Player Name: Andrew Moore
Current Club: Richmond Tigers
Potential Club: No club has publicly inquired about Moore at this stage.
The Original Price: Moore was selected with pick 9 in the 2009 National Draft by Port Adelaide, a pick they received in part for Shaun Burgoyne. Richmond signed Moore as a delisted free agent in 2015.
The Good: He’s a former first-round draft pick and is at a decent age to contribute to a club in contention or pushing into the eight in the coming years. Known for putting his head over the ball and winning contested possessions, he also tackles well and could make a good run-with player. He’s got a good size about him and doesn’t lack intensity at the contest.
The Bad: He’s a bit one-dimensional. Although he’s good in close, he lacks pace and that ability to spread from the contest. As an inside midfielder he’s not winning enough of the ball; He has only averaged over 15 disposals a game in just two of his seven seasons so far. While his disposal is fine, it’s not lethal and struggles under pressure.
What His Club Wants: Richmond need to rebuild and they need draft picks to do so. They don’t need to trade him for another 25-year-old fringe player.
What He’s Worth: As a fringe player, Richmond won’t be able to command much more than a fourth round selection. He cracked the Richmond senior side for just five games this year, four of those in the final four rounds which Richmond used to assess their list.
What We’d Pay: A late third-round selection, around pick 50-55
Possible Trade Scenarios:
- Richmond trade Moore & Reece Conca to Sydney for Toby Nankervis and pick 53
- Richmond trade Moore & pick 6 to Gold Coast for Prestia & pick 40
The Verdict: His career has stalled and with Richmond likely electing to get more games into their youngsters, he is very much on the outer at the Tigers.
Star Rating: 2.5/5
