I don't doubt that we need a bit more run and carry from half back but crickey if you can't see that we need quality additions to our midfield rotation then you just haven't seen any Richmond games this season which is highly likely for Nic if he is listing Katie as a mid.
And our "stacked" forward line lol.

Would be nice if Monahan came good again off half back.

Another AFLW trade and sign period is almost upon us, with a number of big name players rumoured to be finding new homes. To get you up to speed, we’ve analysed each club, their list changes so far, and the kinds of roles they’ll be looking to fill.

Key dates
  • Monday May 31 - Sign and Trade period begins, 12pm AEST
  • Wednesday June 9 - Trade period ends, 2pm AEST
  • Wednesday June 16 - Re-signing period and restricted free agency period ends, 2pm AEST
  • Friday June 25 - Delisted free agency period ends, 2pm
Draft
Five clubs have been allocated priority picks for this year’s draft—Geelong, Gold Coast, Richmond, St. Kilda and West Coast. None of the clubs’ first selection may be traded, while both Geelong and Gold Coast may also sign two local, mature aged players.
The indicative first round as it stands:
  1. Gold Coast
  2. Geelong
  3. West Coast
  4. St. Kilda
  5. Richmond
  6. Gold Coast
  7. Geelong
  8. Gold Coast
  9. Geelong
  10. Greater Western Sydney
  11. Western Bulldogs
  12. Carlton
  13. North Melbourne
  14. Fremantle
  15. Melbourne
  16. Collingwood
  17. Adelaide
  18. Brisbane


Richmond Tigers
2021 list:

Christina Bernardi, Maddy Brancatisano, Katie Brennan, Hannah Burchell, Monique Conti, Harriet Cordner, Sarah D’Arcy, Sarah Dargan, Kate Dempsey, Alice Edmonds, Sabrina Frederick, Emily Harley, Sarah Hosking, Kodi Jacques, Tessa Lavey, Luka Lesosky-Hay, Akec Makur Chuot, Laura McClelland, Ellie McKenzie, Hannah McLaren, Rebecca Miller, Sophie Molan, Iilish Ross, Sarah Sansonetti, Cleo Saxon-Jones, Gabby Seymour, Tayla Stahl, Courtney Wakefield, Holly Whitford*, Alana Woodward.


Richmond need to make more of their marking forwards.  Image: Rachel Bach / By The White Line

No. of players used in 2021:
25

Current list changes:
Emily Harley, Luka Lesosky-Hay, Cleo Saxon-Jones, Holly Whitford (delisted)

Current draft picks:
5, 23, 26, 40 (3, 13, 15, 23 in Victoria’s draft pool)

What they need:
When playing well against strong teams this year, it was apparent that their delivery forward was often haphazard and panicked. For this reason, a half forward who can effectively push high and serve as a conduit to their strong marking forwards like Courtney Wakefield and Katie Brennan would be an important addition. Think: Eloise Jones, Jacqui Parry.

Pie to become Tiger in Frederick deal
Multiple sources now suggesting the Frederick-to-Collingwood move is as good as done.
Fringe Collingwood player Maddie Shevlin is bound for Richmond as part of a deal which should make Sabrina Frederick a Magpie.
Richmond forward Frederick, according to women’s football sources, is bound for the Pies after two middling seasons at Punt Road, having started her AFLW career at Brisbane.
Wing/forward Shevlin, who played three games for the Pies this year, is set to head the other way to bolster the improving Tigers.

Is she any good, hopefully better than dargan , similar fringe pie who I thought was bloody ordinary
Can’t expect too much. Good size and has been tried forward and mid but I think will be a player just looking for a fresh start at another club to reignite her career. Last chance saloon type of thing I suspect after being drafted by Dees and then Pies.

Dargan was lucky not to be delisted. She was very poor and hardly touched it. Another brilliant list management move by Sheehan!

ADELAIDE premiership star Chloe Scheer has officially requested a trade to Geelong, while Richmond key forward Sabrina Frederick is expected to become a Magpie as early as Monday.

The AFLW Sign and Trade Period will officially open at 12pm AEST on Monday, with the trade portion to close at 2pm on Wednesday, June 9.

