Shaun Grigg is in for the Tigers

RICHMOND has made a late change for Sunday's top-of-the-table blockbuster against West Coast, recalling Shaun Grigg to replace Jack Higgins.

Grigg has missed the last two wins due to a hamstring issue, but the makeshift ruckman comes in to support Toby Nankervis against Eagles' duo Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett. 

West Coast is unchanged after recalling Jeremy McGovern, Dom Sheed, Lewis Jetta and Naitanui.

The Tigers are seeking to become the first interstate team to win at Optus Stadium since Sydney in round one, and extend their winning streak to seven games.

West Coast is on a seven-match run after beating the Giants on the road last round.

The winner of Sunday's showdown will move a game clear on top of the ladder.
