Sydney Stack made a solid return to Richmond’s senior side in yesterday’s loss to Collingwood at the MCG.

The talented 21-year-old, playing his first AFL game since Round 13 last year on August 22, had 13 disposals and took three marks in his role across the Tigers’ half-back line.

“That’s his challenge. He’s too good a player to not be playing AFL.

“He’s got a chance now, and we’ll see how he goes.”
