KINGSLEY ADDRESSES RICHMOND’S TARANTO LINKS AMONG FURTHER TRADE SPECULATION

By Seb Mottram
SEN
23 August 2022


Adam Kingsley has spoken for the first time since being installed as Greater Western Sydney’s next full-time coach.

Kingsley’s appointment was announced on Monday evening, and on Tuesday afternoon he addressed the media.

The 47-year-old remains an assistant coach at Richmond where he’ll look to win a third premiership in his time at the club, and he said his full focus still remains with the Tigers.

Richmond plays Brisbane on Thursday week to open the finals series.

However, a complicating factor centres around Giants midfielder Tim Taranto.

The 24-year-old hasn’t yet signed a new deal for the Giants and is reported to have serious interest from both Richmond or Collingwood ahead of the upcoming trade period.

Given Kingsley now has a foot in both camps, he addressed the conundrum on Tuesday.

“To be fair, I’ve just been appointed, I haven’t yet sat down with Jason McCartney (Giants football manager) and worked through what the list looks like,” he told reporters.

“He’ll be fully across what his expectations are, at some point in time we’ll have that discussion and try and work out where we both stand on it and what the plan is moving forward.”

When asked if he’ll have conversations with Giants players given at least four are linked with a move away from the club, Kingsley reaffirmed his commitment to Richmond.

“Once Jason and I have our discussions and put our heads together, we’ll formulate a plan that certainly assists the Giants but doesn’t compromise Richmond in the short term,” he replied.

“As I’ve said, that’s where my focus lies, at Richmond. But that's not to say I won’t have some discussions with some key people at the club (GWS).”

SEN Chief Reporter Sam Edmund reported on Tuesday Taranto will make a decision by the end of the week and had been “determined” to meet the club’s new coach.

Edmund also suggested Taranto was the player the Giants most wanted to keep among several on the outer.

While some could see Kingsley’s position as one with divided loyalties, that’s not how Dwayne Russell views the situation.

He believes Kingsley’s role as an assistant will have had little overlap with list management and therefore no conflict.

“As an assistant coach at the Tigers, he wouldn’t be part of the player retention and player recruitment side of the Richmond Football Club anyway,” Russell said.

“I’m not sure they would have any list management meetings that involve any assistant coaches the way I see it, so I don’t think there’s a conflict there.”

Taranto, who was taken with the second pick of the 2016 National Draft, averaged 25.5 disposals, 3.9 inside 50s and 3.8 marks per game in 2022.

Still believe Taranto goes to Collingwood.  Pies insider told me months ago he wants to go there.  Sorry to burst any bubbles.

Maybe the same horror movie over again like Lynch.

7news tonight had vision of Taranto arriving at Melbourne airport. He's here to see his manager, catch up with his family, and hold talks with Richmond and Collingwood.

Tom Browne said Richmond currently leads the race and that the Pies have limited salary cap space chasing McStay & Hill and holding onto De Goey.

The race between Collingwood and Richmond for a Giants star has heated up. As Chief Football Reporter
@TomBrowne7 reports, it’s decision time for Tim Taranto.

Well they're apparently trading out Grundy and De Goey to get McStay and someone else in haha.

Tom Browne on MMM:

Go to 9:40 min mark: https://omny.fm/shows/the-rub/tom-brownes-news-where-to-now-for-essendon-why-gee


Richmond lead the race as they are in the best position to make the best deal and Collingwood won't have that much salary cap space.

Taranto will make his decision in the next couple of weeks.

I spoke to my guy today and he said he doesn't know where he's going.  He would know. 
Think that's code that were in front at least. 
He was supremely confident a while ago.

Aug 13:

@piesource1 is he still a lock for the pies?



https://twitter.com/piesource1/status/1558315182312411136

Today (Aug 25):

De Goey deal is done.
Grundy will move - Opens window to Frampton trade.
Taranto, still confident he’ll be a Magpie. But money may talk at Tigers

https://twitter.com/piesource1/status/1562736299651371008


Is it a repeat of the Lynch trade gossip where Pies' "sources" were claiming Taranto is a lock to Collingwood just two weeks ago, only to start adding caveats now?  :whistle

"It's my understanding that Collingwood has slightly cooled on Tim Taranto... and is now putting its energy into Bobby Hill."

Taranto has to be the premier player up for trade this year. If we nab him we are in really good shape.

For the watchers of Taranto how is his disposal and what kind of midfielder is he ?.
