And today - the big one - with 31 days to go we have the mighty #34 cement truck/fridge/black night (tis but a scratch) Jack Graham

Jack's DOB is 25 February 1998, so he is just about to turn 22!!!! 22 man he seems to have been around a while. He is 181cm and 82kg and has played 39 games debuting late in 2017. He is from Tea Tree Gully SA via North Adelaide SANFL

Averages 15.2 disposals 17 in 2019, 6.5 tackles 7.1 in 2019 Elite level. Has kicked 19 career goals - 3 in the 2017 Grand Final

Premiership player and life member of the Richmond Football Club

Dislocated his shoulder in late 2018 and made it back for the finals but was below best. Again dislocated his shoulder in the 2019 Preliminary Final but played the game out. Forever in Richmond folklore as a result according to Hardwick

Worried about his injuries to his shoulders. The way he plays he is in danger of a short career but love his pressure on the player. Also showed some good linking play in 2019. At 22 and if his shoulders stay good he has more improvement in him.

Down to 30 days to go. Kamdyn McIntosh #33 is next up

Kamdyn's DOB is 3 April 1994 so will soon turn 26. He is 191cm and 91kg. Has played 90 AFL games and kicked 26 career goals.

Averages 14.8 disposals and 2.7 tackles.

Premiership player and life member of the Richmond Football Club

Hard tough player runs all day. Lost his spot in the top 22 in round 18 and never got back in. Obviously he still has a lot to offer but the swarm of kids is coming and his lower skill execution may cost him. Can he benefit from Ellis leaving or is he destine for a player 20 to 25 role??

At 29 to go Luke English #32 is next

Luke's DOB 20 August 2000 so is 19 for most of the season. He is 182cm and 80kg Yet to debut

Luke was taken at pick #62 in the 2018 National Draft. He is from Manning JFC WA via Perth WAFL

Had Glander Fever in his draft year but still made under 18 All Australian. Peter Summich likened him to Matt Priddis. Draft notes have him with good endurance and meets the good bloke test.

Other than that not much to report. His profile picture has him ealry stages of a mo and looks a lot like Oleg

Yesterday was 28 days to go and Oleg Markov #31

Oleg's DOB is 8 May 1996 so will be 24 this season. The time is now one would suspect. He is 188cm and 82kg. Has played 17 AFL games

Averages 13.1 disposals and makes 1.4 tackles. Has kicked 3 career goals

Oleg was taken at pick #50 in the 2015 National Draft. He is from Gepps Cross SA via North Adelaide SANFL

From comments about yesterday's intra club match Oleg played well against the reigning premiers. Liked him when he first started. Did a side step to get out of trouble that most can't do. However has not come on as expected and this year surely is his last chance saloon. There is a wing spot open and he should be fully ready to go. Just needs to seize the opportunity.

Not many recent vids on Markov. This is from last year

# 29 Shai Bolton is next with 27 days to go

Shai's DOB is 8 December 1998 so only turned 21 in December. 21??!!!! Shai is 175cm 77kg. He has played 28 AFL games and Kicked 19 career goals.

He averages 12.2 disposals and makes 3 tackles

Shai came to Richmond at pick #29 in the 2016 National draft. He is from Forrestdale WA Via South Fremantle WAFL

Premiership player and Life Member of the Richmond Football Club

Big wraps from everyone on his performance in yesterday's intra club match. Can't remember who (think it was Cotchin) saying once he gets his head fully around the game plan he will explode. Seemingly set for a big 2020. We can only watch in awe :D

Saturday was 26 days to go and next up is #28 Fraser Turner

Fraser's DOB is 26 December 2000 so just turned 19. He is 186cm 75kg

Taken at #58 in the 2018 National Draft. Turner is yet to debut. Has good running ability and uses the ball well. He was the youngest player drafted in 2018 and was well behind some of the other draftees in development. Now that he has 2019 under his belt I, for one, am expecting some sharp improvement from Fraser over 2020. Might not get there this year but a spot on the wing in the top side is his goal

Sunday we had up new boy #27 Thomson Dow. 25 days to go

Thomson"s DOB is 16 October 2001. So 18 all the way through this season. 182cm 72kg. Yet to debut.