As previously reported by womens.afl, Geelong had made an offer to the 21-year-old South Australian
Draft picks are essentially meaningless to the Crows, who have a monopoly over the state-based South Australian draft pool.

"Chloe has spoken to a couple of clubs, which we knew about. We did our best to keep her, but she came to the club yesterday (Thursday) and said she wanted to be traded to Geelong," Adelaide general manager of women's footy Phil Harper told womens.afl.

"We can't do anything about it until Sign and Trade Period starts, so when that starts, we'll see how we go.

"I've got no idea how (a potential swap for draft picks) will play out. They'll have an idea of what they want to offer, I presume. It makes it more tricky, but the player needs to be happy with where they're playing, so if that's what she wants to do, we're comfortable with that."

The Crows are confident of retaining Ebony Marinoff after some strong interest from St Kilda.

The Saints are now not expecting to be heavily involved in the Sign and Trade Period.

Frederick will be playing for her third club, having previously played for Brisbane, while versatile Pie Maddie Shevlin – who can play on either flank or the wing – will go to Richmond in return, having started her career at Melbourne.

Collingwood will wait for the Delisted Free Agency period (following the Trade Period) to sign former Blues ruck Alison Downie as a short-term cover for the retired Sharni Norder.

Downie, 37 in July, has returned to basketball this winter, signing with NBL1 side Dandenong Ranges.

All eyes will be on the out-of-contract Tayla Harris, with Adelaide, Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs the latest clubs to confirm to womens.afl they will not be pursuing the high-flying forward.
The deal to get Olivia Purcell from Geelong to Melbourne looks set to involve another player going back the other way.

The Dees currently have pick Nos. 15, 32 and 47, with the All-Australian Purcell originally drafted with No.14 in 2018.

Carlton is confident of landing Giant Jess Dal Pos, with a possible trade involving former co-captain Katie Loynes on the cards.

The Blues have opted not to offer Loynes another contract for the 2021-22 season.
The path is not as straightforward for fellow Giant Elle Bennetts, with a second player (perhaps via a third club) potentially needing to be involved to get the winger and Victorian to the Western Bulldogs.

Dogs ruck Kim Rennie wishes to be traded to North Melbourne, while Kangaroos tall Kate Gillespie-Jones is exploring her options elsewhere.

She's not the only Roo potentially on the move, with forward Sophie Abbatangelo also looking outside of Arden Street.

Daria Bannister (Geelong) and Jas Grierson (GWS) have been linked to other clubs, although North has maintained the pair will stay.

The Western Bulldogs were keen to attract a senior player in return for draft picks, but the plan was scuttled after the AFL made a decision on priority picks.

The Dogs have been pushed from pick Nos. 4 and 12 to 6 and 16, and with a comparatively shallow Victorian draft pool this year, those selections are not as valuable as they may have been in other years.

Picks 1-5 are unable to be traded by the clubs holding them in return for the priority picks given to those clubs, meaning the Bulldogs are unable to rise any higher in the draft order and hold the first tradeable selection with pick No.6.

Reigning premier Brisbane and Fremantle are set for quiet Trade Periods, while West Coast is expected to hit the draft hard and are also able to sign two "mature-age" talent from its region as part of its priority package.

Irish Docker and tall Aine Tighe – who is yet to debut after two injury-ruined seasons – will be essentially the club's new recruit for the 2021/22 season.

Clubs are keen to push up the draft order ahead of potentially compromised future drafts when new sides are introduced, and players who may be considering their future at their current club are mostly content to wait until expansion opens more doors.

There will also be close attention on the tier structure when the CBA is renegotiated for the 2022/23 season onwards, with 22 of 30 current list spots per team tied up with the lower tier three and four pay slots.

Clubs are also able to sign players to two-season deals, although have been told they have to renegotiate the second year if the CBA changes. Players will also be able to walk from their second season if approached by an expansion club.

