Lets not get too carried away. He has been drafted by Francis Jackson coached by softwick and he's hardly a dustin martin/deledio. Couple weeks ago delusional supporters were excited at marics return. Blind Freddie could see he's been bloody ordinary for few years now.

Or you know, you could just be happy for him. :thumbsdown:
I like the endeavour of this kid.

But he is a third rounder, with a good attitude coming off an ACL.

Hope he goes well, but think he might be a little ways away.
Yep agreed. Start small. Get on the park, enjoy yourself but bust your guts out, whatever happens from there happens.

If he gets a clear run at it, he will make it. Kid has what it takes. Just a cruel injury at a horrible time. Have faith with this lad. He will surprise a lot on this board.
Agreed. Was my favourite player in the 2013 draft and wanted us to take him then. Was ecstatic to pick him up in 2014.

Kid has everything. Pace, endurance, agility, hard at it, runs and carries, can win his own ball. Disposal is inconsistent, but he will be an absolute gem if he can stay injury free.

I'm not sure why, but he reminds me of Matthew Knights.

Completely forgot about him. Could surprise a few. Was obviously impressing before he went down.

Like the kid even though I've barely seen much of him. Has already had his share of setbacks in his young career (missing out on being drafted in 2013 through injury IIRC and then of course doing his knee on debut).

His goal when he returned to the seniors was a memorable moment from a pretty dire 2016 season.

Hopefully his exposure to adversity and his determination to overcome those setbacks helps drive him to a big 2017 and beyond. Would love to see him maybe play off a flank somewhere to allow a Corey Ellis or Vlaustin type to push up the ground.

Could be the blond hair also.
That being said, his arse is no where near the size of knighters!

Richmond fear youngster Nathan Drummond has again torn his ACL

Richmond are bracing for bad news regarding Nathan Drummond with the Tigers suspecting the 22-year-old will need another knee reconstruction.

While the club won't confirm the news until Drummond has scans, it is feared the third-year utility faces another lengthy stint on the sidelines after he left the ground in tears, helped by trainers, in the first half of Richmond's VFL clash with Sandringham at Trevor Barker Beach Oval on Saturday.

He went straight into the club's rooms, where he was visited by senior teammates watching the game, as well as senior coach Damien Hardwick.

The knee is not the same one he hurt almost two years ago to the day in his first AFL game against Melbourne on Anzac Day eve 2015.

After more than a year out of the game, Drummond bounced back in 2016, returning via the VFL before playing four AFL games late in the season.

The Victorian was drafted by the Tigers with pick 52 in the 2014 draft, and is a relation to former Carlton and Fitzroy footballer and South Australian governor Sir Doug Nicholls, after whom the AFL's Indigenous round is named.

Drummond signed a one-year contract extension with the Tigers last year, meaning his current deal expires at the end of this season.
