August 22, 2015 - Tyrone Vickery kicks six goals in win over Collingwood
"Richmond has kept its top-four hopes alive with a 91-point thrashing of Collingwood at the MCG on Saturday that was highlighted by a six-goal haul from spearhead Tyrone Vickery. The Tigers flew out of the gates, kicking the game's opening four goals in a sign they were switched-on for the must-win clash. The Magpies hit back with the next three goals, but Richmond then broke their will with seven straight goals from the 26-minute mark of the first term to the opening minute of the third quarter to set up a 23.9 (147) to 7.14 (56) win." - AFL

June 26, 2015 - Jack Riewoldt kicks six goals in win over Sydney
"The Tigers trailed by 32 points at half-time, but they responded - led by a six-goal haul to Jack Riewoldt - to beat Sydney 14.11 (95) to 11.11 (77). The game was full of incidents for the Match Review Panel, with Sydney forwards Lance Franklin and Kurt Tippett both reported in the first half for elbowing opponents to the head. Richmond emphasised its potential with a rare win at the SCG, following up on a win over Fremantle at Subiaco Oval three weeks ago." - ABC

April 2, 2015 - Jack Riewoldt kicks four goals in season opener
"Richmond has overcome a poor start to outclass Carlton by 27 points in a scrappy contest in Thursday's season-opening clash at the MCG. The Tigers trailed the Blues by 23 points at the five-minute mark of the second term and could have been further behind if Carlton – then on 6.7 – had kicked more accurately. But Richmond kicked the next seven goals to turn the game on its head, holding Carlton goalless from the five-minute mark of the second quarter until the five-minute mark of the final quarter.... Jack Riewoldt worked his way into the game after being well held by Michael Jamison early, clearly emerging with the points after kicking a game-high four goals and taking eight marks. Riewoldt was well supported in attack by Ben Griffiths and Sam Lloyd (both three goals), while Brandon Ellis (26 possessions) and Bachar Houli (21) were also among Richmond's best players." - AFL

February 8, 2015 - triple tall possibilities
"Damien Hardwick hasn't ruled out playing all three of Richmond's tall forwards together in 2015, as he uses the summer to work out his best attacking combination. With two-time Coleman medallist Jack Riewoldt the obvious focal point, the Tigers trialled different set-ups around him in 2014, using Ben Griffiths and Ty Vickery. The three played together on seven occasions - mainly in the absence of Ivan Maric until round 11 - with mixed results. Hardwick said there hadn't been a firm decision made against trying the three together again, and the Tigers would continue to work on devising the best structure to increase scoring power.... 'There's certainly competition with spots up for grabs … and the reality is we've got to make sure we pick the best forward line that's going to kick goals'." - Tigers
