Richmond has used its second selection (No. 43 overall) in the 2018 national draft to recruit Oakleigh Chargers midfielder, Jack Ross.
Here is a summary of what Richmond fans can expect to see from Ross on-field...
Club: Oakleigh Chargers
Jack is from the Oakleigh Chargers/Caulfield Grammar and first displayed his talents as captain of the Vic Metro U16 side in 2016. This year he displayed strong form in the midfield with Oakleigh and won their Best and Fairest, despite only playing 12 games, averaging 22 possessions and 5 clearances a game.
He is a big-bodied midfielder who excels in and around the ball. He has great composure with ball in hand and is one of the better handballers in this year’s draft. He tested very well for speed at the State Combine and uses it to break away from stoppage.
We are very happy with the addition of Jack to our midfield group. He is a fantastic size for an inside midfielder, has football smarts, skill and leadership.
