AFL 2017 Round 08 - Richmond v Fremantle

Richmond defender Alex Rance against Fremantle last Sunday.

The intensive attention to defensive detail of star Richmond key backman Alex Rance is highlighted through his impressive efforts in the one-percenters’ category this season.

One third of the way through the 2017 home-and-away rounds, Rance is ranked a clear No. 1 for one-percenters (knock-ons, spoils, smothers, shepherds) in the competition.

After finishing with 14 one-percenters against Fremantle at the MCG last Sunday, he now has a total of 91 in eight games, which is 16 ahead of his nearest rival, Port Adelaide’s Thomas Jonas.

Rance, an All-Australian representative for the past three years, was ranked No. 1 overall for one-percenters competition-wide in 2015 and was eighth last season.
