Bachar Houli will make his first Richmond appearance of the pre-season on Saturday.

Richmond has made several changes to its 27-man squad for Saturday’s final JLT Community Series match against Collingwood at Moe.

Star mature-age midfield recruit Dion Prestia returns after being rested last weekend, when the Tigers defeated Port Adelaide, and talented playmaker Shane Edwards, who missed the game because of illness, is back as well.

Experienced, quality rebounding defender Bachar Houli has been named in Richmond’s squad for the first time this pre-season, following a hamstring injury.

Young players Jayden Short, Connor Menadue, Mabior Chol, Tyson Stengle and Ivan Soldo, all yet to make an appearance during the Tigers’ JLT Community Series campaign, also have been included in the squad.

Out of the side that scored a 28-point victory over Port at Mt Gambier are Ben Lennon, Ivan Maric, Jacob Townsend, Kane Lambert, Oleg Markov, Corey Ellis and Kamdyn McIntosh.
