Spirited Richmond small forward Jake Aarts produced the best performance of his 24-game senior career with the Tigers in last Friday night’s loss to Brisbane at the Gabba.

Aarts finished the match with an AFL career-high 17 disposals, an AFL career-high eight marks, an equal AFL career-high four inside-50s, an AFL career-high 286 metres, two goals and five score involvements.

The 26-year-old has kicked at least one goal in each of Richmond’s 10 games so far this season, for an overall tally of 15, which places him third on the Club’s goalkicking list behind Jack Riewoldt (25 goals) and Tom Lynch (18 goals).

He is averaging more than one goal per match across his 24-game AFL career (29 goals in total).
