Chol replaces Soldo for tonight’s game

Richmond ruckman Ivan Soldo is a late withdrawal from tonight’s clash against Adelaide, with Mabior Chol coming in to take his place.

Soldo will miss the game with a virus, while Chol returns for his first AFL game since Round 23, 2016, and just his second overall.

Chol, 22, has produced recent impressive VFL form up forward and in the ruck, taking out the Sir Doug Nicholls Medal in the VFL Dreamtime match against Essendon last month, and booted two crucial, last-quarter goals to help get the Tigers over the line against a strong Geelong outfit last Saturday.

Tonight’s match at Adelaide Oval will kick off at 7.20 ACST.
