He missed last year's flag win after injuring his shoulder in the Tigers' preliminary final win over Geelong, but played out the game despite dislocating it four times against the Cats. 

He has enjoyed a strong run of form into the finals and will be a key player for the Tigers in next week's qualifying final against Brisbane.

"The club's in a great spot, an exciting future ahead and I'm rapt to be here for another three years," Graham said on the club's website.

"Since coming in in 2017 - it was a pretty good year to come in - obviously we won the flag and I was lucky enough to be a part of that. Then I've had some ups and downs, a couple of shoulder injuries, which didn't help, but here I am now ready to go again leading into finals.

"It's just going to be an exciting time, I'm really looking forward to it, along with the next three years of my future at Richmond."

"We look forward to seeing Jack continue to play football the Richmond way and hope he is able to help contribute towards more team success."
