Reece Conca played across half-back in a strong showing in Richmond’s intra-club match on Friday morning.
Injuries and form limited Conca to just three senior matches in 2015, a far cry from the 71 he played across his first four seasons at the club. Predominately a midfielder, the move across half-back could signal a change to Conca’s style of play and help him find his way back into Richmond’s best 22. He must clean up his kicking should he play this role, with his kicking efficiency numbers down on what most rebounding defenders produce. His positioning may have been affected by Chris Yarran not playing.
