What the Richmond recruiters say about Clarke...

Judson is an outside midfielder/dangerous forward from the Dandenong Stingrays with a powerful running capacity.

In 2021, he bounced back from an ACL injury-affected 2020, averaging 18 disposals and four inside-50s at NAB League level this season.

However, it was his dominant 22-disposal, five-goal performance for Vic Country in the first Country/Metro trial where Judson’s running power, excellent lateral movement and finishing skills were on full display, and he consequentially rocketed up draft boards around the country.

Judson can run all day and he loves to keep the game moving, creating scoring opportunities with his long-raking left foot.

Richmond forwards will certainly take delight in seeing Judson with ball in hand up the ground, knowing they will get excellent service inside-50, and Richmond fans can do the same, knowing that he’ll generate plenty of excitement on the expanses of the MCG.
