Ivan Maric and Dylan Grimes at Richmond training on Tuesday morning.

Richmond is set to recall two vital players for Wednesday night's Anzac Day Eve match against Melbourne at the MCG, after Jacob Hopper and Dylan Grimes got through training on Monday.

The duo's availability will provide a welcome boost for senior coach Adem Yze, with more than a dozen Tigers still on the club's injury list.

Yze is well aware his charges will be up against it around the contest against the Demons, especially after being smashed by West Coast's midfield before the Round 6 bye.


"To have Hopper come back with his leadership, that just flows through our footy club," he said.

"He had a terrific week on the track.

"We've worked on a lot of stoppage, we weren't happy with the way that we performed around stoppage and clearance (against West Coast) - we got smashed in that area.

"We've done a lot of work with our midfielders and so hopefully that comes out. But it is going to be a massive part of the game."
