Delisted St Kilda forward Maverick Weller could end up with Richmond under the new rookie rule, according to Cal Twomey from afl.com.au.

Under the rule changes, formerly listed players who have been previously nominated for the draft, retired or delisted can sign with a club in the pre-season supplemental selection period (SSP) between December 1 and March 15, gaining a sort of free agency which means they can forego the stressful experience of entering the draft as a Category A rookie.

This means that Weller, delisted by the Saints, can find a new home without any hassle.

Weller played 80 games for the Saints across five seasons, primarily as a defensive forward or in a tagging role. He previously played 32 games Gold Coast, where he was also delisted at the end of the 2013 season.
