a spot , with Lynch coming into the front six the remaining small forwards have to battle it out and add Baker to the mix and Rioli ready for a full year.

I can see him having to come back thru the VFL and that might not be a bad thing .
A stint in the VFL make give him the opportunity to tidy up a few parts of his game

Shane Edwards - how many pages at Yellow and Black have been devoted to the love or hate of Shane.

He seems to have tidied up his panic disposals and pulled back on unrealistic attempts that caught the ire of some supporters

He finished 4th in the Jack Dyer last year , with Jack Riewoldt winning , Dusty being up there and the side being minor premiers that's elite company and no mean feat

He must be good on the dance floor because he is so light on his feet and thinks so quick in traffic

more of the same please

back in the day we had "St Francis"

do we now have Saint Cotch :-)

I think he got a goal with his first kick

He also has much praise in his early games and watching on tv I wasn't seeing it
later that season first season of his I saw him V Lions at Etihad
he receives something of a hospital pass , is surrounded by four defenders
he runs a figure 8 to evade the tacklers , had to take a couple of bounces during this and then
as he was getting caught nailed a 40 meter handpass to the closest team mate
I posted here "he is a future brownlow winner"
that and a few other pieces of play and I was a convert

He has his ups and downs , the downs being the over use of dinky little kicks , the constant questioning of his captaincy

but he has lengthened his kicking , he plays hard(lead by example) , he cares about him team and that care is now taken as genuine and team building ,
and he and Dusty now inject themselves or impose themselves on games at critical times

he's pretty much loved by the media and the Richmond faithful alike