Taken at pick #21 in the 2019 National Draft. He is from Bendigo Pioneers.

Light frame should mean Thomson spends all of 2020 in the VFL and in the Gym. Has shown enough early on to get the attention of training watchers.

Unfortunately Thomson;s Richmond website profile is empty so no videos

And today is 24 days to go and we have #26 Riley Collier Dawkins

Riley's DOB is 3 February 2000, so just turned 20. He is recorded as 189cm and 89kg on the Richmond site but some have him now at 191cm and 94kg!!!!!!

He was taken at #20 in the 2018 National Draft. He hails from Waverley Blues Vic via Salesian College Vic via Oakleigh Under 18

Yet to debut

The club selected Riley at centre in the twos from the start of the VFL season and kept playing him there right through even though there were better options for that position. He obviously struggled early on but by the time the VFL grand final came around he was proving the selectors right. Big wraps on him from pre-season reports and he in now knocking on the door for senior selection. Going to be interesting 2020 for him. A tall inside midfielder is just what we are looking for.

22 days to go (getting excited yet?) Kane Lambert #23 is next

Kane's DOB is 26 November 1991 so Kane is 28 for all this season. He is 178cm 77kg. Has played 95 AFL games and Kicked 61 career goals. Averages 19.9 possessions which is elite and 3.5 tackles which is above average.

Kane was taken at pick #56 in the 2015 Rookie Draft then elevated to the main list at the end of 2015. He is from Preston Vic via Northern U18 via Northern Blues VFL via Williamstown VFL

Two time premiership player and life member of the Richmond Football Club

Kane has been a great selection and is a key member of the team and how the game plan runs. If I was an opposition coach he would be one I would be tagging.

Three weeks to go!!!!!!!!! Today we have #22 Josh Caddy

Josh's DOB is 28 September 1992 so he is 27 for all this season. He is 186cm 87kg. Josh has played 157 AFL games 62 for Richmond. He has kicked 160 career goals. He averages 17.1 disposals and 3.5tackles

Caddy was originally drafted by The Suns at #7 in the 2010 National Draft. He was then traded to Geelong in exchange for a 2010 First Round Compensation pick (the one Geelong got for trading Ablett to the Suns) plus pick #57. Then in the 2016 National Draft he was traded to Richmond for pick #26 (which Geelong used to pick Parfitt) and pick #60 (Narkle). He is originally from Eltham Vic

Two time premiership player and Life Member of the Richmond Football Club

Caddy wasn't even on the radar until Deledio wanted to get to Geelong. Boy have we won out of that trade. Caddy the Mr Fixit of the Team. Went forward in 2018 and kicked 47 goals and then reinvented himself as a wingman in 2019. Loves the physical and verbal contests with the opposition. Smart footballer. Worth every cent we are paying him.

20 days to go and next up is #21 Noah Balta

Noah's DOB is 23 October 1999 so he will be 20 for the whole season and still a baby in talls sense. He is 194cm and 100kg....big boy. He has played 13 AFL games and kicked 6 career goals all in 2019. He averages 9.3 disposals and 2.3 tackles

He was taken at #25 in the 2017 National Draft. He is from Essendon Doutta Stars Vic via Calder U18

Noah played from round 1 last year through to the bye. Took a few rounds to get going but had a good 4 week block from rounds 6 to 9 with round 9 being the Dreamtime game. Noah had his best game then 18 disposals (16 contested possessions in that figure!!!) 5 tackles 12 hitouts. Dropped away in the remaining games to the bye then was dropped back to the VFL. Interestingly he has a high percentage of kicks, which is right given he loves to get the ball and take off at speed.

