Player Bio

After reinvigorating his career as a key defender in 2012, Griffiths managed only one AFL game in 2013. The 200cm Tiger spent the majority of the year in the VFL where he was used both forward and in defence. A booming kick who can open up space on his opponent, Richmond is keen for him to cement himself as a tall forward.

Draft history:
2009 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Richmond) No. 19 overall.
