Out of the side that defeated Fremantle by 25 points at Optus Stadium last Sunday go Nankervis (adductor injury) and promising, young midfielder Jack Ross (syndesmosis injury).

Soldo, 23, 204cm and 106kg, has played eight senior games all-up for the Tigers, with his most recent being in the Round 21, 2018 fixture against Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium.

The 19-year-old, 200cm and 102kg Coleman-Jones, who was Richmond’s second pick in the 2017 national draft, is yet to make his AFL debut.