Training reports have him in the back line and he will be the big winner from the Rance retirement.

Saturday was 19 days to go and now we have #20 Ivan Soldo

Ivan's DOB is 14 April 1996. So will turn 24 next month. Still young in ruck terms. He is 204cm and 106kg. He has played 22 games 14 in 2019. He has kicked 7 career goals. Averages 8.27 disposals, 3.46 tackles and 24.9 hitouts

Ivan's uncle Ivan Maric tipped the club to his nephews potential. Up until then Soldo was a basketballer with no or very minimal exposure to Aussie Rules. Richmond took the punt and signed him to a three year non-registered selection in the 2015 Rookie Draft. Pick #68. He was then elevated to the main list in the 2017 National Draft.

Ivan's development has been slow and steady wins the race. He was a whipping boy for the first 4 years but in 2019 he took big strides to gain the number 1 ruck mantle. Proves hard work wins every day.

Yesterday we had 18 days to go and #19 Tom Lynch is up

Tom's DOB is 31 October 1992. So he will be 27 for the whole season. Interestingly he has the same DOB as Jack Riewoldt. Tom is 199cm and 99kg. He has played 156 AFL 25 for Richmond. He has 317 career goals 63 for Richmond. He averages 13.8 disposals which is above average and 1.7 tackles which is below average but we have him for other strengthens. He averages 2 goals per game which is above average but his 63 goals last season put him in the elite category.

Tom was originally selected at pick #11 by The Suns in the 2010 National Draft. He was traded to Richmond in the 2018 National Trade period as a free agent. Was Suns BnF 2015 and 2016. He led their Goal kicking 2014 to 2017. All Australian in 2016 and was co-captaion of The Suns 2017-2018

Premiership player and Life Member of the Richmond Football Club

He had knee surgery in July 2018 and his preseason was delay to literally the week before the season started. He was obviously not fit in the early part of the season but the club managed him beautiful and he was fully fit and in full flight by the finals. in the 13 games before the bye last year he kicked 28 goals. In the 9 games after the bye he kicked 21 and then 14 in the 3 finals games, including the match winning 5 against Geelong in the Pre-Lim

Put simply in Lynch did not play before the bye we would not have won enough games to get to the top 4. And then he was one of our best in the finals. Every cent we are paying Tom over the next 5or6 years was earned in 2019

At 16 days to go we have #17 Daniel Rioli

Daniel's DOB is 16 April 1997 so just about to turn 23. Still a pup. He is 179cm 76kg. He has played 77 AFL games and kicked 68 career goals. 11.5 possessions which is below average but in 2019 his average was 11.9 which is rated average so not much in it. Averages 3.2 tackles.

He was taken at pick #15 in the 2015 National Draft. He was nominate as a Rising Star in 2016. He is originally from St Marys NT via East Point Vic via St Pats College Vic via North Ballarat Vic

Dual Premiership player and Life Member of the Richmond Football Club

Cops some flak from supporters as he does not seem to do much. However they do not watch him closely enough. His selfless running, harrassing and pressure allows others to shine and stops the opposition forward movement. He is a beauty and at 23 he has so much more to offer. Proven finals performer.

How about this - Tom Lynch is second at Richmond for number of consecutive games played - 25. Only Dion Prestia at 28 has played more. Last years injuries hit hard.

Today is 15 days to go and we have #15 Jayden Short next up

Jayden's DOB is 24 January 1996 so only recently turned 24. He is 178cm and 76kg. He has played 71 AFL games and kicked 20 career goals. He averages 17.2 disposals which is average. He has an average of 1.6 tackles which is below average. However he also has an average of 429.7 metres gained which is elite.

He came to us at pick #11 in the 2015 Rookie draft and was elevated to the main list at the end of 2016. He is originally from Bundoora Vic via Northern U18

Slotted in well in the defensive unit. Loves to run and kick but loves a sneaky goal from outside 50m the most.
