    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Is a round 13 fwd, just played his first game of the year v Hawks scoring 37 DT, 59 SC playing CHB.

    Highly rated at the tigers but has been injury plagued, mainly shoulder issues. 157K DT, 211K in SC so not ideal as a downgrade target but at least he is a round 13 bye fwd.

    Any interest ?

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Probably have to take Saad at the same basic cost this week in DT for sure. Did look like had some excellent SC potential though, long kick, good mover and reader of the play.

    Is an option that could possibly come in next week if a r12 or 13 guy is missing that had been counted on?

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Awkwardly priced for someone who won't collect a lot of possessions and has a long term history with injuries. In saying that he was impressive on the weekend and I'd be a lot more keen if he was classified as a back!

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    He's a massive kick so they might want the ball in his hands a bit more than your average lockdown tall.

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    You'd be concerned about Grimes and Jakey B, surely his JS is shaky!

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Genuine KPD that looked great to me and has always been talked up in preseasons so I think if his body can stay in one piece he is pretty safe! Would think Dea and Batchelor probably fighting for the final spot with Grimes a certainty but not going to be healthy for a while I wouldn't have thought.

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Batchelor will obviously come straight back in when he is ready, Grimes probably still another 4-5 weeks away. However after only playing 9 games in his first two seasons due to injuries surely there's a very good chance the club will want to keep him out there whilst he is fit! Didn't really put a foot wrong on the weekend.

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    I highly doubt they'd drop him. Grimes and Batchelor would be fine as 3rd and 4th talls.

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Agree @Dan , think that both those guys are ideal as a 3rd tall, part of why Grimes has been so good this year is how well he has done fighting out of his division.

    Batchelor is a great utility who can play both small or tall and has also been great.

    It is amazing though how much better all these guys look, not sure how much is the midfield and how much is genuine improvement. Richmond are looking very good though, if they can get Vickery to give them something they can be very dangerous going forward.

    Has retired effective immediately. Will take up a scholarship at University of Southern California as a punter.

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    Might see some game time for Balta or Coleman-Jones this year. I know Richmond will probably stick to just one tall (JVolt) again but they might mix it up throughout the year (and give Nank a chop out with Soldo / Balta / Coleman-Jones)

    Think Balta/Coleman-Jones are bad for looping early but might be worthwhile picking if there is a small chance they can fill in for Gawn/NN (or any other rucks people are going )

    Re: Ben Griffiths

    He's got a massive leg so would absolutely have a shot at the NFL so can't really blame him here given his issues staying healthy for AFL and that if he makes it to the NFL he'll more than makeup the lost salary of a couple of seasons.
