Tiger cub Gra­ham in bolter break­out

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

WHEN the heat was on, the youngest player on the ground stood up mag­nif­i­cently.

Play­ing just his fifth AFL game at 19, Rich­mond mid­fielder Jack Gra­ham had a day he’ll never for­get, boot­ing three goals as the Tigers downed Ade­laide.

No goal was more im­por­tant in the Tigers’ vic­tory than Gra­ham’s first late in the sec­ond quar­ter. Af­ter a fiercely con­tested open­ing in which the Crows started strong­est, Gra­ham’s bril­liant goal put the Tigers ahead for the first time — a po­si­tion they would re­tain for the rest of the game.
