Tigers lock in Astbury, McIntosh

Best of McIntosh Kamdyn McIntosh has extended his contract until the end of the 2021 season.

Richmond premiership players David Astbury and Kamdyn McIntosh have both signed new deals, tying them to the Club until the end of 2021.

The two-year extension will take Astbury, 28, into his 11th and 12th seasons at the Swinburne Centre, after he arrived via selection No. 35 overall in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft.

Renowned as one of the competition’s most reliable and disciplined defenders, Astbury has played 119 games for Richmond, including all 25 during the drought-breaking 2017 campaign.

McIntosh has been a mainstay in the Richmond lineup since debuting in Round 1 2015, a season he also received the Cosgrove-Jenkins Award as the Tigers’ best first year player.

This year, the 25-year-old wingman sits sixth at the Club for one percenters, fifth for tackles and third for inside 50s, underlining his importance.

"Kamdyn and Dave have both been consistent contributors for a number of years and are both popular and important members of our playing group," Richmond List Manager, Blair Hartley said.

"They're extremely hardworking and determined players, that have set a high standard for their teammates.

"We look forward to watching them across the next two seasons as we continue to push for more success."
