AFL is a pressured-filled game. Whether it’s coaches, players or board members, there is always going to be more pressure on some than others.
We take a look at the top five players who are feeling the heat heading into the 2019 season.
5. Jacob Townsend (Richmond)
The premiership-forward struggled to maintain a spot in the Tigers’ lineup in 2018, playing just ten games for the minor premiers. The ex-Giant shopped himself around at the end of last year but had no luck, signing on with the Tigers rookie list for 2019. Townsend will need to have a big year to remain at Punt Road.
