Maybe JOM is making enough from the property game that he’d be happy to come to the Tiges on match paymentsI hope Blair offers 15 for O'Meara if we can fit him in our salary cap. We need another quality mid to have a decent crack at it. We will still have plenty of picks in the draft.
The transcriptBlair on Sen this morning
The return of Tarrant made North much better.Blair doing the rounds today - SEN and now Trade Radio.
For those, like me. who might only read the Tweets (b/c the show itself is pretty bad), here's the tweets on what Blair said. I am a fan of his big time. Respectful, humble, measured.
'We've always admired Robbie's game from afar. With Dave Astbury retiring a year or two earlier than expected, we'll look to Robbie to support our back six.' - Blair Hartley re Robbie Tarrant
"We have got some guys that people haven't really heard about. We've got Samson Ryan, Noah Balta can go there. We've got some in the background that can go through that role." - Blair Hartley on if Richmond are short in the ruck/forward role
"It's one of those ones where you sit in your office and write it on the board and you think 'maybe they'll do that!'." - Blair Hartley on Richmond's offer for pick 1
'It was one of the more difficult ones I've worked through. The 5pm free agency deadline helped move things along, and Brady [Rawlings] and I got there in a really positive manner, I feel.' - Hartley on dealing with North Melbourne for Coleman-Jones, Tarrant
"It's the emergence of some of our young guys, like Collier-Dawkins, Ross and Dow and Ralphsmith and Maurice Jr, Samson Ryan." - Blair Hartley on the young players who can step up for the Tigers next year
'Whoever gets the role will have the benefit of having Trent here alongside them. We've got a great leadership programme, and normally don't announce the captain until just before the season.' - Hartley on Richmond's vacant captaincy position
Or they have no idea whos good.If we were willing to package up CCJudas and so many draft picks for North's first pick, we can't really rate the depth of this draft as being much good!
