31 disposals, 10 marks v. Dockers

May 9, 2021
Rich netted 31 disposals, 10 marks, three tackles and a single behind and clearance each Sunday as Brisbane defeated Fremantle 95-71 at Gabba.
ANALYSIS
A career-high matching 28 kicks and three disposals left Rich falling one disposal short of a personal-best 32 on Sunday, while while his 10 marks left him tied with teammate Daniel Rich as the game's No. 2 in that respective category. That the 30-year old also paced all players in meters gained (660) only further enhanced what ended up being his best fantasy showing of 2021 and leaves the forward now averaging 101.4 points an appearance, sixth-best amongst all AFL defenders.

Signs one-year extension
DBrisbane Lions
April 13, 2021
Rich signed a one-year extension Tuesday, AFL Ratings reports.
ANALYSIS
Rich's contract extension will bring him back for his 14th season in 2022. He's performed well this season, recording 105 disposals, 21 marks and one goal over four matches.
Team-best 25 disposals in loss
DBrisbane Lions
March 31, 2021
Rich grouped 25 disposals, three marks, two tackles and a clearance Friday as Brisbane fell to Geelong 81-80 at GMHBA Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Rich topped all Lions in disposals, tied teammate Dayne Zorko with a team-high 20 kicks and collected his ninth, tenth and eleventh mark in two showings on Friday. Such figures helped the 30 year-old to post his second 90+ fantasy point total in as many weeks and currently finds him ranked third-best in the AFL in total kicks (41).
Huge in win
DBrisbane Lions
October 2, 2020
Rich scored one goal to go with 20 disposals (18 kicks, two handballs) and made nine marks during Friday's 69-54 win over Richmond.
ANALYSIS
Rich had an exceptional finish to the season and this contest was no exception as he played a big role in securing a first victory in this year's finals. He hasn't logged more than 23 disposals over his last four matches, but has still topped 20 in each of those Rounds and contributed with excellent tallies of marks. He'll now have a break in anticipation of the next match of the finals.
Plays big role in win
DBrisbane Lions
September 13, 2020
Rich collects 23 disposals (19 kicks, four handballs) and made 10 marks during Sunday's 73-41 win over Sydney.
ANALYSIS
Rich had his best game of the season with season-highs in disposals and marks. Previously, Rich had touched 20 disposals just once, so it's hard to expect another performance like this occurring immediately after his breakout game. However, this could also suggest an increase in form ahead of the finals.
Suspension served
DBrisbane Lions
August 19, 2020
Rich has served his suspension and will be available for selection for Sunday's match versus St. Kilda, Michael Whiting of the AFL's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Rich's one-match ban came on the heels of a dangerous tackle during the team's previous clash against Western. After sitting out versus North Melbourne, he will rejoin the battle as two of the ladder's top five teams are set to go at it. While Rich isn't exactly a fantasy juggernaut, he does have a few strong outputs and does enough to warrant consideration on a weekly basis.
