Buddy Climbs The All-Time Records

Sydney forward Lance Franklin is back at his best and it’s helped cement him further in the all-time records.

Buddy’s three goals against North Melbourne sees him reach 746 career goals, equalling Barry Hall in 14th place.

He was stuck outside the top 20 before the start of the season in what’s been a meteoric rise.

He only needs another two goals to reach Sav Rocca in 13th, and could well overtake Richmond legend Kevin Bartlett by the end of the season, needing only 32 more goals to do so.
