“Nathan missed out on being drafted in 2013 after an injury interrupted year, and returned as a 19-year-old this year,” said Richmond Recruiting Manager Francis Jackson.

“His football improved dramatically, and he had a wonderful season culminating in him winning the best and fairest for the Bushrangers, as well as playing three games at VFL level with the Tigers.

“Nathan is an outstanding athlete who possesses elite speed and endurance.

“His work-rate in games is outstanding, and it resulted in him having some very high possession games.

“He can play inside or outside as a midfielder, and is a very strong tackler.”
