Graham back in strong style

Wins of 2018: R21 Watch the highlights from the Round 21 win over Gold Coast.

Talented, tough Tiger cub Jack Graham had an instant impact in his return to the playing field against Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium yesterday after missing four games with a dislocated shoulder.

Graham provided his trademark grunt through the midfield for Richmond and was a valuable contributor in the team’s 74-point victory.

The 20-year-old finished the match with 19 disposals, seven score involvements and a game-high 60 pressure points.

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick was suitably impressed with Graham’s efforts across the four quarters.

“You can see why Jack Graham’s such an important player to us,” Hardwick said.

“His pressure points are high, his ability to pressure the ball is really good, and he makes players around him better.”
