Richmond VWFL captain, Matthew Morris, chats to Roar Vision about the upcoming season.

May 3, 2019  6:00 AM

Richmond’s wheelchair football team will take a new look line-up into 2019 as they aim to go one better than last season’s Grand Final loss. 

Richmond were permitted just two pre-draft selections which they promptly used on vice-captains Yasmina McGlone and Tim Nield.

Following the draft, Captain Matt Morris, Adam Georgelin and Nathan Wilburn also remained at the Club. 

The 10-round competition will kick off on May 12 with Essendon, Hawthorn, Collingwood, St Kilda and the Tigers again the teams involved.

Richmond will face Essendon in a Dreamtime clash on May 26 which will shape as a marquee match. The VWFL team, like their AFL counterparts, will wear a special Indigenous jumper.

The game will take place on May 26, a day after Dreamtime at the ‘G.

Among the Tigers’ new draftees is youngster Teisha Shadwell, who is in the mix for a spot in Australia’s Paralympic basketball team. 

Shadwell was a star able-bodied basketballer before a serious foot injury.

Ben Milton, Chris Henderson, Vincent Naidu and Miranda Charlton (able-bodied) have also been added to Richmond’s squad for 2019.
