Jacob Townsend

WEIGHT: 89kg
JNR CLUB: Leeton Whitton Crows


Identified as the tough, inside midfielder Richmond required, Townsend crossed to the Tigers in the 2015 trade period.

With a history as a ferocious tackler and courageous ball-winner, he shapes as a readymade recruit for the on-ball division.

Restricted by a foot injury for the first half of last year, his only AFL game was in round 23 against Melbourne, showcasing the hardness he was recruited for.
