Richmond premiership players Toby Nankervis, Dylan Grimes and Jack Graham will all stick around at the club, putting pen to paper on new deals.

Nankervis, who initially signed a three-year deal to join the Tigers, has extended his initial contract by a year, signing until 2020.

Grimes has signed a three-year extension, taking him until 2021, while Graham has extended by two years, until 2020.

Richmond's general manager of football Neil Balme praised the trio for sticking on.

“It’s pleasing to see that Toby, Dylan and Jack are all invested in the long-term future of the Richmond Football Club,” he told the club's website.

“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.

“Toby, Dylan and Jack are firmly focused on getting the most out of this pre-season and taking their football to another level in 2018.

“These signings are a credit to Blair Hartley and the Club’s recruiting and list management staff, who work tirelessly behind the scenes.”
