Short's post-match interview on K-Rock:

AUDIO link: http://www.krockfootball.com.au/audio/interviews-2018/round-sixteen-richmond-vs-adelaide-crows-match-interviews/

-------------------------------------------------

Jayden Short has opened up on the transformation he’s undergone from small forward to a slick, quick defender, who generates significant drive for Richmond through his hard running and booming kicking.

Short was recruited by the Tigers as a rookie selection (No. 11 overall) in late 2015.

He was elevated to the Club’s senior playing list on the eve of the 2016 season as a replacement for injured teammate Reece Conca.

His AFL debut came against Collingwood at the MCG in Round 2 and he kicked three goals in a promising display as a small forward.

By the end of that season, however, Short was plying his trade on-field as a small defender. And now, nearly two years on, he’s developed into one of the best small defenders in the competition.

“I got a bit lucky in my first game. I kicked three goals and then played the next week and didn’t get a kick. So they had to put me down the backline . . . get me out of the forward line because I wasn’t doing too much down there,” Short told K-Rock following another top-class display for Richmond in last Friday night’s victory over Adelaide at the MCG.

“I’ve loved going down back. I think I can make the most of my offensive ability and my kicking skills down there.”

Short lost his place in Richmond’s senior side late last season after playing 16 games and was a spectator on Grand Final day when the Tigers broke their 37-year premiership drought.

He’s used that disappointment as added incentive this season to take his game up to the next level.

“I obviously wanted to play in the AFL team, so I set myself a high standard to get in the team and hold my spot,” he said.

“I want to do the best I can and help the team as much as I can, and get around the boys as much as I can. I just love playing with the boys, they make my job easy out there.

“I’ve got some great players around me . . . they look after me. Just as I try to help them with my offense, they help me out with their defence, which is unbelievable . . .”

Short’s ability to roost the ball with such precision has become a real weapon for the Tigers.

“It’s something I’ve always prided my game on, it’s something I’m always working on as well.

“You can probably see that I don’t handball too much, which is probably something I do need to work on.

“But I do enjoy getting the ball on my boot and I just try and get it as much as I can . . . just try and do the best I can for the boys and try and make something happen.”

Boomer Harvey tiring to drive Shorty's price up on Future Stars today, claiming 17 clubs would be lining up to pay $500k per year. I'm calling $375k - $400k for 2 years as about correct weight factoring in his current improvement trajectory.

I actually agree with Boomer. He’s worth what the market is willing to pay. I reckon there would be many clubs that would pay that for a skilful defender thats not afraid to take the game on, is one of the best players for metres gained and can bomb a long goal from outside 50.
Many clubs would be making offers Im sure.
The club that keeps giving.

Short is a must keep, paying more money to these guys, (and btw how much would Lambert get?), Broad, Grimes, Higgins, Castagna, means a big fish like Lynch will probably be off the table, which IMHO, is good.
Lucky we have Balmey to sort it all out.

Info came directly from one of his best mates outside the club, so I think it's true. Mind you match payments maybe ~$6K and so if you play 22 senior games that would be around $250K per year. Still bargain basement.

The Tigers need to keep Jayden Short

Short played 16 games last year but didn’t feature in Richmond’s breakthrough premiership side. However should the Tigers make it back to the Grand Final, and Friday's win over Adelaide showed again why that seems a very likely case, then Short should be there. The Tiger brings genuine run and carry to their line-up and is having an excellent season. He picked up 25 disposals and kicked a goal against the Crows. Short is among a big group of Tigers out of contract this season and the parties are some way apart in terms of what his value should be at the club. But Richmond should make his signature a priority. - Callum Twomey

I think we need to relax.

Short will not leave. He is loyal and we are not silly.

I think that if we offer him a fair deal, he will jump at it. I have no doubt he will stay with us for less than what he could earn elsewhere, but we just can't low ball him.

Agree, the same goes for lambert. I think guys like grigg and houli will have to take paycuts too.

The motivating factor behind Jayden Short's Richmond resurgence

By Alex Zaia
SEN
9 July 2018


Richmond defender Jayden Short says he’s used missing out on last year’s premiership as a motivating factor to ensure he is part of the Tigers’ tilt at this season’s flag.

Short has successfully locked down a regular spot in Damien Hardwick’s best 22 in 2018, playing all 15 games so far and impressing with his run and ball use off half-back, averaging almost 20 disposals per match.

While enjoying being around the club during their drought-breaking season, the 22-year-old is determined to be involved in September action this time around, with the reigning premiers raging favourites to go back-to-back for the first time since 1974.

“I saw how much fun the boys had and I sort of didn’t want to put myself in a position where I was going to miss out like that again,” Short told SEN’s Crunch Time.

“I used that was a bit of motivation to keep myself in the team and play the best footy that I can.

“It was still a good place to be; it was still exciting and I was still around the club with all the boys, I just wasn’t in the team.

“I did the most I could to try and get myself back in there, but it didn’t happen.

“It was a great place to be. It was obviously a successful year so I still had fun while I was there."

Short is out of contract at the end of the season, but remained tight-lipped regarding his future.

“I’m trying to play the best I can and I’ll let my manager deal with that. I’m just enjoying my footy and being in the team,” he said.

“I’m just trying to hold my spot and do the most I can for the team.”

Had this guy pegged as Houli's replacement 2-3 years ago.

Who would have known he'd been this good though?

Genuinely elite foot skills. In AA form in my eyes...
