"His nickname with us was 'weapon', because of all of those physical attributes. He rocked up and was doing 6 minute 2km runs on grass, he was flying around. He is so strong...he was off our weights program inside a year doing his own specialised one."

"The only flaw in his game is his disposal, my argument to that most of the time is when you've got three blokes hanging off you, it's hard to kick the ball well all the time. We're not all Dustin Martin."

- Phil Davis on Taranto

I think what gets lost in all this is just how dire our midfield stocks was with ball winning mids.
We still dont have any of his type in development and we really need to be planning now for when he and Hopper are not there.

Me i would be targeting kids around 188/85 who know how to get their hands on the ball and have good break away pace. They dont need to be elite by foot but need to be proficient. They can have a few rough edges that we sand back and improve.

Look at us last year imo a bit slow in the midfielld and even with Taranto we were 16th for disposals 11th for contested possesions and 13th for clearances how bad would this have been without Taranto.

It has been tough getting kids in while on top but if im going to be critical i think we have been very poor when it comes to drafting the right types and succession planning.

People the media everywhere saying we sold the farm to get Taranto and Hopper but the truth is list management and succession planning has been that poor that we had no choice. Where we continue to get it wrong having got those two is we refuse to draft similar type kids.

"It could be a line in the sand moment for clubs,” Cornes said.

“If Essendon think he's (worth) five (years). They haven't pushed to six, whereas clubs like Richmond have gone seven (years) for (Tim) Taranto and (Jacob) Hopper, he (Parish) would be in the same category.

"It's a responsible deal from Essendon, they may have shaped what the rest of the competition do, because the deals for some of these players like Taranto and Hooper became out of control."

Zach Merrett was the best kick in the AFL on his dominant side based on kick rating (+9.2%). Tim Taranto was the worst (-9.3%).   

Sample size top-50 kicks on the dominant side.

Lol

Tarrant kicked 19 goals this year.

Merrett 8.

Think I know who I'd rather.

'Stability will be good': Richmond star Tim Taranto keen to start afresh with Adam Yze

Anna Pavlou

25 February 2024


Richmond midfielder Tim Taranto has declared he finally feels settled in the yellow and black, after a tumultuous 2023 season.

The Tigers parted ways with three-time premiership coach Damien Hardwick in May, in what was Taranto's first season for Richmond.

Before that, the 26-year-old endured his former GWS Giants coach Leon Cameron's abrupt departure from the club in May 2022

It was Hardwick's exit that shook up the former powerhouse club, with their beloved coach, who brought them their first premiership in 30 years, heading up north just months after citing he was "burnt out".

Hardwick is now the senior coach of the Gold Coast Suns, confident he can take their to a maiden finals appearance this season.

Despite the unfortunate exit just as Taranto kicked off his career with Richmond, he still managed to take home their best and fairest after a stand out inaugural season in the yellow and black.

Now, he's finally feeling like he's at home, thanks to some stability at the top, with Melbourne champion Adam Yze appointed coached in September.

"Knock on wood, Yze can keep his job this year," Taranto joked at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday.

"A bit of stability will be good. I feel like everyone has settled in now."

Taranto did not feature in the Tiger's win over Melbourne in their practice match, but is raring to go as they face the reigning premiers next week.

"Got managed last week. I probably could have played, but we've got a game on Tuesday, which is against the Pies for the charity shield match," Taranto said.

Richmond’s reigning club champion Tim Taranto says some of what the Tigers dished up on Sunday was “unacceptable” but believes their season remains alive despite slumping to 0-3.

“There were good patches in that game, then some really bad ones – and that doesn’t get you wins, unfortunately,” Taranto told The Age.

“That third quarter [conceding seven goals to four] and the start of the fourth was pretty poor from us, especially the mids. I reckon we got beaten in the contest at centre bounce [but] we’ve got a young team in, so it was good to get some game time into those boys. We’re still just searching for those four [consistent] quarters.”

Taranto praised forward Seth Campbell (third game) and defender Tom Brown (second), as well as more seasoned young players Ben Miller and Jack Ross, and said Richmond were most focused on improving.

Unbeaten Sydney and another 2023 finalist, St Kilda, fresh from defeating last year’s premiers Collingwood, await the Tigers in the next fortnight.

“Footy never does get easier, but you never know [what can happen],” Taranto said.

“Like, 0-3, I know that stings a bit, but we don’t really have an expectation. It’s just trying to get better each week – that’s our motto – and I mean, it’d be great if we were 3-0, but we’re not, so we’ll just keep trying to get better.

“The season will be what the season is. Who knows what it is? Nothing’s ruled out yet; it’s f---ing three games in. There’s plenty of the season to go.”

Taranto made it clear they were “not just going to roll over” and would continue to do everything possible to win games despite critics making them a popular choice to finish in the bottom four.

His kicking is pretty bad but, im  happy with what we gave up for him.

Similar picks to old mate Thomson Dow and look how that ihas turned out.

He must be thinking what the stuff have I done leaving the giants.

He was brilliant and has been since moving over from the Giants. Very pleased he is a Tiger.
