Agree with your thought processYeah I'm fine with this, gives him the opportunity to find a role within Nicks' system, which could well happen. If he doesn't, he'll be gone by 2021 of course
Riley Knight is staying at the Crows after signing a one-year contract extension.
Crows list manager Justin Reid said the club was pleased to retain the South Clare and Woodville-West Torrens product.
“Riley was always keen to stay at Adelaide and we’re really pleased he’ll be at the club for at least another year,” Reid said.
“He is a popular member of our playing group and has shown he’s capable of playing good senior footy with his elite running capacity and ability to play a number of roles.
“Our new coach Matthew Nicks has spoken about ensuring a team-first mentality is a clear focus and Riley has demonstrated over the past six seasons he fits the mould.”
Knight made his AFL debut in Round 15, 2015.
His signature means there are no more Crows players without a contract for 2020.
If Nicks doesn’t play a tagger after seeing its success at GWS in a star studded midfield, we’ve chosen the wrong coach.He’s a born tagger and we don’t tag. Hopefully this will change and he’ll find his place in the team. Can kick a goal too.
