He's 187/79.

Personally wanted a mid like Freeman but if this guy gives us an avenue to goal/mid forward then by all means let's see how he goes.

Richmond National Recruiting Manager, Matt Clarke, said Parker’s athleticism made him a target for the Tigers.

“We were looking for someone that could add some really dynamic movement to the way we play, and we like his athletic upside,” he said.

“He has been playing great football as a half-forward/wing, and on ball, so we are really excited to have him.

“He has got great leg speed (and he is) a really good runner. He has got some aerial power and knows how to kick goals as well.

“He did that for the Saints in 2019, and he has obviously been hitting the scoreboard this year as well.”

Clarke added that Parker could push for senior selection this year.

“He has got a developed body, he is a mature player, and he has experienced AFL footy before,” he explained.

“He has played a lot of league footy in the WAFL as well, so there is no reason to suggest he can’t play senior footy this year.”

Arriving at Punt Road will be a reunion of sorts for Parker, a close friend of Richmond’s mid-season draftee from 2019, Marlion Pickett.

“He is very close with Marlion Pickett. Marlion is the one who got him down to South Fremantle and took him under his wing; he has been a mentor to him and also a really good mate.

“Marlion is as excited as anybody (to have Parker at the Club).”

Parker becomes the ninth Indigenous player on Richmond’s list and the fourth from Western Australia.

I think we got the best player in this draft too. Parker wont be a 200 game player but he may help us win a flag in 2021 and that makes him a good selection.

Downside = was an absolute wanker at Saints and subsequently delisted despite clear talent.

Had a big head, very full of himself.

I hope he's grown a bit and realised that a poor attitude can cost you a career. Last chance saloon!

Can't wait until we play Brisbane and he lines up on Mitch Robinson.
