Jacob Townsend Biography

Monday, 27 August 2018
Jacob Townsend won't be part of the Tigers' 2018 premiership defence after he undergoes surgery on a fractured fibula.

The 25-year-old injured his left ankle in a tackle during the first quarter of the Tigers' VFL win over Frankston and failed to the return to the field.

"He suffered a fractured fibula from the game that's his season over, unfortunately," Richmond's physical performance manager Peter Burge said.

"It's really disappointing, it's probably an eight-to-10-week situation from the surgery, so really now it's just about getting himself right for pre-season."

Monday, 6 November 2017
Jacob Townsend signs a new deal with Richmond to remain at the club in 2018.

"Jacob played a significant role for the team in all our finals games, none more so than the Grand Final," Tigers list manager Dan Richardson said.

"He is a strong competitor and, having found his niche up forward, we expect he will continue to build on this in 2018 and beyond."

Saturday, 30 September 2017
Following Richmond's premiership victory, Jacob Townsend spotted Richmond development coach Xavier Clarke in the jam-packed Tiger rooms on Saturday night and made a beeline for him.

They embraced, and Townsend had two words for him: "Thank you." Clarke had prophetically told him, during his frustrating run stuck in the VFL, that he could play in an AFL Grand Final.

"I wasn't sure what I'd be doing (next year) in round 21 in the AFL I was looking for jobs, looking for a carpentry job and now I'm a premiership player," Townsend said.

"The feeling's amazing. I can't really put it into words. The change of fortunes in about a month or so has been amazing."

Monday, 11 September 2017
Jacob Townsend wins the J.J. Liston Trophy as Richmond's best and fairest player in the VFL.

Townsend, 24, had to bide his time until the penultimate round of the AFL season to break into the Tigers' senior side despite outstanding form at VFL level.

But the former Giant hasn't looked back, kicking 13 goals in three AFL matches, including two in Richmond's stunning 51-point qualifying final thrashing of Geelong at the MCG.

"About three or four weeks ago, I wasn't expecting to be playing AFL footy and be kicking goals and playing in a pretty good side that's playing in a prelim," he said.

"It's always fun to be, not getting the media attention, but to be spoken about, so it's been good.

"I was just focused on playing good, consistent footy all year and if a chance came to be playing ones, then if I was playing well enough, I'd be picked."

Sunday, 27 August 2017
Hawthorn legend Dermott Brereton declares Jacob Townsend "the toughest player in the AFL" after the young forward's 6-goal effort against Fremangle.

Townsend said the Brereton had taken a shine to him during their time together at Greater Western Sydney.

"Derm has always had a few nice things to say about me, even back at my time at the Giants," Townsend said.

"I don't think that's true, though, there's a lot of tough players out there, but it's always nice to hear that from a great of the game like Derm."

Thursday, 10 March 2016
Richmond's round one preparations have been thrown into a tailspin after four key players suffered injuries in the Tigers' 48-point NAB Challenge loss to Port Adelaide.

The Tigers were left licking their wounds at Etihad Stadium as Shane Edwards, Shaun Grigg, Reece Conca and Jacob Townsend were all cut down.

Edwards suffered an apparent collarbone injury at the end of the first quarter and was sent for scans with his left arm in a sling.

Grigg then suffered a hand injury while Townsend left the ground on a stretcher after leading with his head to tackle Hamish Hartlett.

Conca suffered his fourth hamstring injury in the past 12 month.

Tuesday, 10 March 2015
Jacob Townsend will be sidelined for a month with a foot injury.

Townsend pulled up sore after Saturday's NAB Challenge victory over Gold Coast and will wear a moon boot for the next fortnight with bone bruising.

Tuesday, 2 July 2013
North Melbourne forward Lindsay Thomas will miss the next two matches after the club decides not to contest his headbutting charge against Giant Jacob Townsend.

"It was a silly thing to do and I've got to pay the consequences now and miss two games. That's the most disappointing thing," Thomas said.

"I just let the boys know how disappointed I was in myself, and I'll do everything I can to get their respect back."

Sunday, 30 June 2013
Lindsay Thomas looks set to be scrutinized by the Match Review Panel for a headbutt on Giant Jacob Townsend.
