Given there is a lot of chat about how our list management should pan out at seasons end I thought it would be helpful to have a thread dedicated to Official List Management News.

I've created a sheet that shows the contract status of every player, including whether they are non free agent, restricted free agent or unrestricted free agents when they next come out of contract.

As we start to re-sign players for 2025 and beyond this thread will be updated so that it's easy to keep track of who has been signed and yet to re-sign. I will also endeavor to include news regarding contact talk, that is reported by credible sources like Herald Sun/The Age/AFL/SEN/Code Sports/TV Shows. Yes I'm well aware not many of them are considered credible, but you get what I mean.

'Looking forward to being a part of the future' - Mansell​

Rhyan Mansell speaks with Richmond Media following the news he has signed a two year contract extension.
The energetic forward had a long road into the AFL, missing out in two years of National and Rookie Drafts before earning his chance via the Supplementary Selection Period.

Mansell who won four consecutive state league premierships with North Launceston (three) and Woodville-West Torrens (once-SANFL), was used primarily as a defender when he first arrived at the Club before settling into a forward role.


The 23-year-old had an outstanding pre-season this year before an ankle injury meant he missed Opening Round.

The Tasmanian has averaged 10.7 disposals and three tackles per game in 2024, booting six goals. He is the #1 player at Richmond for Goal Assists.

Mansell said he was “rapt” to put pen to paper.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to play another two years at Richmond and looking forward to having the chance to build on what I’ve been able to do the past four years,” he added.

“It is exciting to be a part of the future for Richmond.”


Richmond General Manager, Football Talent Blair Hartley said Mansell thoroughly deserved the contract extension.

“Rhyan has worked hard across the past four years to continually improve his game and establish himself in the team,” he said.

“His teammates love playing with him, and he puts in a lot of time behind the scenes. We look forward to him continuing this across the next couple of years.”

Tall defender Ben Miller has committed his future to Richmond, putting pen to paper on a two-year extension with the Club.

Miller, 24, is having his most consistent season at AFL level- finding form as a key cog in Richmond's back line.

The West Australian has played 10 consecutive games since breaking into the lineup in Round 3, taking his career tally to 35.

Miller was drafted to the Club with pick No. 63 overall at the 2017 AFL Draft, learning his craft as a key defender from Alex Rance, David Astbury, and Dylan Grimes before breaking through for a debut in the final round of his fourth season.

The versatile 198cm tall played 11 games in 2022, including the Elimination Final, before adding a career-high 13 last year, which he is on the cusp of surpassing in 2024.

Miller ranks #1 at Richmond for One Percenters, #3 for Marks, #4 for Rebound 50s, and #5 for Intercepts, all while playing on the opposition's best power forwards.

Richmond General Manager, Football Talent Blair Hartley said Miller was being rewarded on field for his continual hard work over the past seven years.

"Ben is a great teammate and a player that has put in a mountain of work to give himself the best chance to succeed," Hartley said.

"He has taken his game to a new level this season and thoroughly deserves this contract extension.

"We look forward to having Ben and his family as part of the Club for another two years and beyond."

The contract extension will take the versatile Miller into an eighth and ninth season at Richmond.

Miller has been used mainly as a key defender but also as a ruck/forward across his time at the Club.
