Nick Vlastuin returns to the Richmond side to face Brisbane on Saturday

Strong-bodied, young gun Nick Vlastuin returns to the Richmond side for Saturday afternoon’s clash with Brisbane at the MCG following a bout of concussion.

Vlastuin was concussed in the Tigers’ Round 11 loss to North Melbourne and subsequently missed the team’s Round 12 victory over Gold Coast.

He’s now fully recovered, after last weekend’s bye and is a welcome addition to Richmond’s line-up.

Speedy youngster Connor Menadue also has been recalled for another stint at senior league level, having spent the past few weeks in the VFL.
