Richmond, who are currently placed fourth on the ladder, will be looking to secure their spot in the top six and a resulting finals berth.

 

Superstar Brennan returns to bolster Richmond’s midfield following a six-week layoff.

Across her opening six games in the Yellow and Black, Brennan has averaged an impressive 22.5 disposals, five tackles and a goal per game.

Fellow AFLW-listed Tiger and athletic half-back Chuot also comes back into Richmond’s line-up after missing last Saturday’s loss to the Western Bulldogs.

Young guns Sophie Damon and Grace Egan will return for the clash, with experienced defender Laura Bailey also added to the mix.
