Richmond recruit Aaron Edwards will make his debut in Tiger colours on Monday night against West Coast at Patersons Stadium.

The former West Coast and North Melbourne forward has been named in Richmond’s final 22-man team, along with defender Matt Dea.

The pair replaced the omitted Luke McGuane and Robin Nahas.

Edwards will become the seventh new face in Yellow and Black colours this season, following fellow recruits Ricky Petterd, Chris Knights, Sam Lonergan, Orren Stephenson, Troy Chaplin and youngster Nick Vlastuin.

He has been rewarded for his outstanding form at VFL level with Coburg, where has kicked 20 goals in five appearances.

David Astbury, Matt Arnot and Brad Helbig were named as the emergencies.
