Phantom form guide: November edition

AFTER all those games, all that athletic testing and all of the club interviews, we are finally a week away from the NAB AFL Draft.

It is crunch time for recruiters to finalise their lists of prospects, and the same applies to us at AFL.com.au as we reveal our final Phantom Form Guide for 2017. 

This is our rating of the best 30 players in this year's pool. It is not a mock draft or necessarily an indication of where the players will get selected or where bids may come for father-son or academy players.

1 Cameron Rayner

POS: Half-forward/midfielder, Ht 187cm, Wt 88kg, DOB 21/10/1999
From Western Jets/Vic Metro
October ranking: 1

Rayner is the most exciting, game-changing prospect in the pool and for that reason is the No.1 player in the Phantom Form Guide. It was rare for Rayner to play a game this year without showing at least a couple of his tricks – whether it be an explosive burst from a stoppage,...

In a special off-season series until Wednesday, November 22, you can again savour the sweet taste of Tiger success, culminating in the sweetest of them all – the Grand Final victory over Adelaide. Today we look back to Richmond ending Hawthorn's season in Round 20...

RICHMOND took a significant step forward in their quest for a top-four finish and a double September chance after a 29-point win at the MCG on Sunday that all but ended Hawthorn's late finals surge.

The Tigers passed another test on their way to their fourth straight win, producing one of the most even performances of their season against the in-form Hawks to win 13.15 (93) to 9.10 (64) and move clear in third spot.

The win sets up a mouthwatering top-four...

From the draft to the cup: Alex Rance

Draft highlights: Rance 2007 Under 18 highlights of Richmond's pick 18 in the 2007 AFL National Draft, Alex Rance.

In a special series leading up to the 2017 AFL national draft, richmondfc.com.au examines the Tigers’ construction of their drought-breaking premiership team this year via the competition’s main talent acquisition pathway throughout the past decade. Today, we focus on Alex Rance’s recruitment.

With the priority pick it had secured at the end of the first round of the 2007 AFL national draft, after finishing last that year, Richmond’s attention turned to athletic, young Western Australian tall defender Alex Rance.

The son of former Footscray and West Coast key defender Murray Rance was coming off a fine 2007 season, where he had gained selection in the under-18 All-Australian team after excelling for WA in the national championships, and also made his senior debut for...

Richmond 2017 financial result

Richmond will report a profit of $3.06 million for the financial year ended 31 October.

The Club’s operating surplus was $4.31 million, before amortisation and depreciation.

Richmond generated total revenue of $65.2 million, an increase of $17.6 million year-on-year.

This significant growth in revenue is due to increased crowds and sponsorship, as well as sales of merchandise and memorabilia. It also includes a full year’s operation of the Club’s health and recreation business, Aligned Leisure, which expanded further in 2017 to include management of the Eltham Leisure Centre.  

The Richmond Institute of Sports Leadership (RISL) – delivered in partnership with Swinburne University – has also contributed to Richmond’s revenue growth. 

Richmond president Peggy O’Neal said the Club was in an extremely strong financial position.

“We remain debt free, have cash reserves of $9.88 million...

Today, we focus on the drafting of Dustin Martin.

Richmond recruiting manager Francis Jackson had some sleepless nights approaching the 2009 national draft.

The Tigers had pick three in the draft and Jackson was extremely keen on powerfully-built, highly-skilled, young gun Castlemaine midfielder Dustin Martin.

But Melbourne had the first two draft selections after finishing with the wooden spoon in the ’09 season and qualifying for a priority pick.

During ‘06, Edwards had represented South Australian in the under-18 national championships, made his senior debut with SANFL club North Adelaide, as a lightly-framed 17-year-old, and showed plenty of potential playing as a wingman in 10 games all-up (including three finals), before producing some eye-catching...
