Richmond has made two changes to its line-up for this Saturday's clash against North Melbourne at the Swinburne Centre. 

Inaugural AFLW Tiger Akec Makur Chuot will return for her first appearance of the 2022 season, in what will be her first AFLW outing since Round 8, 2021. 

The rebounding defender was a strong performer in Port Melbourne's VFLW practice match last weekend, standing out with her long-kicking and athleticism. 

Meagan Kiely, who was managed last week, has also been recalled for her fifth game of the year. 

The first-year Tiger has impressed in her maiden season at AFLW level, averaging 10 disposals and five tackles per game. 

They replace Hannah Burchell and Laura McClelland, who both suffered season-ending injuries during last weekend's match against the Western Bulldogs. 

Richmond's two emergencies for the clash with the Kangaroos are Sophie Molan and Sarah Dargan. 

Saturday afternoon's match at the Swinburne Centre kicks off at 2.10pm and will be broadcast live on 7mate, Fox Footy and Kayo Sports.
