Richmond have rewarded AFL premiership trio Toby Nankervis, Dylan Grimes and Jack Graham with contract extensions.
All were contracted for at least the 2018 season, with Grimes, a crucial part of the Tigers back six, receiving the longest extension with a new three-year deal.
The 26-year-old would have become a free agent at the end of this year but will now remain at Punt Road until at least the end of the 2021 season.
Ruckman Nankervis became an instant fan favourite after he switched from Sydney on a three-year deal before the 2017 campaign.
He will stay with the club until the end of the 2020 season after adding another year to his current contract.
Graham, who impressed with his role on Adelaide star Rory Sloane in the Tigers’ grand final win, signed a two-year extension that ties him to the club until the end of the 2020 season.
“It’s pleasing to see that Toby, Dylan and Jack are all invested in the long-term future of the Richmond Football Club,” Tigers football boss Neil Balme said.
“Toby and Jack came to Richmond just over a year ago and seamlessly fitted into the club’s culture.
“They were prepared to work hard from day one and this ultimately showed with their success in 2017.
“Dylan has been at Richmond for eight years and has been a dedicated servant of the club over that time.
“He is a very skilful footballer and a great mentor for our younger players like Toby and Jack.”
Richmond’s pre-season will go up a notch when they take part in the AFLX round-robin at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium on February 17.
