Richmond has had two offers for trade targets rejected by two different clubs in the last 24 hours.
Carlton yesterday rejected Richmond’s offer of pick No. 19 for Chris Yarran and Michaelangelo Rucci from the Adelaide Advertiser has today reported that Port Adelaide has rejected Richmond’s offer of pick No. 12 for ruckman Matthew Lobbe.
Port Adelaide has insisted all trade period that Lobbe is not going away, despite strong interest for the 26-year-old Victorian and despite the high number of talls now on the Power’s list.
Richmond had hoped that pick 19, which it snared from the Suns in the three way trade to get Charlie Dixon to Port Adelaide, would be enough to satisfy the Blues.
However, Carlton is reportedly not budging on Richmond’s pick 12 for Chris Yarran.
The Herald Sun has reported that Yarran is so desperate to play for Richmond next year, that he is considering sitting out the 2016 season and joining Richmond as a free agent the following year.
