With pick 18 in the 2020 Rookie Draft, North Melbourne has selected Connor Menadue.

Menadue played 39 AFL games for Richmond before being delisted at the end of 2019, and joins the club from Werribee.

A wingman/midfielder with pace and a booming kick, Menadue was a key part of Richmond's 2019 VFL premiership.

“We have been in regular contact with Connor throughout 2020 in a view to listing him at some stage,” National Recruiting Manager, Mark Finnigan said.

“He was the fifth piece of our plan to bring in AFL experience on the back of bringing in Corr, Stephenson, Young and Atu. 

“His run and carry was really appealing to us, as was his positional versatility.

“Given how much youth has come into the club, Connor will bring along some great experience to our group.”
