Dal Santo names the AFL's best forward line


St Kilda champion Nick Dal Santo says Richmond currently possess the best forward line in the competition.

The Tigers added Gold Coast superstar Tom Lynch to their ranks during the trade period to what was an already potent forward line set-up.

Dal Santo believes Damien Hardwick’s side have all bases covered in attack.

“They might have had arguably the greatest forward line anyway,” Dal Santo told SEN Breakfast.

“The way they get that forward line to operate – you go Tom Lynch, Jack Riewoldt, Josh Caddy, Jack Higgins, Daniel Rioli and Kane Lambert.

“I think that is the best forward line structure in the competition - it’s got talls, it’s got Caddy as that roaming third tall, it’s got forward line pressure and it’s got goal kickers.

“That is the best forward line in the comp right now.”

Richmond were the second highest scoring team during the home-and-away season in 2018 and had the highest percentage out of all the 18 clubs.