I wonder if it's a case of Frederick wanting to go to a flag contending club or Richmond wanting to trade her because they want salary cap space?
Straight swap with Shevlin doesn't seem a fair trade for us
It's strange situation never the less

I don't disagree but we gave up our pick 16 the year we got her, surely Collingwood's 1st pick (pick 16) has to be involved with maybe our 2nd (our compo pick, No 26) going their way, not just a Maddie Shevlin swap

Sab's didn't get a lot of time on the ground this year, more a back up ruck and not effective forward, so the swap is probably even stevens considering.

Think you’re being a bit tough on old Maddie, her possessions aren’t very high, but she does play in a team with high metres gained out of defence through the middle , think Schleicher, Bonnici, Lambert so it’s more what she does when she gets it and its her meters gained that are good. This year only 3 Tigers had more average meters gained, being Brennan, Conti and McKenzie.

I think she will do fine on our flanks and wing, compared to Kate Dempsey these are this season averages.

Maddie Shevlin8.33.3193.72.32.30.2

I think she'll be a handy pick up.

Also agree on getting a pick swap our way though as well considering Sabs profile.

Historically AFLW payers move clubs with very little coming back.

The only time I’ve seen a club really dig it’s heels in was with Blues and Bri Davey in 2019 where Pies had to give up it’s first 4 picks in the draft and getting a later 4th and 5th round pick back. Sold the farm to get her but she is a super player.

With Sabrina think we would have been ok to keep her on a reduced tier contract but I think the big difference would have been marketing $$ being off the table for her.

Sarah Hosking has been front and centre this year and I think Ellie McKenzie has been really good in front of the cameras so that’s prob where some of the marketing $$ are being redirected.

Still you trade on where she’s at face value , 2y form have been bloody poor, I’d go as far as lucky to be in best players once , some would say we re lucky to get anything back . I hope she fires up , like how she goes about it

AFLW Sign and Trade Period preview
By Richmond Media




Richmond will have the opportunity to lock in some new AFLW Tigers from midday Monday, when the Sign and Trade Period officially opens.
The trade component of the Period will run until Wednesday, June 9, before a Free Agency Period commences.

As Richmond approaches the Sign and Trade Period for the third time, Head of Women's Football Kate Sheahan said the Tigers were looking to secure "a rebounding defender who's an elite ball user".

"The club's looking to bring in great athletes with a professional mindset to continue to build upon our standards and elite environment," Sheahan said.
Following the recent announcement that all 18 clubs will have an AFLW team by the end of 2023, Sheahan expects there won't be as much player movement this year.

Richmond was busy in last year's Sign and Trade Period, welcoming Sarah Hosking, Sarah D'Arcy, Sarah Dargan and Harriet Cordner to the club.
"The injection of all four girls last year was really important to building on our experience last year and I think we saw that impact during the season," Sheahan said.

"We felt the personal we brought in last year helped us add depth to our list, but you always need to evaluate where you're at so you can remain competitive.

"We've been relatively consistent with our approach. We don't often target one type of player and then another a different year, we're consistent in the type of player we want to attract to our club."

Sheahan acknowledged the process of saying goodbye to players "never gets easier".

"You have to say goodbye to people who have been terrific servants to our club and that can be incredibly difficult," Sheahan said.
"These players have made history at our football club, each and every one of them, and their contribution has been so appreciated."
The 2021 AFLW Draft order will be confirmed on Friday, June 25.

The Tigers currently hold four picks, 5, 23, 26 and 40, after it was recently announced that they would receive a priority selection in the second round.
"We're thankful for this assistance," Sheahan said.

"It allows us some flexibility in the Sign and Trade Period and it gives us some extra support to pick up the best talent in the draft."
The next AFLW season has been brought forward to December this year, to give the 10-round competition clear air and prevent an overlap with the AFL competition.

Pre-season will kick off in September, with the Grand Final to be held in mid-March, 2022.

"It's so exciting for our playing group that the season is coming around closer," Sheahan said.

"They've had a nice annual leave period but I think there's huge enthusiasm among the staff and playing group to get back to work.
"They're itching to come together as a group."

So who are the rounding defenders with elite ball use that are uncontracted? Can't think of any?

Knowing Sheehan she'll probably draft the head recruiter again that couldn't run out of sight on a dark night!
Only a person who secretly feels the opposite would knock Kate Sheahan as much as you do. :p
