Player Bio

After emerging in 2016 as a running defender, Castagna was redeployed as a small forward last season, forming a crucial partnership with Dan Butler and Daniel Rioli in attack.

His defensive pressure was vital to the way Richmond played and he didn’t miss a game.

His performances were measured by tackles and pressure acts first, rather than possessions and goals, and on that measure he was a success, earning promotion to the senior list.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2017; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Richmond) No. 29; 2017 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Richmond).
