Richmond improved its 2021 and 2022 AFL Draft hands and added key defender Robbie Tarrant to its playing list during the Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period.
Who arrived: Robbie Tarrant
Who left: Mabior Chol, Callum Coleman-Jones
2021 NAB AFL Draft picks: 7, 15, 26, 28, 38, 40, 83
Future picks: The Tigers received a future second round selection as part of the complicated Robbie Tarrant-Callum Coleman-Jones deal with North Melbourne. They also let go of a future fourth in the same exchange.
AFL Media says: After the retirement of triple-premiership full-back David Astbury, the Tigers were in the market for a senior key back as part of another flag push. Robbie Tarrant fits the bill perfectly, and Richmond did very well to orchestrate a trade with Callum Coleman-Jones to avoid diluting the compensation for Mabior Chol. The Tigers lost two developing forward targets and have no obvious replacement for Jack Riewoldt on their books, with the club confident on raw duo Samson Ryan and Mate Colina.
