Deledio ripe for Round 1


Richmond star, Brett Deledio, will spend a further week recovering from his hamstring injury before returning to the playing field for the Tigers’ final NAB Cup match, in the lead-up to the Round 1 clash with Carlton.

The Tigers are taking a cautious approach with Deledio, who injured his hamstring in Club's intra-club match on February 10.

“We wanted Brett to get through two weeks of solid training before a major hit-out,” said Richmond’s Elite Performance Manager, Matt Hornsby.

“At this time of the year, we can afford to be more conservative.

“The volume of work he has done in the pre-season means that he won’t be hindered when the regular season starts.

“He had completed all of the match simulation and training load before his injury, and has been one of the elite runners in the group all summer.”

Brett Deledio puts a new deal on ice

The Herald Sun today is reporting that " Brett Deledio has put contract talks on hold"

This is all kinds of bad news, Deledio is only 24, as a best and fairest winner for the Tigers it feels like he has been around forever. Getting him signed I sure was the number one goal of the off season for the Tigers management.

He is already a life member of the Tigers qaulifying for the honour when he reached 150 AFL games in Round 24 last season.

Deledio is coming into him prime but the Herald Sun is reporting he wants to play finals, this will mean we have to sit around all year just like Geelong and Melbourne had too only to lose their star, I already fear he is gone.

The only thing that will keep Brett at the Tigers is a great start to the season with finals or an act of God, I am not holding my breath.

Richmond to open the Pre-Season Comp

The Tigers will play the opening game of the season again against Carlton (I don't count that silly Sydney derby game a week before) they will also open the pre-season against the Roos.

The AFL announced the schedule for the first round of the pre-season competition today.

The Tigers, Roos and Hawthorn will play each other in the first round of triangular matches under the shortened format for Round 1 introduced last year.

North Melbourne will have to back up after playing Richmond to face the Hawks in the second game, while the Tigers get a break before playing Hawthorn in match three.

Richmond then go to Perth to play Fremantle on March 4th and then down the highway to Simonds Stadium to take on the Cats on March 10th.

Subject to results Richmond will have another game between March 16th and March 18th, I cant see Richmond making it but if we do the NAB grand Final is March 17th.
