Elton recalled

Team selection: Round 3 View the team for Richmond's Round 3 match against West Coast.

Richmond has turned to Todd Elton as a replacement for concussed tall forward Ben Griffiths in this Saturday afternoon’s Round 3 clash with West Coast at the MCG.

It will be just the fifth senior appearance for Elton, who made his AFL debut with the Tigers back in 2012.

Elton, 23, 197cm and 101kg, has earned his promotion to senior ranks after displaying solid form up forward for the Richmond VFL team in recent practice matches.

The Tigers have made one other change to the team that defeated Collingwood by 19 points in Round 2, with hard-running utility Kamdyn McIntosh returning following one game back at VFL level.

McIntosh takes the place of Shane Edwards, who has been sidelined with a hip injury.

Richmond’s three emergencies for the Round 3 encounter with the Eagles are Jacob Townsend, Anthony Miles and Connor Menadue.
