Richmond mature-aged recruit, Brad Miller, has been elevated to the senior playing list ahead of the 2011 season.
Miller, 27, was taken by the Tigers as a mature-aged rookie in the December draft last year following a 133-game career at Melbourne, where he kicked 89 goals.
He played in three of Richmond’s pre-season matches and was among the best in the win against Port Adelaide at Alice Springs, kicking two goals.
The Tigers’ General Manager of Football, Craig Cameron, said Miller would offer valuable assistance to the Club’s young forwards.
“With Ben Griffiths not quite ready to return from a shoulder injury, we believe Brad will give us another option in the forward half.
“Brad has the experience at the highest level, which will help fast-track the development of our young players, like Jayden Post and Ty Vickery.
“He has been an excellent addition to our playing group. His leadership skills are outstanding.”
Richmond passed up the opportunity to enlist a player from its rookie training squad, which consisted of Mitch Keddell, Travis Casserly and Liam Corrie.
