Welcome to the Tigers Ryan.

*Another with an interesting kicking style - saying he is good one on one defender.

Yeah, they mentioned that on the radio, said he's got an unusual kicking style - I thought we covered that spot with Callum Moore last year.

We must continue our quota of 1 pick that cant kick every draft

Gets a little bit harder in the draft to find Judd types.

Had to pick up a KPD and Ryan was the best available at this pick.

Solid draft for mine that complements the trade period nicely.

::) ::) Another dud kick while the Hawks with their first pick in the 70's grab a beautiful kick of the footy. Bunch of peanuts running the show. Thought they learnt their lesson with defenders that can't kick with Astbury and Broad.

24 possys and 9 marks as a backman in the TAC granny.

I love those type of numbers on those types of occasions.

This kid is a good get at #72.

From my limited viewing of him he's competitive and smart. His footskills can be scrappy. But his hands are good. He can play.

I have long lamented Richmond's inability to complete what should be one of the simplest recruiting tasks - a #3 back.

It's good to see Clarke, in his first year at the helm, attending to that.

Noticed that also.
Hawks don't select players with iffy kicking skills.

What about Dylan Grimes ?

After watching his highlights i imagined him, Broad and Astbury in the same backline!! :yellowno :yellowno

We sure do pick them. I think James Manson from Collingwood had a better kicking action then this bloke.

A club that constantly drafts footballers lacking the basics requirements to play the game
