Just signed a 9 yr deal with the wingless Bombers.
Hopefully with us. After these years his contract status concerns me.We all have expected a lot from Ross right from the time we played him in his first season at the club. The MC and coaches have moved him around in all manner of positions and roles and it is now they have given him a more settled role is he starting to show his true potential. Don't expect another Cotchin or Prestia but he will turn out a fine and dependable mid as his career progresses
Ross was 2nd in the coaches votes on the weekend with 5, which is more than Graham has polled all year (3).A very good game by Jack, but if Dusty and Jack Graham are available it is hard to see how a like, like JR holds his selection.
Really happy about this news.
TIGER CUB PRIMED FOR EXTENSION
RICHMOND is set to reward youngster Jack Ross with a fresh two-year deal.
It's understood Ross is headed towards an extension with the Tigers after a strong finish to the season, which culminated in a decisive performance against Essendon on Saturday night.
Ross had 21 disposals and 14 score involvements, along with one goal and two goal assists, to put the 21-year-old right in the frame to retain his place ahead of next Thursday's elimination final against Brisbane.
The big-bodied midfielder, who was recruited to the club with pick No.43 four years ago, was coming towards the end of his contract with Richmond but a deal to secure his future until at least 2024 is now considered imminent.

Ross was 2nd in the coaches votes on the weekend with 5, which is more than Graham has polled all year (3).
If Dusty & Graham are available I think we'll only have room for one, and Graham's form this year hasn't been good enough to be an automatic in.
