He was marginally off the pace but gee you can really tell the difference between him (older and previously AFL listed) and our other junior players. He 100% has the attributes. And it sounds from Dimma like we are planning to keep him in 2022 (something about we debut'd him earlier than we wanted while he was still learning our structures etc).

Anyway I think he looks the goods and is immediately better than several other blokes we've seen this year.

Dimma's full comments on Parker:

的 thought he was really good, Hardwick said.

滴e痴 quite dynamic, Matty.

典he things he does in and around the contest are really strong.

滴e wins the ball, he uses it really well.

展e probably played him a little bit earlier than we thought because there痴 some structure and system stuff he痴 still learning.

釘ut he was pretty dynamic through the middle of the ground and then he went forward and provided a good conduit at various stages as well.

鉄o, it was a really promising debut, and we池e looking forward to him to continue with that next week versus Geelong, hopefully.

Was good and will get better once he learns out game style.
Too many long blind kicks ATM.

Has a real crack but disposal is horrible i can now see why StKilda let him go.He and Castagna in the forward half is laughable.

At the end of the day we have him am happy for them to give him a 1 year deal and see if a few of the chinks can be ironed out.

Certainly cracks in but "enigmatic" and not in a good way.... :shh

Matthew Parker over his four senior appearances averages 14.2 disposals, 3.2 inside-50s, 4.8 score involvements, 5.8 tackles and 310.2 metres gained per match and has added some important energy to the Richmond side.

Parker produced another robust performance against North Melbourne at the MCG last Saturday, finishing with 14 disposals, three inside-50s, seven score involvements, four tackles and 295 metres gained.

In the first half of that contest, when the Tigers were really struggling, Parker was one of their few players who could have held his head high.
