Baker a Tiger rookie

2017 Rookie Draft: Pick 18, Liam Baker Highlights of Richmond's pick 18 in the 2017 Rookie Draft, Liam Baker.

Richmond has used its only selection, No. 18 overall, in the 2018 Rookie Draft to recruit Subiaco forward/midfielder Liam Baker.

Here is a summary of what Richmond fans can expect from Baker...

Liam Baker

Date of birth: 27/1/1998
Height: 173cm
Weight: 67kg
Position:  Midfielder/forward
From: Subiaco (WAFL)


Liam played with West Perth in 2016 and represented WA at u18 national level. In 2017 he moved clubs to Subiaco where he played 13 league games as a midfielder/forward. He averaged 16 disposals and kicked 19 goals this season with four tackles per game. Liam is a superbly balanced player who is highly skilled on both sides of his body with elite crumbing ability. Liam has great defensive instincts as a forward, constantly harassing the opposition and intercepting loose balls. Liam ran a 10:24 3km time trial at the 2016 National Combine to rank in the top 15 of that draft class.

We are delighted to add Liam to our midfield and forward mix.
