Richmond has used its fifth selection (No. 54 overall) in the 2019 national draft to recruit Dandenong Stingrays versatile tall Bigoa Nyuon.
Here is a summary of what Richmond fans can expect to see from Nyuon on-field...
Club: Dandenong Stingrays
Bigoa played with the Dandenong Stingrays this year and played one game for Vic Country at National level. He played a mix of key position forward, back and in the ruck. He showed potential in all areas of the ground. We liked the fact Bigoa improved throughout the year and was starting to show his rare athleticism more as the year wore on.
His Round 18 game against the Murray Bushrangers where he had 14 disposals, seven marks and two goals as a ruck/forward was very impressive. Bigoa’s athleticism for a 195cm player shone through at the Victorian Draft Combine where he tested quickest for speed with a 2.85 second 20m run. His vertical leap and agility were also in the elite bracket.
Bigoa has the potential to develop into a strong and athletic key position player. We think he will grow in our program and make the most of his considerable talent.
