Tigers show interest in Carlton ruckman

Richmond is interested in recruiting Carlton forward/ruckman Shaun Hampson, who will meet the Tigers soon.

Richmond has confirmed an interest in Hampson, whom the Tigers can see fitting a specific need for a forward who can also play in the ruck.

Greater Western Sydney also has some interest in Hampson, who was unable to cement a regular position in Carlton's best 22 this year under Mick Malthouse, playing only six games, partly because of injury problems, but also because he had slipped to No.3 behind Matthew Kreuzer and Robbie Warnock among the Blues' big men.

The Tigers said on Tuesday evening that they would complete their ''due diligence'' on Hampson in the coming days as the AFL trade period begins. They want to do a medical on the 201-centimetre Hampson, who has had knee problems the past two seasons. GWS and Richmond have informed the Blues of their interest in Hampson.

Richmond has a tight salary cap, having just re-signed midfielder Dustin Martin.

Hampson is contracted for 2014 and while the Blues are willing to let him go, there would need to be what they consider fair compensation.

A much better option than Stephenson. Still young and has a good leap and mark with good pace

Funny I thought we already had one of those types in Vickery

Could be a pretty shrewd pick up by the tigers, clearly hasn't peaked yet in the right environment with some quality coaching and support , you just never know what he s capable of :shh

I'd take Hampson as a back up, provided he comes cheaply. I think he has a fair bit of development in him.

If he is cheap we at least have a back-up ruckman.

He's contracted and on reasonable coin for a 2nd stringer

Would want Carlton to absorb some of the remaining $$$ on his contract
