Squad selection: Round 17 View the squad for Richmond's Round 17 match against Brisbane.

Richmond has added five players to its squad for Sunday’s match against Brisbane at Etihad Stadium.

The Tigers have named Nick Vlastuin, Anthony Miles, Shai Bolton, Nathan Broad and Ivan Soldo in a 25-man squad for the Round 17 clash.

Vlastuin hasn’t played at senior level for Richmond since suffering a shoulder injury in the Round 7 loss to the Western Bulldogs.

He was a valuable contributor for the Tigers’ VFL team in their win against Casey last weekend, finishing with 15 disposals and five strong tackles.

Miles, whose last senior game was in Round 9 against his former club GWS, has been a dominant VFL player throughout the season.

The tenacious, ball-magnet midfielder is considered one of the top fancies for the VFL competition’s Liston Medal.

Bolton, Richmond’s No. 1 pick in last year’s National Draft, was a lively performer up forward in his return to the VFL side last weekend, while Broad has been in fine form across the backline since returning from a long-term shoulder injury a few weeks ago.

Developing, young ruckman Soldo, who made his senior league debut with the Tigers earlier this season (and has played two AFL games all-up), is coming off a VFL game where he had 12 disposals, six tackles and 41 hit-outs, against an experienced opponent in Melbourne-listed big man Jake Spencer.

At this stage, the two outs from the Richmond team that lost to St Kilda by 67 points last Saturday night, are Taylor Hunt and Tyson Stengle, who have both been omitted.

The Tigers will finalise their line-up tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at 5pm.
