draftguru [ https://www.draftguru.com.au/lists/2019/richmond ] has the 'honours' next to the players. Pleasing on the eyeI would just like to say:
Grimes (AA) Astbury Vlastuin (future AA)
Houli (AA) Rance (5xAA) Stack (future AA)
Bolton (future AA?) Martin (3xAA, Brownlow, 2xNorms) Lambert (AA "squad")
Rioli (future AA?) Riewoldt (3xAA, 3xColeman) Edwards (AA)
Castagna Lynch (AA) Caddy (AA "squad")
Soldo, Cotchin (AA, Brownlow) Prestia (AA "squad" - robbed)
I/C Broad Nankervis Ross (future AA?) Pickett (future AA?)
So our best 22 contains 11 players who have been at least in the top 40 players of the AFL at one point or another, and another 2 (Stack and Vlastuin) who will surely be All-Australians in the future. In addition, I reckon we have another 4 guys (Bolton, Rioli, Ross and Pickett) who have the potential to be AA in our best 22, and (in my opinion) another 4 in our reserves, including Higgins, Balta, RCD and CCJ. As for Baker, Short, Graham; they fall in the same category as Astbury, Castagna, Soldo, Broad and Nankervis - good players who will have solid careers but we have seen enough now and I can't see any of them getting to that level (Astbury was close in 2018, leaving aside the prelim disaster, but he is now at the back end of his career).
What a position to be in coming off 2 premierships in 3 years!
example: Jack Riewoldt -> AA: 2010, 2015, 2018; Coleman: 2010, 2012, 2018; B&F: 2010, 2018; AA40: 2012; Prem: 2017
