Griffiths has missed two of the last three games, but showed impressive signs in his first four matches of the season, where he averaged 13 disposals and 6.5 marks, and kicked seven goals.

The Tigers omitted youngsters Liam McBean and Todd Elton, who made their first appearances for the season last week against Collingwood.
