Tigers to offer pick six for Prestia

Prestia officially requested a trade from the Suns this week and today, nominated the Tigers as his preferred destination.

The Herald Sun reports that Richmond will off their first pick in this year’s draft, which is pick No.6.

This would leave Richmond without a pick in the first two rounds of the draft, after the club traded away their second round 2016 selection as part of the Chris Yarran deal last year.
