Richmond VFL has its finalised line-up for Sunday's curtain-raiser clash against Brisbane at the Swinburne Centre.

The Tigers will welcome back midfielder Brad Melville for the clash with the Lions.

Melville, a member of Richmond VFL's leadership group, played eight matches for the Tigers in 2021 before his season ended early with an ACL injury.

Also coming into the side are Hugo Ralphsmith and Ivan Soldo, who have been omitted at AFL level, and Mate Colina, who returns from AFL Health & Safety Protocols.

The inclusions replace Samson Ryan, who will miss the clash due to concussion, Jess McGrath, Cam Olden and Austin Johnson.

The Tigers will be hoping to make it three wins on the trot this Sunday, while the Lions will be looking to bounce back from a two-point loss over Gold Coast last weekend.
