2019 Player Countdown

Cotchin doesn't get beaten. Sprawled out on the ground he throws out a hand and gets a finger tip to the ball causing the opponent to momentarily lose control and in a flash he is up and taking possession

Beast of a contested ball player

his value is different to Dusty and they complement each other beautifully for our benefit
they are both great to watch closely

remember the times when we just wished we could have someone like Gary Ablett jnr , winning games , wowing the football world, winning brownlows
while our best player was lucky to poll 10 votes ?

we are in privileged times :-)

Jack Riewoldt - is best is so spectacular
he burst onto the scene with his speccy marks and still takes plenty of them today

he has his moments with set shots , he can kick some very tough goals and then miss a soda or have a real off game

then he took to being unselfish , getting that balance right hasn't been easy , while opportunities do get butchered
he brings players into the game , that seems to further the chaos thing in our forward line and creates a great culture in the team

in traffic Jack can do some very deft little touches and really does create opportunities

I would rate him as one of our four truly elite players ie (Dusty , Cotch , Rance & Jack)

Wouldn't you have Lynch in there @ceehook? It'll be interesting to see who wins the goal kicking this year - or if JR can get his 10th in a row.

With just one week to go we have #7 Dan Butler

Dan is 182cm and 80kg. His DOB is 3/6/1996 so will turn 23 around the middle of the season.

He is from Lake Wendouree (Vic) via North Ballarat U18. Came to us at pick #67 in the 2014 National Draft

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

Has played 38 games with 15 in 2018. Has kicked 48 Career goals with 18 in 2018

Injuries cut his season short last season. Has started with rust still in his game. Very quick and applies great pressure, especially when working with Castagna

Lynch hasn't played a game for us yet

Dan Butler - each of our smalls brings something different to the table

Butler seems to be in the right place at the right time at important moments

he doesn't bring the marking that Castagna brings
I don't think he is creative like Rioli is

But he appears to be good at getting free from his direct opponent and not so much fierce tackling but is good at creating pressure on opposition players in possession

On Saturday night Terry Wallace I think was putting Butler as our best small forward.
Ahead of Baker & Castagna I'd agree with but Higgins and Rioli a definite no

He drew criticism for his performance in JLT 1 but seemed to improve in JLT 2

With 38 games under his belt and I don't think he had a lot of VFL games he will still be maturing and hopefully that helps with his consistency

I note after injury he was straight back in the top side so he is highly regarded by the match committee

Great effort @Gracie and @ceehook apologies that I couldn't be around. Anyway good time to come back with Daniel Butler, we missed him more than many realise last year and in the premiership year finished top 10 in the Jack Dyer and was up there again prior to injury last year.

Welcome back Vossy. All is well????

Today we have Mr Second Ruck as he will now be forever known #6 Shaun Grigg

Shaun is 190cm and 85kg. His DOB is 19/04/1988 so will turn 31 next month.

Hails from Redan (Vic) via North Ballarat U18 via @#$%ton. Came to the Tigers in 2010 in a trade for Andrew Collins. Originally taken at pick #19 in the 2006 draft.

Premiership player and Richmond Football Club Life Member
International Rules 2011
Rising Star nominee 2008

Has played 214 AFL games with 22 in 2018 and 171 for the Tigers. Has kicked 96 career goals with 3 in 2018.

Hasn't missed many games since coming to us but is carrying an injury now which looks likely to keep him out of the side for a while.

Grigg becomes the third (that I can recall) Richmond player to play in a way that made the AFL change the rules. Bartlett and Bowden being the other two.
