Shai Bolton is on track to finish with the most goals in a season by a Richmond small forward since the mid-1990s.

The dual Tiger excitement machine currently has 33 goals (33.29) for the year, which is just two behind Nathan Brown and Sam Lloyd, who both kicked 35 goals in a season (Brown in 2008, Lloyd in 2016).

Previous to that, Chris Naish booted 42 goals in the 1995 season and 34 in 1996.

Also, in ’95, Nick Daffy won Richmond’s leading goalkicker award with 45 goals.

Bolton has kicked multiple goals 13 times this season, including last Friday night against Fremantle at Marvel Stadium, where he finished with a game-high two goals in the low-scoring draw.

Apart from those two precious six-pointers, Bolton also had 15 disposals, eight contested possessions, a game-high six inside-50s, six score involvements and 284 metres gained.

Overall, this season, he is averaging 18.2 disposals, 9.7 contested possessions, 4.4 inside-50s, 3.8 clearances, 1.8 goals, 7.4 score involvements and 360.4 metres gained per match.

He is ranked fifth in the competition for score involvements and 10th for goal assists.
