Emerging talls, Ivan Soldo and Mabior Chol have re-committed to the Club for a further two years, to remain at Tigerland until 2021.
Both players are having their best seasons in 2019, with Soldo notching up 11 games so far this season, taking his AFL games tally to 19, and Chol playing nine AFL games.

Soldo, 23, a former junior basketballer, was recruited to the Club as a Category B Rookie in 2014. He spent his first two years developing his AFL craft at TAC Cup and VFL level, before making his AFL debut in 2017.



Grabbing his opportunity at AFL level this season, Soldo is averaging 27 hitouts, 10 disposals (at 76 per cent efficiency), three clearances and four tackles.
Athletically gifted Chol, 22, has been an exciting inclusion in season 2019, playing up forward where he is averaging a goal a game, and combining with Soldo to share the ruck duties.

Hell of a selection quandary to have.
I honestly think the Soldo/Chol combo has worked best for Richmond this season, and they should stick with it for the rest of this year, and not be swayed by past output/incumbency or future potential.
