Tiger trio sign on

Grigg, Houli, Markov re-sign Watch highlights from Shaun Grigg, Bachar Houli and Oleg Markov.

Richmond has re-signed premiership players Shaun Grigg and Bachar Houli, along with emerging Tiger, Oleg Markov.

Markov has signed a two-year deal, while 30-year-olds Houli and Grigg have both signed one-year contracts.

Minor calf and knee injuries interrupted Markov’s 2018 campaign, however the 22-year-old wing/half-back played 10 games for Richmond's VFL side, including two finals.

Grigg, a 213-game premiership player has been a consistent contributor in season 2018, showing his versatility in the midfield once again by supporting Toby Nankervis in the ruck.

Houli returned to his rebound-defending duties for the final three home-and-away games, and was an important player in the Tigers' qualifying final win over Hawthorn after overcoming a groin injury in the middle of the season.

“We’re really pleased that Shaun, Bachar and Oleg will continue their football journeys with Richmond, they’re fantastic players and people,” Richmond General Manager – Football, Neil Balme said.

“Oleg is an exciting young talent and we’re really happy with how he’s tracking. We’re looking forward to seeing him continue his development next season and beyond.

“Bachar and Shaun provide such great experience and leadership for us in addition to their on-field contributions, so we’re rapt they’ve signed on for next season.”
