Young forward halts contract talks with the Tigers

Promising Richmond youngster Shai Bolton has put his contract talks on hold until the end of the season, according to the Herald Sun.

Bolton shares the same manager as Dustin Martin in Ralph Carr, and while Martin also halted contract discussions, it is believed this was a decision made by Bolton and not a tactic used by his manager.

The Western Australian is happy at Richmond with the support he is receiving from the club and he has settled well into Melbourne.

A number of players from the same draft year as Bolton have already signed lengthy contract extensions.

2016 number one pick Andy McGrath has signed on with Essendon as have Hugh McCluggage, Jakes Bowes, Ben Ainsworth and Griffen Logue with their clubs.

The 2016 number 29 draft pick was not apart of Richmond’s premiership team.

But with the Tigers relying on their small forwards and Daniel Rioli still sidelined with a foot injury, Bolton is getting plenty of opportunity at AFL Level.

The rest of Richmond’s stars are contracted though Reece Conca and Nathan Broad are still waiting for discussions to begin on their futures at Punt Road.

Have heard that the Dockers think Bolton is very gettable from Richmond.

Given the small forwards on our list, a first round pick in this years draft would be a great get for us.

Drop him back to the two's, put Higgins in the side.

Maybe we should all watch the game again. If Bolton, who is younger and less experienced of the three was hopeless against Adelaide then the other two were clearly worse than hopeless. Bolton was also the only one to impact the scoreboard.

I agree that Castagna should be dropped before Bolton but he won't be....and Butler certainly won't be nor should he be.....

Good 'ole stats

Can tell any story you want

Butler was the best of the 3 by a long way. His work of the ball that wouldn't have been seen on the TV was very good. He chased, he gave 2nd & 3rd efforts

Bolton at times refused to chase...very disappointing

Fair enough I wasn’t there. But On TV I saw Castagna 3 times and he fell over three times.  :lol

Castagna was still worse...(and only one tackle is inexcusable for a bloke playing his role)......I thought all three were ordinary.....Butler might've been the "best" of the three but he stll lairised as much as Bolton and was at his fumbly, low percentage , body-faster-than-brain worst....and they all missed more tackles than they made ( and still can't understand why that isn't an official stat)
