Jake Aarts is having significant scoreboard impact in his role as a small forward within Richmond’s line-up.
He has kicked 10 goals since making his AFL debut with the Tigers this season in the Round 5 clash with Melbourne.
When you take into account the fact that Aarts was goalless in his first two games, he has scored 10 goals during the past five games. And that average of two goals per game is particularly impressive for a small forward.
Aarts is currently in equal-fifth place on the Club’s goalkicking list for the 2020 season, and he’s third in goals-per-game average.
The tenacious 25-year-old kicked two goals in another lively display up forward for Richmond in last Saturday’s 21-point loss to Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
