Reece Conca at Richmond training in September this year

Two members of Richmond’s 2017 premiership side shape as the inspiration for injury-plagued Tigers duo Ben Griffiths and Reece Conca, as they strive to get their AFL careers back on track.

David Astbury and Dylan Grimes overcame numerous injury setbacks throughout their league football journey to play key roles across the backline in the Tigers’ triumphant season.

Astbury, who debuted at senior league level for Richmond in 2010, managed just 41 games in his first six seasons because of a variety of injury problems.

In the past two seasons, however, Astbury has played 44 of a possible 47 games, including all 25 this year. It was the first time he hasn’t missed a game in any of his eight seasons at Tigerland.

Grimes also appeared in every game with Richmond during the 2017 season for the first time in his league football...

The Tigers trailed at the first change but then controlled the next three terms to run out 11.18 (84) to 8.10 (58)...

Shane Edwards and Jack Riewoldt came to Richmond via the 2006 national draft

In a special series leading up to the 2017 AFL national draft, richmondfc.com.au examines how the Tigers constructed their drought-breaking premiership team this year via the competition’s main recruiting pathway over the past decade. We kick it off today with Tony Greenberg taking a look at the national draft history of Richmond’s 2017 premiership line-up.

 

The AFL’s national draft of 2006 has proven to be a goldmine for Richmond 11 years on.

Four of the draftees from that year were presented with premiership medallions on the last Saturday of September 2017, after playing key roles in the Tigers’ glorious Grand Final triumph over Adelaide at the MCG.

Two of the draft class of 2006, in fact, started their AFL careers with rival clubs, before subsequently landing at Tigerland.
