Matthew Richardson questions public nature of North Melbourne’s recruiting

Matthew Richardson says he can’t understand why North Melbourne’s big name recruiting targets keep being leaked publicly.

Reports surfaced on Wednesday the Roos had offered Collingwood’s Jordan De Goey $5 million over five years.

North hasn’t hidden from the fact it’s chasing a big name, offering big deals to Dustin Martin and Josh Kelly last year.

Richo finds it interesting.

“Why do these North Melbourne deals keep being played out in public? I don’t understand it,” he said on Sportsday.

“Martin and Kelly last year … now this … I just don’t get it.”

Sportsday newsbreaker Tom Morris believes the Roos may be hoping for a “flow on effect”.
