After successfully securing the minor premiership last weekend, the VFL Tigers will be looking to round out their regular season in style on Saturday when they face Essendon at Windy Hill.
Due to a bye in Round 21, the clash will mark the Tigers’ last home and away game of 2019.
The ladder-topping Tigers have named an extended squad of 31 for their meeting with the fourth-placed Bombers.
Maverick Weller will return from a groin complaint to give the Tigers an injection of experience, along with Kamdyn McIntosh, who was Richmond’s carryover emergency for last Sunday’s AFL win over Carlton.
Rounding out Richmond’s inclusions into the squad are Blake Grewar, Charlie Thompson, Billy Coates, Lachlan Street, Chad Harris and Nick Baltas.
